Run The Jewels stealth-release RTJ2

Run The Jewels

At last, a big and bold release to compensate for a fairly lax Q4 so far. And no, sorry, it isn’t anything to do with Rihanna and/or Kanye. It is, in fact, the Death Grips-style shock DIY-leak of the new Run The Jewels LP – ‘RTJ2’ – by RTJ’s Killer Mike and El P, earlier this morning (GMT). And it’s free, by the way. Here’s the link to go get it. GO!

The giveaway has only happened several days in advance of the official ‘RTJ2’ release date; which may prove an irritant for fans who’ve already ordered (ie paid for) the 11-track long-player on vinyl or CD via the band’s site. Still, the online reaction so far looks to be all-positive and appreciative, so maybe not.

Anyway this is a tracklisting to browse, and a featured ‘RTJ2’ track in the Zack de la Rocha-guesting ‘Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)’, to take in while you wait for the download to… download.
