Last year, Run the Jewels, the hip-hop duo consisting of El-P and Killer Mike, released its self-titled debut as a free download. Not but a year later, the duo is ready to make a statement yet again, and have announced a sequel, titled Run the Jewels 2, for an upcoming release.
You can stream an excerpt from “Blockbuster Night Part 1”, the first cut to be released from the Run the Jewels 2 sessions, below:
On July 29th, El-P announced through his Twitter account that Run the Jewels 2 was “one day away from being fully mixed”. There is no word on a specific release date yet.
