Run The Jewels – “Oh My Darling Don’t Cry”
Hopefully, you’ve already got 10/28 circled in red a couple of times on your mental calendar. That’s the day that Run The Jewels, the duo of El-P and Killer Mike, release RTJ2, their second album as a duo, and this thing is practically guaranteed to swallow up the universe. After sharing the monstrously intense first single “Blockbuster Night Part 1,” the duo has now dropped a free download of the album track “Oh My Darling Don’t Cry” as part of the Adult Swim Singles Series. It is an absolute beast of a song, with Mike and El continuing to gel and tag-teaming some ultra-vicious bars. And it features the noisemaking talents of Michael Winslow, who you might know as Larvelle Jones, the guy who made all the noises with his mouth in the Police Academy movies. (El was trying to figure out how to get Winslow on his album for a long time on Twitter, so his appearance is a triumph, just like everything else about this song.) Stop whatever you’re doing and download the song below.
RTJ2 is out 10/28 on Mass Appeal.
