Alt Hip Hop legend El P has teamed up with long time Big Boi collaborator Killer Mike, performing under the moniker Run the Jewels. With a full length album dropping free on Fools Gold in June, this is a collab which pushes on from El P’s critically acclaimed solo album – Cancer For Cure. If this beat – ‘Get It’ – is anything to go by, RTJ will continue the stripped down and gloriously distorted sound that EL P perfected for his 2012 LP. A dark, brooding mixture of crusty breaks, brass samples and buzzing 808 bass kicks echos classic Anti-Pop Consortium and the more underground cuts of Outkast. Real rap for real rap fans, on MP3 below.
