Before it becomes political, it must be noted that this is one of those albums, for the most popular music playback devices are simply too small. All the white Airpods, the Bluetooth-boxes, clockwork, even the oversized Noise-Cancelling headphones will sound as if you tried to channel Jericho seven Schofare through a Kazoo. The way to "RTJ4", the fourth Album of American East coast Rap Duo "Run The Jewels" (RTJ) is rhymed, is designed for very large force, for the audible impact of a hammer; an angry indictment, which cools in some Places, so casual, and leaning back and to be disciplined is to be delivered, as Woe to the fury on a bass-worn snow storm through the bone-chilling membrane of the, hopefully, relentlessly loud untwisted speaker.
As the European white bread, it is pointless to do so, as you understand on an emotional level, a little of this poet visualized the anger that breaks out in America since the murder of George Floyd by a white police officer in railway. But with the worldwide free release of the album will also be invited to listen – and then perhaps at least an idea of it all to have what grenades in the heart of the rappers Killer Mike and El-P has planted, the sapwood, as it is in the 10. Track "Pulling the Pin" means "they" (we?) hold in your hands. Nevertheless, Killer Mike, the son of a policeman said it, recently in tears of anger in a public protest speech in Atlanta, he was in the face of violence against Black people are "mad as hell", but it was his duty to remind us all, not out of anger, the own house to burn down.But to fix it so that it "could be a place of refuge". It was now time to give unpopular politicians at the ballot box – and, although he had seen the whole world in flames because he was so sick to see black people die, "like a Zebra in a lion's mouth, while everybody's watching".
where Rap comes from and where it transplant always
wanted to on a musical level, RTJ make it clear, what it could also go: The political roots of their art with the craft, the technique and the Knowledge of today into the future. Here you can listen where Rap comes from and where he always wanted to; as a music of resistance, the die, if you drown in money or Tony-Montana-attitude to the Pose. In the eleven songs on the full almost something of a history of Rap's Evolution runs. Is reduced first, without a lot of Sample or Trap bells and whistles, and percussion, Cuts, and raw voice, as in "the Yankee and the Brave (Ep.4)", with a clear message: "We don't mean no harm but we truly mean all the disrespect his."
In "Ooh La La" follows with a Sample of "DWYCK" by Gang Starr & Nice & Smooth ("Hard to Earn", 1994), the greeting to the Hip-Hop of the early nineties, a time in which the DJs, as here, DJ Premier, Tracks with the rhythmic Scratching of the needle on black Vinyl (Scratching) refined. And so casual that here, sounds so clear at the same time formulated the realization that it is difficult to a order of the living together, that if your rules depend on the skin color. In a nod to the dark vigilante, Batman, it says: "I used to love Bruce but livin' my vida loca / Helped me understand I'm probably more of a Joker / When we usher in chaos / Just know that we did it smiling".Updated Date: 12 June 2020, 16:20
