It’s been a little over three years since Killer Mike and El-P released their last studio album, ‘RTJ3’, which NME called a “bar-raising collaboration from the most buzzed-over act in rap,” and now El-P has updated fans on when they can expect to hear their next release.
A fan shared that the only reason he’s been on Twitter the last few months is because he hopes to get a release date for ‘RTJ4’. He added that El-P and Killer Mike has him “stressed out” and asked them to “drop that album already. Or give us a date so we have something to look forward to.”
El-P replied: “i do apologize for your stress. the album will be out before we play coachella and def not this month that’s all i can say now. we will announce a hard date soon.”
