Run The Jewels have always sort of done things their own way and they’re to be commended for that. This time around they’re releasing Run The Jewels 2 for FREE on October 27th and taking pre-orders for tour dates instead. And you can’t talk about them right meow without mentioning the fact that there is a Kickstarter for a Meow the Jewels album. If it raises $45K in the next month, they’ll re-record the entire album using cat sounds to replace the instrumentals. El-P, you crazy bruh.
In the meantime, holy shit, they released this single from the upcoming album called “Oh My Darlings Don’t Cry” and it’s one of the best I’ve ever heard from them. The whole track is a non-stop journey through filthy space with Captain Killer Mike, escalating at every step along the way. By the time you hit the end you’re left wondering what the fuck just happened.
