Some of the most intensive, darkly aggressive music today isn’t being made by a punk or death-metal band. Instead, the most sonically furious and lyrically confrontational music is being created by a couple of rappers, Killer Mike and El-P, under the name Run the Jewels. On the duo’s most recent album, Run the Jewels 3, Killer Mike declares, “I move in a world of conspiracies/Obey no rules, I’m doing me.” His partner El-P chimes in, “I’m dirt, motherfucker/I can’t be crushed.” The rest of the record is a seedy travelogue through the new world disordered, culminating in an apocalyptic state-of-the-disunion address, “A Report to the Shareholders/Kill Your Masters.” Killer Mike insists, “We the gladiators that oppose all Caesars,” as guest vocalist Zack de la Rocha joins the rebellion with his own bleakly raging battle slogans.
