just run em....,
This review is from: Run The Jewels (Audio CD)
After teaming up on killer mikes most excellent 2012 album R.A.P. music, produced and guested on by EL-P, the duo decided to team up again and have a crack at a full length album together.
To anyone who was a fan of ' R.A.P. music' or EL's 'cancer4cure' will find themselves in familiar territory with this record. Mikes trademark southeren drawl, laced with wit, hidden barbs and insight on top of EL's dystopian, hellish, futuristic beats.
El raps a hell of a lot on this record too, taking the lead on many songs and doing a damn fine job of it. Arguably does some of the best vocals he's done on any of his previous records to date, while killer mike, the more accomplished rapper overall you would say, seems happier to notch it down a little and let his buddy hit the big lines. Big boi from outcast makes a guest appearance on the track 'bannana clipper'.
Its an aggresive, hard rap album. A synth, big beat driven nightmare. Not as tunefull as 'R.A.P.' music but just as expertly crafted by a duo who are the perfect for one another. Think of a post apocalyptic eric b and rakim.
Originally released as a free mp3 download via foolsgold records back in summer its now avaliable to buy on cd if you missed the mp3 or, like me, stuck in the past and still like having actual cds.
