Duo's second album due for release this October
Run The Jewels have unveiled the tracklist and artwork (above) for their upcoming album ‘RTJ2’.
The second full-length to be released by rappers El-P and Killer Mike as Run The Jewels, the 11-track record features collaborations with Rage Against The Machine’s Zack de la Rocha and Blink 182’s Travis Barker, among others. It is scheduled to be released October 28 on Nas’s imprint Mass Appeal.
Pitchfork reports that the duo will also tour the album alongside Joey Bada$$, Despot, and Ratking, with shows across North America, Australia and New Zealand taking place from October to January.
Speaking earlier this year, Killer Mike said he and his partner were like “rabid dogs” making the record.
“[It’s] much darker and much harder than I thought it would be. It’s pushed me into some darker crevices of my personality,” Mike said. “We’re knee-deep in creating. Throwing flows and patterns out, just picking beats we like. It’s all pretty instinctual. We’re just in there rapping like rabid dogs right now. Neither one of us are resting on our laurels.”
The tracklisting is as follows:
‘Oh My Darling Don’t Cry’
‘Blockbuster Night Part 1’
‘Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)’ (feat. Zack de la Rocha)
‘All My Life’
‘Lie, Cheat, Steal’
‘Early’ (feat. BOOTS)
‘All Due Respect’ (feat. Travis Barker)
‘Love Again’ (Akinyele Back)
‘Crown’ (feat. Diane Coffee)
