El-P and Killer Mike’s joint LP, Run The Jewels, has been getting a lot of love (and deservedly so) on many end-of-year lists across the music Internets. Today we’re getting to treated to a late Christmas present from the duo: a new track called “Pew Pew Pew.” It’s another dose of gut-punching, grown man hip-hop, and even features some crazy scratches courtesy of veteran turntablist DJ Qbert.
Even though El-P didn’t want people to hear this just yet, the track will wind up on the European edition of Run The Jewels, which includes two more bonus tracks: a remix of “Sea Legs” by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, and a remix of “36″ Chain” by Blue Sky Black Death. The deluxe edition hits iTunes on Jan. 13.
