The 14-track LP (stream it below) is RTJ at their most incendiary, featuring guest appearances by Danny Brown, Kamasi Washington, and Zack de la Rocha, who has become a regular RTJ collaborator/instigator. 

Here’s what Killer Mike and El-P, who’re “gearing” up for a world tour in ’17, had to say about RTJ3, the gift that keeps on giving on a Facebook post:

its a christmas fucking miracle. 

for our jewel runners worldwide,

fuck it. we couldn’t help ourselves.  it just feels right.  after a crazy fucking year and with a full tour about to set off we asked ourselves what we were waiting for… and we just couldn’t come up with a great answer.  you’ve been with us since we started this thing and its made such a huge difference in our lives to have your energy and love.  thank you.  so as a gift to all of you who have allowed us to continue to do what we love: RTJ3.  we busted our asses on this one and we think we made something special this round.  grab it for free, buy it on any of the digital platforms you like or stream it.  physical copies will still be dropping in January as announced but until then: enjoy and we will see you on the road!
