Run The Jewels, the super dynamic duo of El-P and Killer Mike, two of the most distinctive and celebrated names in rap, have announced their sophomore album RTJ2 is set to drop on October 28. Newly signed to Mass Appeal Records, the album will be released in a variety of formats, including free download, CD, LP, and digital. The immensely anticipated album includes guests ranging from Zach de la Rocha to Travis Barker among others TBA, but the duo maintain the album is first and foremost about the creative partnership between the MCs themselves. “We are very excited to bring you the next chapter of Run The Jewels via the good folks at Mass Appeal” states El-P. “We can make no promises about the safety of any animals involved in the creation of this record.” Killer Mike adds, “It is the best rap group album since RTJ1!” In conjunction with the announcement Run The Jewels have shared the full version of “Blockbuster Night Part 1″, an excerpt of which dominated the internet on its release just a few weeks ago. The album will be preceded by the duo’s highly anticipated contribution to Adult Swim’s Single Series on September 15.
While some thought the MCs to be an unlikely pairing on paper, the duo subverted and pulverized all expectations with their critically lauded Run The Jewels collaborative LP last year. Tapping into the creative synergy they’d discovered in 2012 on Mike’s R.A.P. Music album (produced by El-P) and El’s Cancer 4 Cure album (featuring Mike), Run The Jewels cemented their musical alliance with a set of uncompromisingly raw, often hilarious, system booming hip-hop, garnering a bounty of critical accolades including the likes of Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, XXL, SPIN, New York Times, and many more. Now well known for their massively energetic live sets, they will be touring North America in support of the album all of November.
