Run The Jewels Release New Single From ‘Venom’ Soundtrack

The pair are gearing up for ‘Run the Jewels 4.’

Run The Jewels have long been big comic book fans, and they recently contributed a song to the soundtrack of the blockbuster superhero movie Venom. The track, “Let’s Go (The Royal We),” is their first proper release since “Mean Demeanor” in September 2017.

Killer Mike and El-P spoke about the track with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, revealing that the music was originally part of a trailer that El-P put together for Blade Runner 2049. The music was unused, and the producer later shared the demo on SoundCloud.

“The music actually came from a trailer that I submitted for the Blade Runner 2049 trailer. They asked me to take a crack at the trailer and so I did a version, a piece of music that ultimately they didn’t use,” said El-P. “But I just loved the shit so much that I was like, ‘I have to use this.’”

Killer Mike also revealed that working on the song helped them begin to carve out the direction of their upcoming record, likely to be titled Run the Jewels 4.

“The record turned out dope. It gave us a primer for what I think is going to be a dope next album,” he said, also revealing that this was the first RTJ record they made while in separate locations.

Lyrically, “Let’s Go” is vintage Run the Jewels, with the pair trading politically charged, darkly humorous bars. On the opening verse, El-P raps:

Anarchists put a flame to a tire, walk around with the fire round necks
Mankind gotta deal with a new kind of mind I’m a quick death wrapped in a threat
Tell these fuzzy little weak-heart bunny babies back up or get wet
Never mind where you draw the line, I got a mind for crime, it’s all disrespect

Eminem was also involved in the Venom soundtrack, releasing a title song for the film that was part of his Kamikaze record.
