Run The Jewels 3 is currently in the works, as confirmed by El-P via Instagram. Sharing a clip of a very mean beat which is set to feature on the new album, El-P has reignited RTJ fans’ thirst for new material. RTJ3 will surely continue on the trend of back-to-back-to-back critically acclaimed records for the duo, who have only been churning out their joint works since 2013. RTJ2 was met with love from fans and critics alike, upon its highly anticipated release in 2014, and even though we had that pretty dope (if a little left-of-centre) remix project Meow The Jewels this year, we’re all eagerly awaiting a whole new body of work from Killer Mike and El-P.
And while this is an encouraging first listen to what’s to come, it’ll probably be a minute before we see anything release, as El-P reminded all of our impatient asses that the duo have just come off a pretty busy touring period. But, if Killer Mike has his way, we can look forward to more of the good shit “every year till the world ends”. We’ll definitely be keeping our ears to the ground for updates on this one—in the meantime, you can check out the snippet below.
