Run the Jewels share “Talk to Me” from ‘RTJ3′
Run the Jewels have been teasing RTJ3, their third album, for a while now. Now, El-P and Killer Mike have finally given us the first real taste of this thing. They've shared "Talk to Me" via the Adult Swim singles series, and its an immediately satisfying, prototypical RTJ banger.
This very much gives us a strong dose of what we know and love about this group. The infectious mixture of tongue-in-cheek braggadocio and righteous anger, the great contrast between Mike's booming lyrical gut-punches and El-P's sly, intellectualized wordplay, and of course El's cartoon-exaggerated, colorful, detailed, thunderous production--it's all on full display here.
No word yet on a release date for RTJ3, but you can listen to "Talk to Me" below.
