Stream Run the Jewels’ “Oh My Darling Don’t Cry”
As part of the excellent Adult Swim Singles series, Run The Jewels have released "Oh My Darling Don't Cry," which will appear on their forthcoming sophomore album RTJ2 along with previously released track "Blockbuster Night Part 1." Over a droning bass line and M.I.A.-style sliced-up vocal samples, Killer Mike and El-P declare, "I do two things, I rap and fuck," and proceed to do a whole lot of the former, as usual.
Then, for the last third of the song, things go bonkers and it becomes a glitchy meltdown, presumably because El-P purposely fried his hard drive.
Stream the track below, and head here for a free download. Oh, and see if you can spot the cameo from Police Academy's Michael Winslow.
RTJ2 drops October 27 as a free download (or you can buy physical copies), and the duo is hitting the road next month in support of the album. Check out the tour dates.
