#50: Run The Jewels – Talk To Me


Killer Mike and El-P have set a mean pace over the last few years, so it is perhaps surprising that it took until the end of October for new material to drop out of the ether. The suggestion is out there that RTJ3 will be with us before the end of the year, which causes havoc for anyone trying to make a year-end list too early. This first taste is a winner though (as is ‘2100’, which they released the morning after the election). It finds Mike taking aim, inevitably, at Donald Trump (“I went to war with the Devil and Shaytan, he wore a bad toupee and a spray tan”), as well as a swipe at those “All Lives Matter-ass white folk”. Something tells me that with the political nightmare we find ourselves in, RTJ are not going anywhere.
