Run The Jewels premiere the first single from RTJ3

El-P and Killer Mike unleash "Talk To Me" from their hotly anticipated third album, due in 2017

Run The Jewels – aka Killer Mike and El-P – have released the first track from their forthcoming third album. “Talk To Me” is available to download and stream from Adult Swim as part of their ongoing singles program.

The duo formed shortly after El-P produced Killer Mike's 2012 album R.A.P. Music. To date they have released two acclaimed albums and the Meow The Jewels remix collection – on which a variety of producers recreated the second album using only cat sounds. More recently RTJ provided raps for “Nobody Speak”, a track on DJ Shadow's The Mountain Will Fall.

RTJ3 is set for release next year via Mass Appeal
