On RTJ4's closing track, Killer Mike raps, "This is for the do-gooders that the no-gooders used and then abused / For the truth-tellers tied to the whipping post, left beaten, battered, bruised / For the ones whose body hung from a tree like a piece of strange fruit / Go hard, last words to the firing squad was, 'Fuck you too.'"
As previously reported, RTJ4 drops June 5 via Jewel Runners/RBC Records/BMG, and features collaborations with 2 Chainz, Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, Mavis Staples, Pharrell Williams, DJ Premier, Greg Nice, and Zack De La Rocha of Rage Against the Machine.
