Hey, everyone! RobBarracuda here, and it’s time to talk about the newest release from the Adult Swim Singles Program.
What would an AS Singles compilation be without Run The Jewels? The rap duo wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for members El-P and Killer Mike being introduced to each other by Jason DeMarco, and ever since then the two have been both a huge name in the current rap scene and an expected staple of these compilations. This year’s contribution is from the soundtrack of a documentary released this year called Rubble Kings, a film about gang violence in The Bronx during the 1970’s. The track is what you’d expect from a Run The Jewels track by now: incredible production (courtesy of Little Shalimar) and some furious lyrics and flow from El and Mike. The whole vibe of the song is just really incredible at how it conveys the imagery and feel of 70’s gang violence, and it’s another banger track from one of modern rap’s best acts. The song can be streamed down below, and of course you can download it and the other singles right here. Let us know what you think of the song in the comments down below, and I’ll see you next week for the final week of the 2015 Adult Swim Singles Program.
Run The Jewels premiered an animated music video for “Rubble Kings Theme” this week, which also aired on Toonami during Naruto Shippuden. The video, appropriately inspired by the Rubble Kings documentary the song appears in, follows a woman who gets dragged into a violent gang fight, of which she happens to be a part of one of the warring factions.
