Published Oct 13, 2014Rap superheroes El-P and Killer Mike have once again joined forces as Run the Jewels, and will soon unleash their highly anticipated sophomore set RTJ2. Before they drop the full thing, however, the duo have shared a new single.
As previously reported, "Close Your Eyes (and Count to Fuck)" is the album track that features Rage Against the Machine frontman Zach de la Rocha. Hardly a funked-up rap-metal jam, however, the song's built on a mid-tempo beat, a cut-up vocal sample and plenty of fuzz bass. It's a solid backdrop for all three artists to let loose some politically charged rap.
Listen to "Close Your Eyes (and Count to Fuck)" below. RTJ2 is set to arrive on October 28 via Mass Appeal Records.
