The highly anticipated Run the Jewels album RTJ4 is finally here. Two days before its scheduled release, frontman El-P made the surprise announcement on Twitter. View the album’s tracklist below.
“At 12pm RTJ4 drops,” he wrote. “It’s our hearts, humor, anger + love of hip-hop music. We hope it moves you, makes you smile, makes you dance, makes you think, and makes you nod your head.”
Over the past few months, the album rollout has experienced as many changes. Originally, the group planned to release the album in time for their Coachella set. Subsequently, the group was to join Rage Against the Machine for their reunion tour.
With the free download, Run the Jewels is encouraging fans to put their money to use elsewhere. The purchase page for the album invites fans to donate to the National Lawyers Guild. Find the link at the official Run the Jewels website.
