El-P Just Delivered The 'Run The Jewels 3' Update We've Been Waiting For
As far as 2016 releases are concerned (with the obvious exception of Frank Ocean’s Blonde) Killer Mike and El-P‘s third installment of Run The Jewels remains one of the year’s most anxiously-anticipated. Every once in awhile El-P will chime in with a little chirps on how the album is coming along or tease a clip on Instagram, but that’s only swelled the hunger for more of their barb-filled, politically-sharp genre smashing.
But it appears we won’t have to wait much longer, as El-P just delivered the update we’ve been waiting for via Twitter:
every word for #RTJ3 has now officially been recorded. the album is almost finished.

Now, that doesn’t mean that the album is ready to leave the cutting room floor; mixing and mastering are logical next steps. But it does seem that they’re on-schedule to deliver before the year’s out. So sound the alarm. New Run The Jewels will be here before you know it. Until then, revisit the second episode (of what he hope is a lifelong saga) on iTunes today. Suppose we can also expect their to be some interesting novelty items paired with the release a la Meow The Jewels. But time will tell, and so will they. Hold tight for more in the weeks and months ahead.
