Back with a dosage of audible aggression is Run The Jewels, who debuts “Close Your Eyes (And Count To F*ck),” featuring Rage Against The Machine frontman Zack De La Rocha.
The third single from El-P and Killer Mike’s upcoming RTJ2 album comes packed with all sorts of politically charged verbiage. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. The Atlanta arm of the rap duo leads a lyrical uprising, during which he questions when gang members and prison inmates alike will lead an uprising against police and correctional officers, respectively. De La Rocha enters the fold towards the end of the record with an abrasive verse to close the show.
We need to be present the first time this record is performed live.
RTJ2 releases on October 27 via Mass Appeal Records. Stream “Close Your Eyes (And Count To F*ck)” below.
