Run the Jewels (El-P and Killer Mike) have dropped a cut from their forthcoming Run the Jewels 2, "Blockbuster Night Part 1".

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.

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.
