Run The Jewels' new music video is a psychedelic odyssey starring Rick and Morty

Today Adult Swim announced their very own festival this October, but they did so in a manner slightly more interesting than watching paint dry, with a full new Run The Jewels music video starring Rick And Morty’s titular duo.

Run The Jewels to open for Lorde on her 2018 tour

Lorde announced a lengthy tour in support of her new album Melodrama way back in June, but if tracks like “Green Light” and old hits like “Royals” aren’t enough to get you out of the house and over to your local concert venue, the reveal of Lorde’s tour openers might change that.

El-P’s Fantastic Damage turns 15 today—too bad you can’t find it anywhere

Today marks the 15th anniversary of El-P’s debut record Fantastic Damage, a bombed-out, paranoid masterpiece of underground hip-hop.

Killer Mike doesn’t blame Kanye West for wanting to meet Trump

One of the stranger stories to emerge from the 2016 election results was Kanye West’s declaration that he would have voted for Donald Trump, had he voted at all.

Run The Jewels and Japandroids lead the charge of January’s new music releases

Every Friday, dozens of new records are released into the wild. Some make big splashes, and others sink almost immediately.

Run The Jewels goes for gold with new track and artwork

Following up on some music to soothe the soul, Run The Jewels has gone back to doing what it does best: rapping about unicorn horns for dicks.

Run The Jewels release new track to help people through the pain

Accompanied by a note explaining that it’s for “everyone who is hurting or scared right now,” rap duo Run The Jewels has released a new song onto the internet today. “2100” features work from Run The Jewels 2 contributor Boots, and opens with Killer Mike asking an open wound of a question: “How long ’til the hate that…

Zack De La Rocha releases El-P-produced track, “Digging For Windows”

You might be wondering what Zack De La Rocha has been up to while the rest of his old band, Rage Against The Machine, tours and records as Prophets Of Rage with Chuck D and one of the guys from Cypress Hill. Apparently, he’s been directing his visceral indignation into his first solo album, Stereogum reports. The…
