Run the Jewels Announce RTJ4 Release Date, Tracklisting


Run the Jewels will release their fourth LP, RTJ4, on June 5 via Jewel Runners/BMG.

The 11-track album runs over 40 minutes and features a number of heavy-hitters, including Pharrell Williams, Josh Homme Mavis Staples, 2 Chainz, Zack de la Rocha and more.

RTJ4, which took two years to complete, was primarily recorded at Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, California and Electric Lady Studios in New York City. It’s the duo’s first record since 2016’s Run the Jewels 3.

Killer Mike and El-P previously released two songs from the project — “Ooh La La” (featuring DJ Premier and Greg Nice) and “Yankee and the Brave” — which appear as the record’s first two songs.

In addition to RTJ4, Run the Jewels are launching a cannabis line in collaboration with the founder of the legendary Cookies strain.

The album is available to pre-order here.
