Run The Jewels never seem to disappoint when it comes to new music.


Run The Jewels surprised fans by releasing RTJ 4 a few days early in light of everything that has been happening in the world. At its core, the group has always been political and that certainly shines through on their new project. One of the less political tracks on the project, "Never Look Back" is certainly a banger that will have you nodding your head and making faces to the beat.

El-P's production shines through on this cut as the menacing beat in the background continues to loop and allows plenty of space for Killer Mike and El-P to do their thing. Throughout the track, both MCs talk about a questionable past and how to be unapologetic about it. The refrain "Never Look Back" ultimately speaks to the idea that we should always move forward no matter what.

Quotable Lyrics:

Never look back, heard her say that before
Sound like the type of advice I'd ignore
Funny how time feel off tick tock
You thinking death's beat, it drop a clock shot
Never smoke sad, I heard that's a thought
Got forty-four bucks on the smoke, whatchu got?
