Run The Jewels, the super dynamic duo of El-P and Killer Mike, two of the most distinctive and celebrated names in rap, released their highly anticipated sophomore album, Run The Jewels 2, on October 27th 2014. In addition to being made available as a free download, it was released on CD, 180gm Collector’s Edition 2XLP and and across all digital platforms. RTJ2 includes guests ranging from Zack de la Rocha to Travis Barker amongst others, but the duo maintains that the album is first and foremost about the creative partnership between the MCs themselves.

Run the Jewels 2 received widespread critical acclaim and was called #1 Album of the Year by many outlets such as Pitchfork, Complex and USA Today as well as best Best Rap/Hip Hop Album by Rolling Stone and SPIN.

An album like RTJ2 is rare. Decades from now, this album may just be revered as one of the best hip-hop records of our era, the total synchronicity of two talented artists reaching the apex of their prime.
