Video: Run The Jewels 36″ Chain Music Video (featuring Andrew WK)

Run The Jewels by Run The Jewels (EL-P + Killer Mike) is a full album available as a free download from their label Fool’s Gold Records. It’s old school hip-hop and it’s fun.

You merely have to visit the Fool’s Gold Records website, and mindlessly punch in your email address. It’s that fucking simple.

Originally released on 26 June 2013, Run The Jewels is doing very well on the Metacritic.com rankings (a score of 85 to be precise). What does that mean? It means it’s enjoyed by critics and fans alike, and for a free bloody album you should be so damn lucky!

For those of you with an insatiable desire for all things physical, you can purchase the album on vinyl or CD to support the rappers if you have a spare US$12-$20.

Spin Run The Jewels on Soundcloud if you need a sneak peek before you advise anyone of your geeky email address:

EL-P and Killer Mike are currently touring as Run The Jewels so you better get your arse off the couch and see them together before they disband.
