Hip-hop Duo, Run The Jewels
(Killer Mike and EL-P respectively) just released
their new album Run The Jewels 2
, and if that wasn't exciting enough, they just dropped a dope bonus track, "Blockbuster Track Pt. 2," featuring fellow rappers Despot and Wiki.
The track has an insistent bass line and beat; and there is something simultaneously scary and sexy about it. Maybe it's because Halloween is right around the corner, and I've got blood and gore on the mind, but the track sounds to me like the sonic manifestation of an unavoidable death—it's like that moment in a slasher movie when the killer calmly and slowly pursues their frantic victim, who obviously doesn't stand a chance.
It says something fucked up about you that you gain satisfaction from watching this hunt, but you do...so just sit back and enjoy it. Listen below.
