Run The Jewels 3 Will Be Out In The Next 2 Months

Run The Jewels are back, and their new album Run The Jewels 3 is so close that you can practically smell the witty one-liners and the weed that inspired them. After months of anticipation, El-P and Killer Mike not only performed a Halloween-themed song with Stephen Colbert last week, but they dropped the first official single from the album, Talk To Me. They have also announced the first leg of a 2017 world tour, and while the current listings only include US dates, we’re crossing our fingers and toes that the tour will include a long-overdue visit back to Australia.

El-P has now taken to Twitter to officially deliver an album deadline. He has promised fans that at the VERY latest, it’ll be out in the first week of January 2017:

Considering we’re already in the first week of November, this means that we’ll have a brand new Run The Jewels album on our hands in within two months (but hopefully we’ll get it a bit earlier so I can make a joke about it being A Christmas Fucking Miracle.)

That is pretty bloody fantastic news considering both RTJ and RTJ2 are among the best hip-hop albums of the last decade.

You can hear a little more of the new album in this trailer for Gears of War 4, with more available within the game.
