Run the Jewels have never been bound by the limitations of grey lines separating genres of music, which has allowed their alternative take on hip hop to take on new collaborative challenges heading into their anticipated ‘RTJ4’ album. due out June 5. This collection of songs is confirmed from AltPress to feature Rage Against the Machine’s Zach De Le Rocha, Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, and pop mastermind Pharrell Williams.
Killer Mike and EL-P rocked the Aragon with QOTSA for 101WKQX’s Nights We Stole Christmas in 2017. It was incredible to say the least, and it sold out super fast. Objectively, you would think this bumping aggressive rap duo would not draw an aligned vibe with the chugging rock grooves fo Homme and company, but it all fit together like a glove. You can relive it here with stage photos and more.
Zack de la Rocha has joined RTJ on their track “Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)” and just appeared in their video for “Oooh LA LA.” RTJ was scheduled to tour with RATM and come to Chicago but that has been postponed to July 2021.
