One of the best rap albums of last year was Run The Jewels, the eponymous ripshit debut from the all-star duo of Killer Mike and El-P. If the album had been a one-off, it would’ve been one of the best ever. But El and Mike know they’ve got a good thing going, and they’re planning to follow that album up with another one this year. And the first thing we’ve heard from it is an absolutely monstrous 100-second clip of a new track called “Blockbuster Night Part 1,” a hellacious tag-team throwdown from two guys who know exactly what they’re doing. We don’t usually post song snippets on Stereogum, but this is the sort of situation where we make an exception. Listen below.
Run The Jewels 2 is coming sometime in 2014, and I cannot wait.
