El-P, one half of Run The Jewels, has released another snippet of Run The Jewels 3, their impending third album over Instagram, and it’s definitely the most, ah, imaginative one yet.
The caption says it all, really.
It’s exactly the kind of brash, off-the-wall self-aggrandising we have come to expect (and love) from the duo. This isn’t the first time we’ve had RTJ3 drip-fed to us through Instagram – bits and pieces have been coming our way since last year. In March, we heard direct from El-P’s Twitter that a 2016 release for the album “is achievable” due to a more stable economy (however slightly). As the hints seem to be coming at us thick & fast, is this the duo’s way of telling us that RTJ3 is imminent?
This newest puzzle piece is arguably the crown jewel so far, but who knows what to expect next. Maybe next time we hear from Run The Jewels, they’ll be dropping the album.
The pair have been anything but quiet in the lead-up to the album. They recently also featured on DJ Shadow’s new track Nobody Speak, have also soundtracked the new Marvel Black Panther series, as well as recently releasing a new video for RTJ2 singles Crown and Love Again ft. Gangsta Boo.
