Featuring Danny Brown, BOOTS, Trina and more.
The third installment of Jamie and Mike’s Run The Jewels project will arrive January 13, 2017. To kick off the campaign the two show off the artwork, tracklist and drop a new single from the project, “Legend Has It”. Coming in at 14 tracks, RTJ3 picks up with RTJ2 left off. This time around the artwork has a few noticeable changes, which they explain below.
For us, the RTJ1 hands were about ‘taking what’s yours’ – your world, your life, your attitude. The RTJ2 hands were wrapped in bandages, signifying injury and healing, which for us represented the growth in ideas and tone of that album. For RTJ3 the bandages are off, the chain is gone and the hands have been transformed into gold. For us this represents the idea that there is nothing to take that exists outside of yourself. You are the jewel.
