    Run the Jewels' El-P and Killer Mike

    While 2013 saw the release of several albums from many of rap's heavyweights (Kanye's Yeezus, Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail, Drake's Nothing Was the Same) a dark horse stood alongside them in year-end best-of lists: rap duo Run The Jewels' self-titled debut. Now, a year later, the twosome (Killer Mike and El-P) are back with a much-anticipated follow-up album (which they leaked to fans -- for free -- last Friday), Run The Jewels 2. Along with the release, the guys are coming out with a cat sounds version of the record (more on that HERE) and will be taking over Rough Trade in Williamsburg this Wednesday, giving fans the chance to hear RTJ2 in full and meet the rappers. On the heels of the album's leak, we talk to the duo about collaborating with Travis Barker, auditioning cats, and why "mushrooms and alcohol" help fuel their all-night recording sessions.

    What are the biggest differences between RTJ2 and your debut?

    El-P: It's got a number "2" next to it...

    Killer Mike: The album cover is different.

    El-P: Other than that, it's literally the same record. We just changed the cover slightly and put number "2" on it and we're re-selling the exact same record and pretending it's new. But, actually, it's harder, it's meaner, it's darker. We tried to inject and infuse the songs with things that really mean something to us.

    Killer Mike: We decided to bring some of our individual thoughts and concerns that we usually reserve for our solo records and make this record heavier. Not sadder or darker in terms of gloom, but darker in terms of understanding the importance of what's going on around us right now. I remember writing a verse for a song called "Early," in which I describe a young man being stopped and frisked illegally and arrested for having 3 grams or less than an ounce of marijuana. It also describes a policeman overreacting in a situation in a working class neighborhood and a woman being murdered. All of this is done in a 16 bar verse and it's done passionately and without anger and with empathy. I'm glad that El and I decided to do it because people need to hear music that's reflective of the times.

    You're donating all of the money raised on the Kickstarter to fund the cat-sounds version of RTJ2, Meow the Jewels, to Eric Garner and Mike Brown's families. What compelled you to do that?

    El-P: A man's gotta stand for something. If we let injustice and death at the hands of our "protectors" slide, we're all fucked.

    And, speaking of Meow the Jewels, were you surprised when the project got funded?

    El-P: Yes, very much so. It was just a joke I thought of while stoned.

    How did the cat auditions go?


    El-P: Good batch of cats. Maybe a few stars. Hard to tell.

    rtj2_tile.jpgWhat's the dynamic like between the two of you when you're recording?

    El-P: I'm a little bit more of a taskmaster because I'm also a producer. But we're pretty democratic when we work together because we really enjoy doing it.

    Killer Mike: El likes working in the daytime and I like working really late at night.

    El-P: But if you give me enough mushrooms and alcohol, I'll make it through the night.

    Back to your album -- you have some interesting collaborators on it like Zack de la Rocha from Rage Against the Machine and Travis Barker from Blink-182. How'd you decide to team up with them?

    El-P: For most of my career, I've done [collaborations] like this. In 2007 I released I'll Sleep When You're Dead and I had Trent Reznor and Mars Volta and Cat Power on it. We're music fans. Period. It's a thrill to be able to work with people we respect and the people on the record are all friends of ours and connected to us in different ways. The collaborations unfolded just because of our relationships -- it was organic. Mike and I have been lucky to have gotten a lot of support and feedback from people from lots of different genres of music. And, as a hip-hop producer, you're familiar with so many different genres of music because you spend the first 20 years of your life collecting records from different genres. So it would be ridiculous for me not to be in love with rock 'n' roll, soul, R&B...it would mean that I wasn't doing my job as a producer and as a music lover.

    What made you want to release the RTJ2 for free?


    El-P: Let me tell you a dirty little secret: when you put a record out there and you're pretending that you're not giving it a way for free -- you are giving it away for free anyway. That shit is going to be online. I'm tired of the game. Let's not pretend that you don't have the record and you're waiting for some big premiere. If my record is going to be out there for free anyway, I might as well control it and give it to you the way I want to give it to you.

    He's "got the white and the green -- and there gotta be a pint if you're looking for the lean," but don't count on iLoveMakonnen to supply the molly for your weekday turn up. On the remix to "I Don't Sell Molly No More," produced by Sonny Digital, Gucci Mane and Wiz Khalifa (who appeared on a previous mix of the song) help iLoveMakonnen renounce the drug.

    Perhaps nothing with ever be as catchy or strangely necessary than iLoveMakonnen's ode to Tuesday clubbing even if "I Don't Sell Molly No More" is a decent trap track. But what we're really impressed with is Gucci Mane's uncanny ability to keep releasing new music from jail.

    horoscopes copy.jpgTrouble with love? Work problems? Mercury retrograde? Don't worry. Rapper, author of the forthcoming novel O.K. (Sorry House), and expert astrological navigator, Kool A.D. will safely guide you through the coming month.

    LIBRA

    OK, Libby: now that mercury is safely out of retrograde, I would say it's probably best to just do ur thing. Ur doing fine. Ur gonna be great, don't trip. It's all good -- just chill, stay relaxed, and don't freak out. U really are doing great.

    SCORPIO

    Same thing, Scorp. Merc retro's over so just chill, do u, and stay positive. Don't over think anything. Keep that PMA (positive mental attitude). Smoke weed everyday, stay hydrated, and a couple sit-ups and push-ups wouldn't hurt. Let's say like 50 push-ups and a hundred sit-ups (or crunches, whatever, who cares) per day. If ur too embarrassed to go to yoga look up yoga moves on Youtube or something.

    SAGITTARIUS

    Keep doing u. Remember to floss when u can and buy an extra big mouthwash. At some point in ur life, try throwing out all of ur old socks and underwear and buying all new socks and underwear. It's a game changer. Do push-ups, sit-ups, smoke weed everyday, and "stay calm."  If you're under 18 with no record and u see a cop car, and u happen to also be around a cinder block or whatever, then u might as well; juvenile hall is hella mellow compared to regular jail. Or shit, if ur over 18 with no record and ur bored, give it a shot too.

    CAPRICORN


    Don't give into self doubt. If you are decisive u will always be pretty good. And if you are decisive and motivated u can do whatever. So just do whatever, feel me? And maybe destroy some police property too. If it's convenient then why not?

    AQUARIUS


    Ur a good person, just remember to be patient with people. Everybody's going thru something. Get some fried chicken from Elve's on MLK, that shit crack.

    PISCES

    U can afford to be more ambitious. Literally do whatever u want.

    ARIES

    That same advice for PISCES goes for u too, ARIES. Aim high, or whatever. Do literally whatever u want to do.

    TAURUS

    U can ask for a raise.

    GEMINI

    U can ask for a raise too. Yes -- PISCES, ARIES, TAURUS and GEMINI can all ask a raise any time in the month of NOVEMBER. I'm right on this one, look it up.

    CANCER

    You can sneak a raise too if u want, but u should be focusing more on FINESSING. For help, listen to FUTURE: FINESSIN. Last month was an eclipse conjunct Uranus, so compared to that this month is a piece of cake. U can drive slightly above the speed limit this month, in fact u probably should.

    LEO

    You really do not need a raise. You mostly need to listen to FINESSIN. U can go 10 mph above the speed limit. Look to CANCER for guidance.

    VIRGO

    Don't be hesitant to ask for assistance, Virg. Listen to FINESSIN a couple times but u already know that. Uh... PMA, el pueblo unido jamas sera vencido. No doubt. Word, OK.

    Apparently there's a VIP crisis at Art Basel Miami Beach -- or maybe it's just a clusterf**k. The problem is that too many people were being admitted on Wednesday, so they've made a big change this year. Instead of hosting the "Vernissage" during the evening of December 3rd, it will now take place on Thursday morning, with the general public admitted at 3 p.m. On Wednesday, "First Choice VIPs" will still get in at 11 a.m. and "Preview VIPs" at 3 p.m. with the doors closing at 8 p.m. The change will probably leave many people scrambling to find a way in before Thursday, but it should prevent another early shut-down by fire marshals as happened in 2011. Marc Spiegler, Director of Art Basel, explains: "We are confident that this opening structure will allow us to provide our galleries with the best opportunity to spend quality time with both existing and potential patrons." Overcrowding -- or shortage of "quality time" -- has also become an issue at Basel in Switzerland and at FRIEZE London, with more VIP days and hours added to keep patrons and galleries happy.

    Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 3.10.21 PM.pngLocal Miami gallery, Locust Projects (3852 North Miami Avenue, Miami), is presenting Daniel Arsham's first major exhibition in Miami since 2010.

    On Nothing Was The Same, Drake promised that he was coming back on his worst behavior and he's been busy shedding the "emotional Drake" with each new release. Not to tempt you, Drake, but the paranoid, revenge-tinged songs "6 God" and the previously leaked "How About Now" just make us miss the old you.

    In particular, "6 God" includes the cringe-worthy line, "She ain't fuckin' with you niggas / And just like every single other thing in my life / You can have her when I'm finished." Drake! We thought you were a nice boy -- but we've been burned by "sensitive" guys before. Maybe Jezebel has it right and Drake needs an intervention, ASAP. What's worse is that the counterpoint to all that posturing, the slow jam of the trio, "Heat of the Moment" is just boring.

    Now it looks like the three new songs that Drake released were just a warning shot. In a Vine that has the whole Internet up in arms, above, Drake shows off just how bad his behavior can get. He angrily throws a wad of cash on the street as he storms into Stadium Club in DC. We've got a lot of questions. But first, how can we apply to be that member in Drake's entourage who is solely responsible for picking up Drake's money when he throws it on the ground?

    While we figure out the job details, you can listen to the three new Drake tracks, below:

    Jim Carrey isn't the only one with a spot-on impression of Matthew McConaughey: somewhat surprisingly, Kate Hudson does an excellent job mimicking her Fool's Gold co-star's stoner drawl. The actress showed it off at last week's American Cinamatheque Awards, which was honoring our favorite Lincoln car commercial actor. Give it a watch, alright (alright alright)?

    Somewhat notoriously, Mac Demarco is Twitter besties with Tyler the Creator and he shares the same gross-out, frat boy humor with the Odd Future rapper in many of his videos. But Mac's charm and talents are mysteriously endless. In the low-fi, short comedy, BACKER, Mac Demarco plays a professional car backer-upper: "Some people think it's a waste of time -- that most people don't need to be backed up. I just tell 'em 'fuck you.'" It quickly gets weird(er) and animated. Watch Mac #backthatshitup, above.

    With a week to go before the miderm elections, several of the celebs we'd most like to be friends with (think: Sia, Alexa Chung, Melissa Auf der Maur, Joan Jett, Max Greenfield, Jemima Kirke, Carrie Brownstein, Tavi, Natasha Lyonne, and many, many more) have made a PSA 'Get Out the Vote' video. Spearheaded by a production company called The Department of Peace (Sarah Sophie Flicker, Tennessee Thomas, Maximilla Lukacs, Rebecca Fernandez and Jorjee Douglass), who, you'll recall, created another excellent PSA before the 2012 presidential election set to Lesley Gore's classic, "You Don't Own Me," the video features these stars dancing and lip syncing to Joan Jett's "Bad Reputation." In the spirit of Jett's feminist message, the clip draws our attention to the fact that "in 2013, there were more laws passed to limit women's reproductive rights than in the entire previous decade," according to a press release, and encourages everyone to get to the polls to elect officials who will fight for women's reproductive rights.

    Give the clip a watch, above, and share it with your friends ahead of election day. A complete list of the familiar faces seen in the PSA, below:

    Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne, and Chris Brown (not pictured nor invited to Nicki's ménage) have teamed up for "Only," another ode to bad bitches. Unfortunately, the new single follows the news that The Pinkprint's release has been pushed back to December 15th.

    Even now, in the context of the song, the track's cover art seems unexplainable. But we're guessing that Drake is pictured in that ridiculous pope hat as a sign of the divine strength that it took to appear on a track with Chris Brown. Listen to "Only," above.

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Chelsea Peretti already likes to think of herself as One of the Greats. But from the looks of it, her new Netflix comedy special, which premieres November 14th, completely eviscerates the tradition of male comics before her. She asks the tough questions like, What's worse: a fedora or killing 15 people? And she also addresses the REAL SERIOUS problem of how we, as women, can reclaim the banana as a delicious snack. Watch the hilarious trailer for One of the Greats, above.

    Kanye West has taken the New York MC Theophilus London under his gilded wing. London's sophomore album Vibes! can boast West as an executive producer and the track "Can't Stop," which you can stream, above, features an excellent verse from Kanye West himself. The avid lover of Ralph Lauren is trying to make "Ralph" a thing ("Everything she was doing was cool / but it ain't Ralph though") and, apparently, you can't stop him.

    Previously, London's been spotted at one of Yeezus' mythic Paris Fashion Week listening parties for his forthcoming album.

    In a press release, London spoke more on his time with 'Ye in Paris: 

    "Kanye West decided he wanted to help the culture through my voice and music. He wanted to help me become a better musician and helped mentor me during the process of Vibes! He agreed to be Executive Producer after hearing "Neu Law" in his car system while driving through Paris."

    Stream the Kanye-produced Vibes!, out November 4th, above.

    FKA twigs has made a name for herself for a lot of reasons -- her soulful-yet-ethereal voice, her distinct style, her dancing -- but perhaps one of the biggest is her cinematic, no-holds barred videos, which have featured everything from black-and-white scenes exploring submission and control to Queen of the Damned-style theatrics. Today the UK singer has released a new clip for "Video Girl," off her debut album LP1 and it may be her boldest production yet. Directed by Kahlil Joseph, the video shows twigs alternately dancing and watching a prisoner receive a lethal injection and at one point the music fades away completely and we see a man whose grills are covered in blood. Give it a watch, above.

Like, so much so that we can't even figure out where one song ends and the other begins. Check it out, above.

    Reggie Watts is currently the undisputed master of comedic song and dance. Now he's teamed up with the Australian duo, Flight Facilities for "Sunshine," a full-on funk jam complete with glorious Saturday Night Fever dance moves on the Venice Beach Boardwalk.

    In the video, above, Reggie Watts stars as a cluelessly ambitious movie producer who envisions an instant Halloween classic "Sunshine," a Twilight meets Happy Days (or Happy Days meets Twilight -- he's flexible) teen horror flick, which comes to fruition at the end of the hilarious clip.
