This is your Run The Jewels PSA. Pay close attention.
So on Record Store Day this year, Run The Jewels released their Bust No Moves EP, featuring four unheard, rare, or non-album tracks. While it was as difficult to buy as I predicted, fear not, 'Bust No Moves' has been shared online for all to enjoy. El-P & Killer Mike are joined by Atlanta rapper SL Jones on this one, which features a more subdued instrumental but the same lyrical prowess that we've come to know, love, and expect.
Next up is 'Don't Trip', a Run The Jewels & Sizzy Rocket featuring Flosstradamus track. I know Flosstradamus from their collaborations and tours with Diplo, and it's remarkably more brash and 'Turnt Up' than any RTJ release. Their contributions are always welcomed, but too brief, and means that they depart without really saying much.
Finally, last month Killer Mike shared a video for his solo track 'Ric Flair' as a birthday present to both himself and the fans. While nobody might have seen this one coming, the track from Mike's 2011 Pl3dge album still sounds fresh, and I love to see artists exhibiting random acts of artistry simply for the love of it.
Hopefully this influx of music will tide us over until either feline sounds of Meow The Jewels or Run The Jewels 3, or that the duo continue to keep up the steady release of great music.
