'RTJ3' is coming in January
Run The Jewels will return in January with their third album ‘RTJ3’.
The hip-hop duo, who consist of Atlanta rapper Killer Mike and producer/rapper El-P, first formed in 2013, the same year they released their self-titled debut album. ‘Run The Jewels 2’ followed in October 2014, which was released on Mass Appeal/RED.
Killer Mike and El-P first announced their latest project last December, and have proceeded to tease cuts from the new album over the course of the year – including the Boots collaboration ‘2100’, released as a response to Donald Trump’s election victory in the US last month.
The duo confirmed on their Twitter account today (December 1) that their new album – titled ‘RTJ3’ – will be released digitally on January 13 2017 as a free download. The day will also mark the release of the physical version of the album in the US, while the international physical release will follow a week later, on January 20.

The duo also shared the new song ‘Legend Has It’ to go along with the announcement – listen below.
