Listen: Run The Jewels - Rubble King Theme (Dynamite)
Runnin’ thru The Bronx with their woes.
Run The Jewels have a pretty good claim as the most prolific hip hop act going around right now. In the last 12 months they have released instant classic RTJ2, ‘meowed’ the jewels and have been putting serious strides into RTJ3. Not taking a moment to rest on their laurels, the pair have just dropped a new original, Dynamite, an ode to El-P’s hometown New York. The track headlines a soundtrack to new doco Rubble Kings, which chronicles rampant gang culture in the Bronx, that drove the city to the brink of war in the mid-70’s but also planted the seeds of hip hop culture, which was the city’s unlikely saviour. The angry undertaking of Dynamite reflects the anarchy of the time, as well as being a beat that fits neatly on the current RTJ roster.
