We've heard for months that RTJ3, the new album from Killer Mike and El-P as their duo Run the Jewels was due out in early 2017. Nobody could have guessed, however, that it would come out so early in 2017 that it would bleed into 2016.

That's right, RTJ3 is out and it features Danny Brown, BOOTS, Trina and Kamasi Washington. It also dropped with a funny Portlandia sketch featuring El-P and Killer Mike being pitched different ways to drop the album. Thankfully, they've by-passed the armageddon/feces-related ideas for a surprise free download/streaming availability.

Stream the album below or visit the RTJ site here for download/purchasing options.
