Run the Jewels Respond to Donald Trump Presidential Victory With '2100': Listen

Billboard

In response to Donald Trump's presidential election victory on Tuesday, Run the Jewels have shared a new song called "2100" that Killer Mike and El-P said feels fitting of the current political climate. 

Sharing the BOOTS-featuring track to SoundCloud, the hip-hop duo posted a statement providing some context: "for our friends. for our family. for everyone who is hurting or scared right now. here is a song we wrote months ago. we werent planning on releasing it yet but… well it feels right, now. its about fear and its about love and its about wanting more for all of us. its called 2100. we hope it finds you well."

On the track that easily blends a hip-hop beat with acoustic guitar, Killer Mike opens things up, rapping, "How long before the hate that we hold/ Lead us to another Holocaust?"


Run the Jewels' third studio album, Run The Jewels 3, is expected to drop in the near future, with a tour announced to support its release starting Jan. 11 in Philadelphia and running until Feb. 25 in New York. 

Earlier Wednesday, Killer Mike appeared on The Real to discuss Tuesday's election results and offer his perspective on Donald Trump's victory.
