    Run the Jewels Drop Concussive New Song "Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)"

    It's off the soundtrack to a movie that about the tumultuous birth of hip hop in NYC

    You can keep purring to Meow the Jewels, but you've gotta take a break for a minute to return to standard-issue Run the Jewels. 'Cause Jaime and Mike are back with "Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)," and it's exactly everything the title promises. KABOOM.

    It's a great bite-size treat while we wait for the full-length follow-up to last October's Run the Jewels 2. El-P's production still kicks us in the face, and neither dude's lost an ounce of that commanding power in his voice.

    The Soundcloud info for the track reads:

    "This is the first single from the soundtrack for the documentary Rubble Kings (www.rubblekings.com), out on October 30th via Mass Appeal Records. Produced by Little Shalimar, the soundtrack, which is based on the score of the film, features appearances by Run the Jewels, Bun B, Mr Muthaf*kin Exquire, Ka and Roxiny amongst others.

    Rubble Kings tells the story of how a few extraordinary, forgotten people did the impossible, during the gang era of NYC and how their actions impacted the city and the world over by planting the seeds to what would become hip hop culture."

    Yes; we will watch that. Right after we watch that crazy, cat-tastic Meow the Jewels music video one more time.
