Run The Jewels surprise released their new album “RTJ4” today, June 03rd—days ahead of its planned June 05th release. Speaking of the decision to drop the album ahead of schedule, they commented:

“Fuck it, why wait. The world is infested with bullshit so here’s something raw to listen to while you deal with it all. We hope it brings you some joy. Stay safe and hopeful out there and thank you for giving 2 friends the chance to be heard and do what they love.

With sincere love and gratitude,

Jaime + Mike

The album is available now via runthejewels.com as part of a pay what you want pricing model with all proceeds to benefit the Mass Defense Program. Had the COVID-19 pandemic not postponed their original plans, the acclaimed hip hop duo would currently be out opening for Rage Against The Machine throughout the year. That tour will now be taking place next summer

You can still hear both artists together right now in a roundabout way though, as Rage Against The Machine frontman Zack de la Rocha once again cameos on this latest album, guesting on the track “Ju$t” alonside Pharrell Williams. Also notable among the guests is Queens Of The Stone Age linchpin Josh Homme, who lends his talents to “Pulling The Pin” along with Mavis Staples.

Zack de la Rocha of course has a long history with Run The Jewels that includes numerous cameos and live appearances over the years. If you missed it, he also made a brief cameo in Run The Jewel‘s recent video for their single “Oooo LA LA“.
