Run the Jewels Team Up with Travis Barker and Zach de la Rocha on New Album
Published Apr 22, 2014Run the Jewels, the collaborative project between El-P and Killer Mike, were met with enormous critical and commercial success for their self-titled debut last year. Thankfully, we won't have to wait too long for a follow-up as the duo are already working on their next album.
According to some Instagram photos from both artists, as well as their producer Daddy Kev, it's looking like the next one will have some high-profile collaborations. But they're not grabbing Kanye, Drake or Jay Z. Instead, these guests are some of the biggest names in alternative rock.
Self-titled Mag pointed to the above photo from Daddy Kev's Instagram, who said, "If these walls could talk." In it, you'll notice Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and, in the back, Rage Against the Machine frontman Zach de la Rocha (there are better shots of him below).
In addition, the duo's longtime friend and collaborator Yak Ballz is also in the studio with the group.
Details are scarce regarding Run the Jewels' sophomore album, but we'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
