Published Nov 09, 2016Whether using their keyboards or air time, plenty of artists weighed in on Donald Trump beating out Hillary Clinton for the presidency of the United States last night (November 8). Looking to comfort those who are worried about the impending #Trumpocalypse, Run the Jewels have delivered new track "2100."
Taking to Twitter this evening, El-P shared the track "for our friends. for our family. for everyone who is hurting or scared right now." Killer Mike followed suit, saying the track came "With love from #RTJ/#RTJ3 something to get you thru." A short note from El-P revealed that both he and Killer Mike hadn't planned on releasing the song yet, though "it feels right, now."
"It's about fear and its about love and its about wanting more for all of us," the note continued. "Its called '2100.' We hope it finds you well."
The song sees El-P and Killer Mike team up once more with Boots, who can be heard on the hook. It was produced by El-P, featuring co-production by Little Shalimar and Wilder Zoby. The song's artwork, which can be seen above, was taken by Perfect Pussy's Meredith Graves.
