After serving fans their first two singles "Talk to Me" and "2100," Run The Jewels keeps the momentum going with their latest offering, "Legend Has It."
Several months ago, the rap collective released a small sample of their new record, with El-P's, um, poignant line "I got a unicorn horn for a c-ck", proving to be the standout lyric from their teaser. Now, fans can indulge in the group's third single until the release of their new album RTJ3 hits the shelves Jan. 27.
In addition to their gleaming new record, Run The Jewels also gifted their listeners with a glimpse of their new LP's artwork. The highly touted rap duo returns with a golden version of their signature hands serving as the the focus for their third album cover. Here's what Jaime and Mikey had to say about their new cover art for RTJ3.
"For us, the RTJ1 hands were about 'taking what's yours': your world, your life, your attitude. The RTJ2 hands were wrapped in bandages, signifying injury and healing, which for us represented the growth in ideas and tone of that album. For RTJ3 the bandages are off, the chain is gone and the hands have been transformed into gold. For us this represents the idea that there is nothing to take that exists outside of yourself. You are the jewel."
