DOWNLOAD MP3: Run The Jewels – Let’s Go (The Royal We)
Killer Mike and El-P are kindred spirits, despite hailing from disparate musical cloths. While El originally garnered acclaim through his storied ascent in the New York underground scene, Mike was rubbing shoulders with Big Boi and Andre 3000, daydreaming about cleavage. Yet somehow, their paths crossed, and they proceeded to forge an appropriately symbiotic relationship. Today, with their fourth album in the preparatory stages, Jaime and Mike have taken to Beats 1 to premiere their new single “Let’s Go (The Royal We)”, which appears in the divisive Venom flick.
“My man Nate in high school introduced me to the Venom character, and I’ve loved it ever since,” explains Mike. “Just the duality of trying to do righteous, and this rogue is just fighting with you from the inside. I thought it was a perfect match up with the Run The Jewels spirit, so the record turned out dope.” He proceeds to marvel at El-P’s work ethic, who provides ample proof that men can indeed multitask when the challenge is put upon them.
