Run The Jewels, the dynamic duo of rap, continue their scintillating journey into the hearts and minds of music lovers everywhere with their latest and greatest album to date, 2020's RTJ4. And in celebration of their 2022/2023 tour with Rage Against The Machine, they've decided to unleash an incredible new vinyl variant to Jewel Runners everywhere! A brilliant mix of clear vinyl with black, blue and pink splatter.
RTJ's fourth studio album features guest appearances from Greg Nice, DJ Premier, 2 Chainz, Pharrell Williams, Mavis Staples, Josh Homme, and frequent collaborator Zack de la Rocha. RTJ4 debuted at number 10 on the US Billboard 200, their first top 10 album on the chart. The album includes the singles "Yankee and the Brave (Ep. 4)", "Ooh La La" and "Just".
Trim with no filler, this fourth set from the outspoken duo provides relevant history lessons that are more useful than a classroom textbook. Rousing and lyrically dexterous, Killer Mike and El-P deliver their densest collection yet, balancing clever bon mots with tongue-twisting screeds decrying police brutality, systemic racism, class injustice, and a litany of other ills plaguing the nation.
On their fourth installment, Killer Mike and El-P are back to tune up the ruling class and the racist police state, this time streamlining the process and settling into their most natural rhythm.
Because of the responsibility they feel to their audience, El-P and Killer Mike refuse to sugarcoat what they know to be true. And what RTJ4 does is make it obvious how much power regular, everyday people have.
If a hip-hop album alone could change the world, this might do it
RTJ4 sounds vital, current, yet again prophetic
