El-P and Killer Mike's Run the Jewels album was undoubtedly one of the best projects of 2013, so getting a snippet of a new song is a welcomed surprise this week. Along with the song teaser, El-P shared on his Twitter feed that Run the Jewels 2 is just one day away from being fully mixed, which suggests that we should be getting the album soon.
If the snippet for "Blockbuster Night Part 1" is any indication of the upcoming project, it should get fans excited because it sounds pretty damn spectacular based off the 1:40 minute preview. Also included in the influx of news from the duo are the official dates and stops for their upcoming tour, which kicks off this week and runs through the end of August.
