Since their debut mixtape as Run the Jewels in 2013, rappers Killer Mike and El-P have been pretty consistent about releasing new music on a regular basis. Run the Jewels 2, for instance, came out just a year after the first one, with the cat-sound-remix album Meow the Jewels following last year. On Monday, the two-year anniversary of Run the Jewels 2, the duo released the first single from their upcoming threequel, RTJ3: “Talk To Me.” 

In classic Run the Jewels fashion, “Talk To Me” features an ethereal, clanging beat from El-P and rapid-fire verses from both top-shelf rappers. Once again, the fun with listening to Run the Jewels is listening to both rappers challenge and raise each other’s game; Killer Mike’s “hit Uber and maneuver out the area, rhyme animal, pitbull terrier, rap terrorist terrorize and tear up” is quickly matched by El-P’s “I got firm clutch, drippin’ with pus, I might ghost-ride the tank, take her out of the bank.”

Listen to “Talk To Me” below. Run the Jewels 3 does not have a set release date yet.
