This new single is skull-crushingly aggressive.

Run the Jewels have returned to snap elbows and stomp kneecaps with the grimy-as-ever "Talk to Me."

As per usual, it's El-P and Killer Mike exchanging brutal potent lyrics over El's production, and in these times of absolute frustration, it's never been more welcome.

"Talk to Me" arrives as part of Adult Swim's singles series, but Killer Mike's signature sarcastic bellowing promises us that RTJ3 is on the horizon.

A full album, the duo's first in two years, is a welcome bit of news as the last we heard from Run the Jewels was their song from the new Gears of War video game, where both Mike and El are playable characters.
