El-P - one half of rap duo Run The Jewels - has given an update on their Run The Jewels 4 album, saying it's "hard as fuck".

The last we heard about the duo's follow up to 2016's Run The Jewels 3 was back in December 2018, when El-P said "it’s not even close to done".

Nearly a year on, and El-P has revealed a bit more about Run The Jewels 4. A fan asked how far along the duo are on their new album on Twitter last week, to which El-P replied, "very far along but not mixed/done yet plus gotta clear samples and shit so prolly out earlyish next year realistically. the good news is it’s hard as fuck."

The same day El-P shared some lyrics from one of their new songs, "you’d think the universe forgot us the way the accursed pitch their product... as though our spirits not a fire that can’t be snuffed or turned to dollars"- RTJ4."

In a separate tweet, El-P added, "i can also say at this point RTJ4 is about 11 jams, it’s under 40 minutes and not a second is wasted ; ). hopefully that helps tide the curious over for a minute while we finish up. big thanks to everyone waiting."

Although it's nearly been three years since Run The Jewels dropped Run The Jewels 3, the duo did team up with Danny Brown on "3 Tearz" in October for Brown's uknowhatimsayin¿ album.
