El-P took to Instagram on Sunday to remind the world that the bombastic rap duo’s third act is underway. “RTJ3 is just getting started,” he posted to Instagram with an accompanying short, roving clip of a dark studio with characteristic booming, percussive beat blaring out of the speakers.
El-P last previewed the record back in May, at a high point of Run the Jewels’ 2015 tour. He added on Twitter that he’s “a subscriber to the ‘make the record great no matter how long it takes’ philosophy.” The first two Run the Jewels records were certifiably great, and were released within a year of one another, so here’s to hoping the duo will be able to churn out an equally dazzling follow-up to the follow-up by the end of 2016.
And for the lovers of Run the Jewels’s feline remix album, sorry to disappoint, but the new clip is conspicuously meowless.
