Run The Jewels recently appeared on the podcast Song Exploder, a show where artists breakdown everything about a particular track. The song featured on the episode was their track “JU$T” from their most recently album, RTJ4.
Not only do we get a deep dive into the track’s lyrics and message from both Kiler Mike and El-P, but they also detail what it was like to work with two musical legends: Rage Against The Machine’s lead vocalist Zack De La Rocha, and the ageless mastermind Pharrell Williams. The process behind the creation of this banger is fascinating.
We recently uncovered a Song Exploder episode where ODESZA talk about their secret third member, Sean Kusanagi.
