The always vocal Killer Mike is one of the more aware rappers in the the world. The Atlanta rapper has already gained newfound respect from many after his poignant and expressive thoughts about the tension and unrest in Ferguson, Missouri and now he and producer El-P are proud to announce their second album as Run The Jewels is on the way.
Last year’s project from the duo was a seismic shift in bawdy raps from Mike and production from P that made every rap critic jump for joy. Titled RTJ2, the duo’s new LP will be for free, just like their first outing and the first single, “Blockbuster Night Part 1” is absolutely nuts. Mike & El-P go back and forth over the grumbles and groans of robot noise and gorilla sized drums kicking down a couple doors.
RJ2 will be available on Mass Appeal Records. Hear “Blockbuster Night Part 1” below
