Run The Jewels - Run The Jewels 2
This is the second album from “Run the Jewels” which is Killer Mike and El-P’s duo.
The album is dark, and heavy. It’s got an old-school melodic hardcore feel to it. This is their second album as a duo, and as far as I’m concerned, this does as well if not better than their first did. I prefer this one. This thing is heavy and the lyrics are blunt and hit hard.
It also feels in-depth. It has a lot of layers to it, and it shows. It doesn’t feel like something that was slapped together, but it’s also seamless. It really sounds like they did some creative new stuff while still sticking to this hardcore old-school vibe. It’s very entertaining and this is probably one of the better albums I’ve heard in a good while. Definitely worth a listen.
