After years of waiting, the creative brain trust that is El-P and Killer Mike, better known as Run The Jewels, have finally wrapped on Run The Jewels 4. El Producto confirmed the news on Twitter this morning with a concise yet hype-inducing proclamation: “RTJ4 is done.” Given that the pair have been busy finalizing the project for a minute now, with El previously describing it as a “filthy, dirty, dusty” body of work, the news comes as a pleasant surprise to the duo’s loyal fanbase.
In November, El-P told fans that the album would be “out earlyish next year” — meaning in 2020 — and promised that “it’s hard as f*ck.” In November, the album wasn’t mixed yet and still needed sample clearances, but it looks like all that’s been sorted out. While there still isn’t a release date in mind, fans should expect to see a single sometime in the near future.
Meanwhile, the duo is planning on going on tour with a reunited Rage Against The Machine beginning this spring, which could indicate something coming down the pipeline soon. The tour kicks off with their appearance at the 2020 BUKU Music + Art Project in March and runs through the end of the summer, including an appearance at Boston Calling in May.
