run the jewels 2

El-P and Killer Mike decided to drop Run The Jewels 2 early — and for free! — last Friday after it leaked online, and it’s pretty much all we’ve been listening to these past few days. With the album officially in stores today, here’s a stream of the scrunch face-inducing bonus track, “Blockbuster Night Pt 2,” featuring Queens MC Despot and RATKING’s Wiki.

Also, El-P and Killer Mike have introduced Tag The Jewels, a global graffiti project which saw 30 street artists across six continents add their own flavor to the RTJ cover, and it’s pretty awesome. Check out a few of our favorites below.

Purchase Run The Jewels 2 on iTunes and stay tuned for their Halloween performance on The Late Show With David Letterman this Friday (October 31).
