Run the Jewels Album Has Leaked. Listen to It Then Support Real Hip-Hop (Audio Stream & Download)

The gift and the curse…The digital era has provided unfettered access to music. You can have anything ever recorded–anything–with just a few clicks. For fans, this is the golden age. There has been no better time. For artists, it’s a mixed bag. On the one hand the direct connection with the audience is unprecedented. On the other hand, there is no more control of when their art is released and on what terms.

Today, Run the Jewels new album, Run the Jewels 2, was leaked. Rather than sit by passively, Killer Mike and El-P have decided to…well, Run the Jewels. They have released the full stream of the album, as well as the full download. They are asking that if you enjoy what you hear, you hop over to iTunes and buy it. A fair request from one of Hip-Hop’s most daring duos, currently. Check out the stream (and download) below.


Here’s the free download.
