Run The Jewels

RTJ4

    Run The Jewels, the lauded duo of El-P and Killer Mike, have shared the long-awaited details of their feverishly anticipated new album, Run The Jewels 4.

    This eleven song, 40 minute powerhouse is their most ferocious and focused effort to date, and sports a lineup of all-star guests including Pharrell Williams, Mavis Staples, 2 Chainz, Zack de la Rocha, Josh Homme, DJ Premier, and Greg Nice. Recorded primarily at Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La Studios and the iconic Electric Lady Studios in NYC, RTJ4 represents two years of intensive writing, recording, distilling, and amplifying the most potent elements of their music.

    The result is a collection of wall-to-wall bangers illuminating the group's unique ability to straddle the worlds of pointed social commentary and raw, boisterous fun.


    STAFF COMMENTS

    Patrick says: Bombastic, aggressive, assertive, political and absolutely effin BANGING, RTJ are back to save you from whack MCs and company stooges. Fire from start to finish here, but I'm advising you to bump "Ooh La La", the prescient "Walking In The Snow" and the trapping "JU$T" featuring RATM's Zack De La Rocha.

    OXP - a duo combined of Parisian beatsmith Onra, and Pomrad, a composer and multi- instrumentalist from Belgium, give you a class of ’93, West Coast nugget of hip-hop gold – ‘California’ ft Mr Getto Jam himself for this vinyl only, Ramrock Red Records 7 inch release.

    Four fingers up, two twisted in the middle, in your low rider with the top down. Head nodding to the track on Trend City Radio with the homies, cruising along a palm lined boulevard in the eternal, shimmering sunshine of the West Coast. It’s Hip Hop Summer for life, conceptualized around the vintage synths and drum machines that marked the Golden Era.
