If you don’t have Run the Jewels on your year-end list, then we aren’t friends.
Now that that’s out of the way, how about a world premier-ier-ier snippet of the unreleased bonus track that will be available on the Euro release of the project?
The greatest rap group in the world and I ran through Europe over the last two weeks of November, tearing down Cannibus Cup in Amsterdam as well as Zurich, Paris and Copenhagen, but the highlights of the trip were definitely in London. First, we played to a sold out crowd at Brixton Electric, then we came back the next weekend to do press, including a Boiler Room taping.
Before the guys’ interview and performance, I played a set of joints from each of their catalogues, finishing up with the debut of “Pew Pew Pew” featuring DJ Q-Bert. They only authorized me to play the first minute-and-a-half or so, so Q’s cutting isn’t included, but trust it is every bit as good as one might expect.
