Killer Mike and El-P Share Updates on ‘Run the Jewels 3′ Album
El-P has been releasing bits and pieces of the upcoming Run the Jewels 3 project and took to Instagram once again to tease the duo's hardcore fan base with another song snippet. The rapper/producer posted a quick three-second clip on his Instagram page that features a Killer Mike bar over a looped up instrumental. El-P is understandably playing things close to the chest, but it appears we'll be getting new RTJ music soon.
Along with the Instagram post, El-P also tweeted that the album is halfway done and should be out in 2016. "Pleased to report #RTJ3 is halfway done. The goal of a 2016 release is achievable and a safer, more profitable global economy in our grasp. I would also like to report that Killer Mike and myself can apparently smoke almost a half pound of weed in 2 weeks, shocking even myself," he added.
He also tweeted that new Run the Jewels music will be performed at April's Coachella festival. "Trying to figure out which RTJ3 jam to premier at Coachella. Oh yes. Yes we are," wrote El Producto.
Coachella will be held in Indio, Calif. on the weekends of April 15-17 and April 22-24. Along with RTJ, Joey Bada$$, Ice Cube, A$AP Rocky, Vince Staples, DJ Mustard and more will hit the festival stage.
