Give a hand (or two) for the second installment of El-P and Killer Mike's Run The Jewels project. Run The Jewels II has rough and ready raps over some outrageous beats, with an awesome illustration of their familiar dismembered zombie hands on a red background. Some covers don't need a ton of embellishing or re-transformation to get the musical message across. Sticking with their logo and doing a subtle change worked perfectly for Run the Jewels 2.
