Due to an overwhelming high demand, RTJ are re-issuing a physical version of their now-classic first album, Run The Jewels, for the first time since 2013. CD and Vinyl releases will include a cool new iron-on Run The Jewels patch. This album was named Pitchfork's "Best New Music" upon release and features Big Boi, Prince Paul and Until the Ribbon Breaks. Run The Jewels released their sophomore album Run The Jewels 2 in October 2014, which went onto universal critical acclaim. The album went on to receive multiple year end accolades including: 2014's #1 Album of the Year (Pitchfork, Stereogum, USAToday, Complex, London Evening Standard, etc), Album of the Year List (Billboard, Consequence of Sound, Rolling Stone, NME, NPR, Entertainment Weekly, Spin, Newsweek, etc), Song of the Year List (Spin, NME, Time, etc) and more! T heir press coverage has extended to far beyond just music publications, with features running in Slate, Gizmodo, Fast Company, CNN, US Weekly, Huffington post, etc. Since the album release, the duo has gone to finish a nearly sold out 45+ date World Tour. Furthermore, a kickstarter project based off of remixing the album with cat sounds, entitled "Meow the Jewels" went viral and raised over $65,000; this project is set to release later this summer.
