if the first album was the supernova, ‘rtj2’ is the sound of run the jewels’ universe forming, proving that mike & el-p's one-off can be a going, & ever growing, concern.

this sophomore effort keeps the slanted spirit of the original, as mixing the attitude of nwa. with the weirdness of adult swim is both comfortable & fertile ground for the duo. the ‘album’ does try harder in the ‘serious’ department. paranoid androids like ‘blockbuster night, pt. 1’ benefit, as if run-dmc embraced el-p's compressed beatmaking & dropped the f-bomb whenever possible. ‘all due respect’ with travis barker enters death grips' territory with punk, techno, & vicious rhymes all crawling up the spine, but this rebel music can still come with a smirk, as a stuttering zach de la rocha offers the infectious & weird hook on album highlight ‘close your eyes (& count to fuck)’.
