Run the Jewels announced Run the Jewels 3, the first new album sampling from Killer Mike and El-P., with hard-hitting new track “Talk to Me” via the Adult Swim Singles series

“Today is the two-year anniversary of RTJ2. Feels like a good day to…,” El-P tweeted before dropping a link to “Talk to Me.” Run the Jewels initially debuted the track, then called “Scenes,” at their Coachella performance in April.

The fast, El-P-produced cut sports fiery, relentless verses from both rappers. Killer Mike kicks it off: “Went to war with the devil and Satan / He wore a bad toupee and a spray tan … Obey no rules / I’m doing me / Smoked kush transportin’ to the airport / Customs found a joint in my passport / Cool cash and I gave him what he asked for / Goddamn it’s a motherfucking miracle / Small bribe, made it back into America / Hit Uber and maneuvered out the area.”

In late September, El-P revealed that Run the Jewels 3 “has officially been recorded,” but no official release date has been given. The duo also released new song “Panther Like a Panther (I’m the Shit)” for the Gears of War 4 trailer, but it’s unknown whether that song will be included on the RTJ3.
