Over the weekend, El-P also announced via Instagram that RTJ4 will be "made available for FREE for ANYONE who wants some music. for me this is the only way i really know how to contribute to the human struggle and experience beyond just trying to be kind and aware and grow. it’s the only weapon i’m truly trained in and i’m grateful to have it. so no more talk from me until the music drops . i love y’all be safe don’t fall for the fuck shit and protect each other and your spirits from those that would divide and hurt you."

Last Friday (29 May) Killer Mike delivered an emotional speech directed at George Floyd protestors in Atlanta.

Run The Jewels' RTJ4 album lands Friday (5 June), and is available to pre-order now.
