Run The Jewels could be forgiven if they wanted to take some time off to support presidential candidate Bernie Sanders or rest on their cat-fur-coated laurels. However, it seems there are too many f*ckboys in the world for Killer Mike and El-P to take an honest break. The duo are hard at work on Run The Jewels 3, and they shared a preview of the new album on Instagram last night.
Admittedly, it’s a small snippet of a new track that’s sort of hard to decipher. But when you make albums as good as the ones that Run The Jewels makes, any little morsel is cause for celebration.
The ping-ponging Beat is less substantial sounding than the one El-P shared last month. Still, fans were quick to praise the beat and make comparisons, with this Instagram user hitting the nail on the head.
For the uninitiated, H.E.L.P.eR is the Venture family’s robot on the Adult Swim show The Venture Bros. And this RTJ beat does sound remarkably similar to the one he lays down.

In addition to new music, the rappers released a Valentine’s Day-themed collection of RTJ merch. The “Love Again” collection includes a duvet, pillows, clothing and coffee mugs.
The duo seem to be keeping up with the promise they made during an interview with UPROXX. El-P said that 2016 would see the group hunkering down and committing their energy to making a new album.
“Once we’re done with this tour this year, we’re gone. We’re disappearing. We will emerge with either a great album, or a horrible mistake.”
It’s looking good so far.
