Run The Jewels – “Blockbuster Night Part 1”

Run The Jewels

The day after Killer Mike talked about Ferguson in a ridiculously eloquent CNN interview, he and El-P are ready to let the world know about their second album as Run The Jewels. Run The Jewels, their first album as a duo was one of last year’s best rap full-lengths, and from everything we’ve heard, the new one, entitled RTJ2, could be even stronger. Like that first album, RTJ2 will be available as a free download, though you’ll also be able to get it on vinyl or CD. Rage Against The Machine’s Zach De La Rocha and Blink-182’s Travis Barker, as previously reported, will both appear on the LP, and there will be some other still-unnamed guests as well. And after we heard a clip of the bracing first single “Blockbuster Night Part 1,” they’ve now shared the whole track, and holy shit this thing is a monster, a rigorous and fervid back-and-forth over a beat that sounds like a giant robot’s death-rattle. Listen to it below.

RTJ2 is out 10/28 on Mass Appeal. There’s also a free Adult Swim single coming 9/15.
