(AllHipHop News) Run The Jewel fans are in luck.
The hip-hop duo comprised of producer El-P and rapper Killer Mike has gone 3 for 3 with their self-titled albums, with their last project RTJ3 still hitting home after its 2016 release.
With the announcement of Run The Jewels 4, the bar has been set for the producer/rapper combo.
In fact, one Reddit user writes, “Really hoping RTJ can go 4/4.”
The announcement included both El-P and Mike issuing a statements.
“It’s been a minute, so we wanted to take a moment to update our favorite people on all things RTJ. Let's start with the obvious… We've been going hard on RTJ4 and have a genuine excitement to share new music with you all. We stand behind our statement that this record is going to punch you in the fucking face and burn everything in its path. We thank you for your continued patience as we put together what we believe will be our best record yet.”
Just a few weeks prior, RTJ posted to their IG page a photo of themselves with legendary producer Rick Rubin in the middle.
The caption reads, “Thanks for letting us spend the week recording in your studio, Rick. Be back soon…” with a #RTJ4 hashtag to follow.
