Track Of The Day: Run The Jewels - 'Talk To Me'

The awesome hip hop duo Run The Jewels are back with a thunderous new track, brimming with suspense and contention. The track is available as a free download HERE from the Adult Swim Singles Program 2016, a series of digital single releases from Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. Oddly, Cartoon Network played a big role in the existence of Run The Jewels, after CN network executive Jason DeMarco introduced New York-based Killer Mike to the Atlanta-based El-P. Afterwards, El-P produced Killer Mike's 'R.A.P. Music' album, and Killer Mike returned the favour by appearing on the El-P track 'Cancer 4 Cure'. The two rappers soon toured together, leading to the formation of RTJ. The greatest hip hop act of this era? Very possibly.

Following on from 2012's 'RTJ1' and 2013's 'RTJ2', the release date for their third full-length effort 'RTJ3' is set to be announced soon, and with the release of the excellent 'Talk To Me', that announcement shouldn't be far off...
