Adult Swim has been doing more than broadcasting trippy shows with bizarre animation. Their "Singles" program is giving out free new music every week. They've posted their singles list which ranges from Flying Lotus to Slayer. Yesterday, they posted their single for October. As much as I love Slayer, no, it wasn't them. But the single for this week slays. Run the Jewels
are back with a surprise new track, "Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)."
Killer Mike and El-P obliterate this track. It's a synth-heavy, hi-hat dense, word-crafted catastrophe, but in a good way. Written for Rubble Kings
, a documentary on Bronx gangs, this track goes harder than the hardest corner in the big BX. The dynamic between the two MC's is just incredible. Not just in terms of content and style, but in the actual presentation of their voice. Killer Mike is the deep-voiced monster, and El-P is the nimble grim reaper. The track will be featured on the Rubble Kings
soundtrack that's set to release on Oct. 31st. So on that Bronx-bound train today, RUN YOUR POCKETS -- kidding, just Run the Jewels.
