Run The Jewels reunite with Zack de la Rocha, Nas tags along

If you enjoyed the first collaboration between hip hop tag team champions Run The Jewels and Rage Against The Machine frontman Zack de la Rocha from the wildly successful Run The Jewels 2 album, Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck), then this photo is going to have you going from six to midnight.

screen-shot-2015-08-24-at-12-50-50-pmYes, that’s a whole lot of rap royalty packed into one studio, with RTJ, Zack and now the Illmatic one himself, Nas, seemingly getting in on the fun. The photo was posted on El-P’s Instagram account with the infuriatingly ambiguous caption ‘This happened’.


Fingers crossed the ‘this’ is in reference to Run The Jewels 3, and it involves all four of them, because that would be just fantastic. We all know how amazing Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck Was) and Nas has previously performed onstage with Run The Jewels, with sexy results. Perhaps they just all happened to run into each other at the same studio, it’s all a giant mystery right now.

If you simply can’t wait until RTJ3 and need a fixin’, their latest release Meow The Jewels features cats and is uh… insane. We also caught up with the pair a little while back, with sexy results. We’ll keep you posted on anything that comes of this team-up.
