When Killer Mike and El-P started talking about their second album as Run The Jewels back in April, they revealed that they had been in the studio with Travis Barker and Rage Against The Machine frontman Zack De La Rocha. Now, in advance of the RTJII’s October 28 release date via Mass Appeal, they’ve shared the De La Rocha collaboration, a furious, politically charged trunk-rattler with the wonderful title “Close Your Eyes (And Count To F*ck).”
Listen to the raw new track below, and listen to previously released “Oh My Darling Don’t Cry” here and “Blockbuster Night Part 1” here. There is also the whole “Meow The Jewels” Kickstarter to get RTJII re-recorded with cat sounds and give the money to charity in the works. If you’re incredibly confused right now, read about Meow The Jewels here.
