Run the Jewels Deliver ‘Run the Jewels 2′ Tracklist, Album Cover and Tour Dates
Hip-hop heads have a little something extra to look forward to this fall. As continuously promised, Run the Jewels will release their second album later this year. Today (Sept. 2), sees the revelation of El-P and Killer Mike's album art, tracklist and release date.
Sporting artwork similar to the duo's debut, 'Run the Jewels 2' will officially hit the streets on Oct. 28. This further stacks the month in big releases; Tinashe's debut and Lil Wayne's 'Tha Carter V' are due as well. 'Run the Jewels 2' will also be a more guest-heavy affair with four features appearing, including Travis Barker and the BOOTS, of Beyonce fame.
The original 'Run the Jewels' album didn't have the political fervor as El-P or Killer MIke's respective solo projects. However, it was one of the best rap albums of the year by simply succeeding at the basics: razor sharp rhymes and dope beats. Anticipation was high as soon as the sequel was announced. 'Blockbuster Night Part 1,' the album's lead single, suggests that lightning does strike twice sometimes.
In addition to the good news, the rap team has announced new tour dates starting on Oct. 15. This trip will last until the new year. Check out the dates below.
