The first RTJ was one of my favourite albums of 2013, and glad to find an email from Jaime (El-P) and Mike (Killer Mike) releasing RTJ2 a few days early. I guess you’ll still have to wait for Meow The Jewels though…yes RTJ2 with cats. It is a thing, as you can see from the trailer below.
Back to the feline-free RTJ2 release: a few listens and it’s great, a dark hiphop vibe just for Halloween, especially Oh My Darling Don’t Cry, Crown, Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck) with Zack De La Rocha and Early. Is it me or is there a trap/cloud rap feel to the production? (all the run-run-run stutters, and ‘fuck the slow mo’ digs?).
If you’re at all a fan of hiphop, you need this. You can download it here.
