In honor of this year's Record Store Day, increasingly popular hip-hop duo Run The Jewels released a new 12" containing four tracks. Three of them—"Pew Pew Pew," "Love Again" (taken from Run The Jewels 2) and "Blockbuster Night Pt. 2" (a bonus tune from Run The Jewels 2)—have already been released, but the first song "Bust No Moves" is unreleased.
Killer Mike and El-P are in fine form with this new tune as they rap about weed (coincidentally or not on the eve of 4/20), riots, their own lyrical potency and much more. They go in over a brooding and measured instrumental with the hook provided by Arkansas rapper SL Jones.
El-P takes on other rappers with his first verse with vitriol.
You the Cadillac of "F*ck, I just suck at this rap shit"
I'm the Cadillac of "Suck it, I'm f*cking disastrous"
We the Hardy and Thom of the plant a bomb game
The lead 'em all to the mall and set 'em off game
You wanna hang like Hussein
Eat a mile of my sh*t then put your lips to my true brain

The pair has blown up in the past year or so, going from big names in the underground to an increasingly well-known name in music and to the general public. They have capitalized on that success with a pair of performances at Coachella the past two weekends that included guest appearances by the likes of Travis Barker, Gangsta Boo, Z-Trip and Zach de la Rocha. Killer Mike is doing all of this with a torn rotator cuff, which he suffered when fighting off a man who stormed the stage during a performance at SXSW.
