Rappers EI-P and Killer Mike combine to form one the world’s boldest hip-hop duos.

Run the Jewels’ new album, RTJ3, echoes heavy bass beats and provocative lyrics that epitomise their quest to express blunt truth.

Trap-beats, fast rap, resounding synths and jazz undertones create an undeniable punch that challenges social structure through heat and defiance.

This third record harnesses the duo’s rage and energy with mature and intentional composition and lyrical honesty, which allows the group to make an undeniable call to action to tackle global oppression.
