Killer Mike spent his summer essentially campaigning as the Vice President for Bernie Sanders. Once that dream was dashed, Killer Mike reunited with his longtime running mate El-P to work on some new legislation: Run The Jewels 3. RTJ3 is their third studio album (fourth if you count their feline-themed Meow The Jewels), and it’s their best album yet. Killer Mike and El-P showcase the confidence and cohesion that forms after three years working together on an album of tightly wound bangers. The beats have never sounded better from El-P, and the political fire from Killer Mike has never been more essential.
