June 18 promises to be a great day for Hip-Hop, but to be truthful, the project we cannot wait to hear releases a week later from Killer Mike and El-P. Operating under the ill moniker Run The Jewels, the pair are releasing a self-titled project via Fool’s Gold.

As if our anticipation wasn’t high enough, Killer Kill from Adamsville and El-Producto return today with the official artwork and tracklist for the project. Fans can expect the full effort June 26.

The cover features two zombie hands juxing someone for a dookie rope chain. We’re guessing that this is the visual representation of the aggressive tunes the two have conjured up.

“Get It” and “Banana Clipper” were the first tracks to be liberated from the fold. Both measured up to expectations. The killer combination of Mike and El-P rhyming over the latter’s production has continuously been utterly insane.

As part of today’s announcement, Run The Jewels also provide a dirty version of their third release “36” Chain.” Hear that below and see information on their upcoming 29-city tour here.
