Run the Jewels continue to dish out the goods, returning today with a brand new song called “Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)”. Unlike their week-old LP Meow the Jewels, El-P and Killer Mike’s latest banger was made sans the assistance of cat meows. Rather, it features scorching, blown-out samples on par with those found on their sophomore LP RTJ2. Listen below.
As its name suggests, “Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)” serves as the title track to a new documentary called Rubble Kings, which chronicles the rise of hip-hop amid gang-ruled New York City in the 1960s and 70s. The track is also part of Adult Swims’s 2015 Singles Program.
