Run The Jewels Will Not Concede. Their New Song Says It All (Audio)
Less than 24 hours after the 2016 US Presidential Election was called, Run The Jewels appears to punctuate the air of a partly astonished nation. “2100” featuring close affiliate Boots has a message of frustration with the same System that Killer Mike and El-P have rebelled against (as a unit) since R.A.P. However, for those just seeking anger, “2100” puts kindness, love, and humanity in the present—not just the future. Listen closely, especially towards Mike’s closing lines. Both MCs rally the masses that adore them, and have us all looking ahead—even if right now things seem uneasy.
With “2100,” R.T.J. jointly released the following statement: “For our friends. For our family. For everyone who is hurting or scared right now. Here is a song we wrote months ago. we weren’t planning on releasing it yet but… well it feels right, now. It’s about fear and it’s about love and it’s about wanting more for all of us. It’s called 2100. We hope it finds you well.”
For longtime fans of El-P, he, Mr. Len and Big Juss reflected on Company Flow’s Funcrusher Plus with Noisey for its 20th anniversary.
