EDITORS’ NOTES

Fueled by social injustice and a changing of the guard, Run the Jewels claps back with both mics blazing. 3 boils over with ruthless disses, thunderous bass, and pinpoint scratches. The guest list is thick. Kamasi Washington adds mournful horn. Zack de la Rocha returns with a 16-bar salute. Trina, Danny Brown, Tunde Adebimpe, and BOOTS join the (revolutionary) party. On “A Report to the Shareholders,” Killer Mike recounts his time running through the election-year minefield as a social and political activist.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Where did the energy go?

I have enjoyed RTJ since I first discovered them the day I heard "close your eyes". The xmas drop was a cool surprise but this has less bangers than RTJ2, in my opinion.

The last two minutes, of the last song, really got me anxious for zack's up coming solo joint.

About Run The Jewels

A one-off project that quickly evolved into a hip-hop superduo, Run the Jewels feature rappers El-P and Killer Mike. Formed after El-P produced Killer Mike's 2012 album, R.A.P. Music, the duo released Run the Jewels in 2013, an album credited to Killer Mike and El-P and released on Fool's Gold. Critically popular and with a sizable fan base to boot, Run the Jewels quickly evolved into a going concern when their sophomore effort, RTJ2, landed in 2014. A crowdfunded remix version of the album with all the music replaced by samples of cats was released in 2015 as Meow the Jewels. It featured guest appearances from Portishead's Geoff Barrow, Dan the Automator, and Internet sensation Lil Bub. The group ended the year with the single "Rubble Kings (Dynamite on the Street)," released by the Adult Swim label. In 2016, the duo announced RTJ3, which was set for release in early 2017. However, on Christmas Eve 2016, they unexpectedly uploaded the album as another free download. Featuring appearances by Joi, Trina, Boots, Danny Brown, Tunde Adebimpe, Kamasi Washington, and the return of Zack de la Rocha, RTJ3 debuted in the Billboard Top 40 and at number eight on the R&B/hip-hop chart. ~ David Jeffries & Neil Z.
