Run The Jewels came through this past week with their brand new project RTJ 4 and it surely didn’t disappoint. The album is packed with dope features and contains some political bars that are exactly what we needed during this current political climate. On the track “JU$T,” Pharrell Williams and Zach De La Rocha from Rage Against the Machine join forces with El-P and Killer Mike for what is certainly a politically charged track.
The economy, slavery, education, and our leadership are on the table on this song and it makes for a minimalistic banger that really makes you think about the state of affairs in the United States and abroad. If you need a track that speaks truth to power, definitely give this one a spin.
Business time, I’m on mine, I be mindin’ mine (Make money)
Every time on my grind, I’m just tryna shine (Stay sunny)
Make a dollar, government, they want a dozen dimes (No cap)
The petty kind, might kill ya ’cause they see you shine (Stay strapped)
