Run the Jewels

Album: Run the Jewels 3
Release Date: January 13th
On Christmas Eve, Run the Jewels jumped their own January 13th release date and gave away RTJ3 as a download and on streaming services, resulting in a wellspring of critical praise and a number 35 placement on Billboard's album charts. "To recap: jumped the street date by three weeks, gave the record away for free, no physical yet, still sold 22k copies in week one. Fully indie," wrote El-P on Twitter. El and Killer Mike's latest agit-rap treatise includes guests like Danny Brown, Tunde Adebimpe from TV on the Radio, comeback rapper of the year Trina, Kamasi Washington and Zach de la Rocha.
