Run The Jewels

Run The Jewels - 2013

Run The Jewels is the new moniker for underground titans Killer Mike and El-P, who teamed up last year for Mike's epic R.A.P. Music album, with Mike at the mic (no pun intended) and and El-P on the boards. For this roller coaster of a half-hour, El-P joins Killer Mike on the vocals, and the results are truly tremendous. From the outstanding first single Get It, one of the best songs in any genre this year, to the brilliant Kanye and Jay dissing Sea Legs, to the final track, fit for any hip hop fans' holiday playlist, hilariously named A Christmas Fucking Miracle, Run The Jewels is fun, angry, noisy and overall one of the best albums of the year, all in a ten track, 30 minute free package. Favorite songs: 1-2, 4-10 Least favourite songs: 36" Chain Most overrated song: Banana Clipper most underrated song: Get It

I've got this one, the Chance mixtape, and the Q-Tip as well, but just haven't had the time yet. Can't wait!

side note: I did like Yeezus a ton, but this sounded miles more '80s Def Jam-ish then Kanye's.
