Killer Mike and El-P have been teasing their next record as Run the Jewels extensively online, and now it's finally been officially announced - RTJ2 will be out in October via Nas's label Mass Appeal. Our first taste is "Blockbuster Night Pt. 1," which the guys previewed a few weeks ago - now you can sample the whole track, below. As we could tell from that minute-long taster, it's great, with both guys going hard over a menacing, intense beat, trading off social critique and braggadocio alike (my favorite line is courtesy Mike: "my fist to your face is fuckin' Folgers"). Check it out - you'll be able to pick up RTJ2 in a record store starting October 28th.
