LISTEN: Run the Jewels Shares Greg Nice and DJ Premier Collab “Ooh LA LA”
It’s the second single from El-P and Killer Mike this week.
This past weekend Run the Jewels hopped on IG Live to surprise fans with “Yankee and the Brave (ep. 4),” the first single from the very much anticipated fourth RTJ album, RTJ4. As the airwaves continue to be flowing with good news—*touches earpiece* oh, wait—El and Mike are already dropping a second sample of what the record has in store.
“Ooh LA LA” sees the duo teaming up with Nice & Smooth’s Greg Nice and Gang Starr producer DJ Premier for an in-your-face collaboration blending the pair’s signature confrontational verses with a warbled piano sample and boom-bap beat. El-P kinda sings on the chorus—it truly has everything!
Stream the track below. Still no word on a release date for RTJ4, but with their tour on hold we can only hope that means more focus on the album cycle.
