This afternoon, El-P shared a short clip of audio on Instagram tagged #RTJ3—presumably, a cut from what would be Run the Jewels 3, following Run the Jewels and Run the Jewels 2 (which was our favorite album of the year). Check it out below.
On Twitter, El-P said Run the Jewels 3 won’t be coming this year. (The first Run the Jewels LP came out in 2013, while the second followed in 2014.)
fyi RTJ3 is almost definitely not coming in 2015. touring all year but every chance we get we are working hard on it.
