El-P and Killer Mike are Run The Jewels. They’ve announced a new record called RTJ3 out on January 13th. Damn, January 2017 is looking stacked for new music.

The artwork for the new record is above. RTJ went back to the pistol and fist and say this about the art: “For us, the RTJ1 hands were about ‘taking what’s yours’ – your world, your life, your attitude. The RTJ2 hands were wrapped in bandages, signifying injury and healing, which for us represented the growth in ideas and tone of that album. For RTJ3 the bandages are off, the chain is gone and the hands have been transformed into gold. For us this represents the idea that there is nothing to take that exists outside of yourself. You are the jewel.”

New record, so much hype, and a tour! They’ll be in the Pacific Northwest for a series of sold out shows in February.

Fight for the cause graphics
Alright Music Blogger Nation….

I need to choose my entrance song for Fight 4 The Cause. On November 22nd (BUY tickets today!), I will be fighting in my first ever boxing match. All the fighters need a jam and here is what I’m thinking.  I’ll go with whatever song gets the most votes as I love them all. I believe I get one minute or one minute 30 of the song.

Number 1. Run The Jewels – “Blockbuster Night Part 1” (hit go right off the hop)

Number 2. Explosions in the Sky – “Your Hand in Mine” (not sure where I’ll pick it up)

Number 3. Cursive – “Staying Alive” (probably pick it up at 1:40)

Please help me pick a song in the comment section. Thank you for taking the time and having a part in the journey!

Go with yourself.
