Travis Barker & Run The Jewels – “Forever”

Run The Jewels just released their monstrous, long-awaited album RTJ4 last month, and that should be enough Killer Mike and El-P verses to sit around and process for a while. But today, we get a couple of new ones. Run The Jewels have teamed up with Travis Barker, the Blink-182 drummer and moonlighting … More »

Save Stereogum: An ‘00s Covers Comp

I started Stereogum in 2002 with a LiveJournal and a dream (to get free CDs). Seriously though, I started this site to discuss new music with strangers on the internet.

The 50 Best Albums Of 2020 So Far

You've seen the memes. It's only been five months and 2020 has already been a historical shitshow of a year. Thousands and thousands died while the rest of us slowly lost our minds in lockdown.

RMR Has It

It was the giddiest kind of what the fuck: a black man in gold fronts, a ski mask, and a bulletproof vest, surrounded by peers wielding all manner of guns, passionately crooning about hating police and getting revenge on ex-lovers, to the sound of... Rascal Flatts? The artist's name was RMR, pronounced "rumor" -- fitting … More »

Album Of The Week: Run The Jewels RTJ4

The first song on RTJ4 climaxes with a police standoff. "I got one round left, 100 cops outside," Killer Mike raps. "I could shoot at them or put one between my eyes." Over one of those controlled explosions El-P made his legend on, a beat that sounds like bombs going off underground and in the … More »

Run the Jewels – “Run the Jewels 4” (Album Review)

Run the Jewels are a super-duo consisting of Killer Mike & El-P. They first crossed paths with each other in 2012 when the latter produced Mike’s 5th album R.A.P. (Rebellious African People) Music in it’s entirety, but came together officially the following year with a self-titled debut. Their sophomore album in 2014 is my personal favorite though, as it’s a lot darker. Last we heard from Mike & El-Producto together in a full-length capacity was in 2016 with their much more political 3rd album ...
