When Killer Mike enlisted El-P to take over the production on his 2012 album, R.A.P. Music, hip hop was not fully prepared for what that collaboration would come to beget.  Soon, the duo birthed Run the Jewels and really fucked folks’ heads up.  Their self-titled debut was an immediate favorite amongst critics and fans of the rappers.  So, it’s no surprise that their follow-up was highly anticipated.  Behold, Run the Jewels 2.  Originally set to drop on October 27, the early leak had the Internet going wild.  And rightfully so.  This project is quintessential hip hop: raw lyrics, experimental production, and varying concepts.  What I dig most about this album is the range of the topics and unexpected but appropriate collaborations.  Folks like Gangsta Boo, Travis Barker, and Rage Against The Machine’s Zack de la Rocha all show up and show out.  Audio Gumbo’s favorite tracks: Blockbuster Night Part 1, Angel Duster and Love Again (Akinyele Back).
