(AllHipHop News) Rap group Run The Jewels have announced the release date and tracklisting for the highlight anticipated third album RTJ3.
Killer Mike and El-P’s latest release will hit the Internet on January 13, while physical copies of the album will drop internationally, on January 20.
A number of artists assist the duo on their third album, including Trina, Danny Brown, Tunde Adebimpe of TV On The Radio and others.
The group’s signature pistol and fist imagery on the album’s artwork were sculptured, photographed and turned into 3D images for the cover of RTJ3.
“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.”
