Run The Jewels - Run The Jewels 3— Si Sharp -
The rise continues for Killer Mike and El P’s musical bromantic venture. RTJ3 might not be quite as urgent as its predecessor but it’s evidence that their formula still works. Mike’s flow is still one of the best in the game and El P’s production is getting busier and more reminiscent of his solo work and less like the (relatively) minimalist approach he took to R.A.P Music and RTJ1.
However the secret weapon is their chemistry as MCs which just gets more potent with each release- that Brooklyn accent and ATL drawl weaving through the album spitting wisdom and disses in equal measure. And best of all is that it feels like they’re just getting started and the muse of their friendship is far from dry.
