Does the term “banger” offend you? If so, then you might call this track an up-tempo anthem with snappy snares and brick-hard spitting. I however, prefer the less convoluted noun, banger. No matter what you call it, this song presents three MC’s in top form. Run The Jewels is a rap syndicate, composed of two modern-day wordsmiths: Killer Mike and El-P. “Close Your Eyes” is the latest track teasing their second full-length, RTJ2. On their latest preview, Run The Jewels are joined by Rage Against The Machine frontman Zack de la Rocha, who I haven’t heard form in some time, but hasn’t lost the beat. He instead, kills the beat and leaves it on the curb. Enjoy.
