Run The Jewels – “Ooh LA LA” (Feat. DJ Premier & Greg Nice)

At one point Run The Jewels promised RTJ4 would be out before Coachella. Thanks to coronavirus, Coachella is postponed, and the rest of the music industry is in chaos. Chaos, though, is RTJ's natural element, so it's good that they're rolling this shit out. More »

Bun B – “Myself” (Feat. Run The Jewels)

10 or 15 years ago, if someone would've told me that there would've been a Bun B solo album with an El-P guest verse, I might've had a heart attack. But that's where we are. Different strains of underground rap converge all the time. And Bun B, the Texan rap originator, plays host to Run … More »
