El-P produced two of last year’s best rap albums: His own Cancer For Cure and Killer Mike’s R.A.P. Music. El and Mike are good friends and frequent collaborators, so the team-up didn’t end there. They’ve now formed a duo called Run The Jewels, and they’re working on an album together, one both of them have been teasing forever. And now El has posted an 84-second clip of a track called “Banana Clipper,” and oh my god this thing is a monster. If the idea of an El-P/Killer Mike album is remotely appealing to you, than the little piece of music you’ll hear below should get your blood pumping.
The Run The Jewels album is coming sometime this summer.
