Run The Jewels has reimagined their hit album RTJ4 through the prism of Latin America, featuring artists from 10 LATAM countries - producers, rappers, singers, musicians, programmers – who all participated in the creation of this hybrid, groundbreaking, and forward-facing project.
Curated and co-executive produced by El-Producto and Nick Hook, RTJ CU4TRO is an album authentically unique, engaging, diverse and rewarding.
Special guest artists on RTJ CU4TRO include Akapellah, Apache, Baco Exo do Blues, Bomba Estereo, Danny Brasco, Iggor Cavalera, Henry D'Arhenay, Orestes, Gomez, El Individuo, Last Jeronimo, Lido Pimienta, Mas Aya, Mexican Institute Of Sound, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Pawmps, Sarah La Morena, Santa Fe Klan, Son Rompe, Pera, Toy Selectah, Adrian Terrazas-Gonzalez, TROOKO, Yoga Fire ... and more.
Run the Jewels are hip-hop's preeminent anti-oppressor, anti-sucker, anti-wack-shit menace: the party band for the revolution or the apocalypse, whichever comes first. A collaboration between two veteran rhyme-slayers — Brooklyn's El-P and Atlanta's Killer Mike — Run the Jewels have gone from a whim-driven underground rap project to a worldwide sensation, headlining festivals, topping critics polls, nabbing Grammy nominations, soundtracking movie trailers and striking fear in any group unfortunate enough to follow them on a concert stage.
Mixing the industrial grime of New York City with the vibrant bounce of the dirty South, Run the Jewels forge hip-hop's future while adhering to the core tenets of its bedrock: gymnastic displays of skills, incendiary political rhetoric, furious scratch solos, merciless braggadocio, battle-honed assholery, R-rated punchlines and a back-and-forth that brings the interplay of the shell-toe Adidas era screaming into our contemporary nightmare.
