For fans of rap duo Run the Jewels, Christmas has come early. Three days early, in fact, as overnight El-P and Killer Mike released RTJ2, the much anticipated follow-up to their 2013 debut album, ahead of its scheduled Oct. 27 release date. “We just couldn’t wait another damn day longer to share RTJ2 with you,” they said in an email to fans. (It had leaked online shortly before Run the Jewels released it themselves.) You can download the album in full for free by clicking here.

We’ve previously heard promising album tracks “Blockbuster Night Pt. 1,” “Oh My Darling Don’t Cry,” and, most recently, their Zack de la Rocha collaboration “Close Your Eyes (and Count to Fuck).” The album also features Blink 182’s Travis Barker, Gangsta Boo, and Beyoncé producer BOOTS. Check back on Slate later today for our interview with Run the Jewels.
