Two formerly underground artists who have been receiving a good amount of press lately have just released their album for free download. Killer Mike and El-P have been collaborating frequently since El produced Killer Mike's album "R.A.P. Music" last year, and now they are back as a duo of their own. Based on the material already released from this album, as well as both of the members' track records, you can expect this to be a pretty solid effort.
Head over to the Fool's Gold site for the download, just be prepared to enter your email.
Here's the first single off El-P & Killer Mike's joint project under the name Run The Jewels. It features close friend Big Boi and is primarily the two trading a fast set of rhymes until he comes in at the end. Dope track all the way around and an instant *Tibs Fav.

Emcees Killer Mike and El-P link up to form the duo Run The Jewels and their first collaborative effort "Get It" showcases the lyrical prowess of both artists as they pull a jack move on this beat. Anyone that knows me knows I'm just a good suburban kid that loves hard raps about criminal activity. The name of the group alone makes me wanna slide the black ski mask on....and go to Starbucks for a Hazelnut Macchiato.
