RTJ3 Album Release Info & New Single

At long last the highly anticipated and long-awaited third offering fron Run The Jewels duo Killer Mike and El-P is on its way. This morning an email went out to the RTJ mailing list with "a message from Jaime and Mike" announcing RTJ3 would drop January 13th, 2017 both digitally and physically.

RTJ3 In addition to the album news they also dropped a third single fron the albom entitled Legend Has It which you can check out below.

The album art for the 14-track album features a 3D aculpted take on the iconic El-P conceived & Nick Gazin drawn pistol & fist featuring the hands "cast in metal, chromed and gold-plated." In describing the artwork they explained the meaning and significance of this and thir prior two album covers.

"For us, the RTJ1 hands were about 'taking what's yours' - your world, your life, your attitude. The RTJ2 hands were wrapped in bandages, signifying injury and healing, which for us represented the growth in ideas and tone of that album. For RTJ3 the bandages are off, the chain is gone and the hands have been transformed into gold. For us this represents the idea that there is nothing to take that exists outside of yourself. You are the jewel.



The 14-track RTJ3 boasts appearances by Joi Gilliam, Danny Brown, Kamasi Washington and more. Check out the full tracklist below.
