Run the Jewels Drop "Ooh LA LA" from 'RTJ4'

BY Brock ThiessenPublished Mar 25, 2020

Run the Jewels are breaking off another piece of their upcoming album Run the Jewels 4. This time, it's a song called "Ooh LA LA."

The track features DJ Premier and Greg Nice and comes in the wake of the recently shared "The Yankee and the Brave." Doubling down on the DJ Premier presence, "Ooh LA LA" even samples Gang Starr's "Dwyck."

"There's not a lot of classic undermined golden age material that hasn't been turned into a jam... and I've been plotting on this for probably the last three albums," El-P told Apple Music's Zane Lowe. "We don't intentionally do old-school music. But our influences and who we are come from an era that is very real."

El-P went on to explain that this actually marks the first time RTJ have used a sample.

"I'm going to be very honest with you Zane, this is the first one we could afford," El-P joked.

Hear "Ooh LA LA" below.

As previously reported, Run the Jewels had planned tour with Rage Against the Machine, but the trek was postponed due to the coronavirus.

So far, there is no word on when we'll actually see the release of Run the Jewels 4.
