Run The Jewels

El-P produced Killer Mike’s excellent 2012 album R.A.P. Music, and Killer Mike showed up on El-P’s excellent 2012 album Cancer For Cure. And now, that unlikely but excellent alliance marches on, as the two guys have formed a duo called Run The Jewels. We already posted a clip of their song “Banana Clipper,” but they’re getting ready to release a free online album in a couple of months, and now we get to hear a full song. The track is called “Get It,” and it is an almighty motherfucking monster, with the two guys trading off lines over a beat that sounds like someone beating up Kanye’s “Clique” with an aluminum baseball bat. Download it below.

The Run The Jewels full-length is coming in June from Fool’s Gold.

  3. Sooooo good. Thank you El and Mike.
