“Run The Jewels 4” is still a work in progress

Last year, Killer Mike and El-P teased fans by announcing that they had plans for their next album Run The Jewels 4. They released their album Run The Jewels 3 in 2016. Since then both have become preoccupied with other projects.

Fans have been awaiting new music for the past couple of years, but they might have to wait a little longer. El-P recently wiped his Instagram clean. Many thought this meant he was getting ready to rollout Run the Jewels 4.

On Tuesday, December 11th he took to Twitter to announce that Run The Jewels 4 is still a work in progress and that it would not be dropping anytime soon:

The rapper/producer put a post on Instagram writing that they’re currently in the studio working on the record with hopes to release it in 2019.  He also assured fans that this is not a delay and that they are excited to work on new music.

a month ago i quit smoking. a few months before that i got married. a few months before that i scored a film. a few months before that i got off tour. now i am in full RTJ4 mode and it felt like a decent time to start fresh on this app. don’t panic. before you even realize it there will be hundreds of brand new photos of me that i think i look cool in and when the time comes there will be snippets and goodies relating to the creation of our next record (dropping in 2019). i want to thank you all for an amazing year. being in run the jewels has changed my life in more ways than i can explain and i can’t wait to continue this shit. we have really big things in store and we are taking our time making them all so we thank you in advance for your patience. i can say without a hint of doubt that it will be worth the wait. have a safe and sane holiday. ❤️
