Who let these guys near the oval office? The latest music video release from NY-ATL hip-hop duo Run The Jewels, "Get It" (which is actually a throwback jam from their debut album) features Killer Mike and El-P on and off stage in a quick paced montage of trippy visual dissolves.

During the video, RTJ spits some seriously intense flow, honestly stating their intention to "get it."

Filled with clever cultural references, some of topics covered in the rap include Catholic dogma, corporate slavery, and feminism all underscored by a tri-tone based synth hook. The tri-tone (or augmented fourth interval) has historically been called "the devil in music," and shows these guys mean business.

The production on the track is pretty solid, except for the vocal sampling near the end which felt a bit superfluous. One of the coolest things about the hook is how the Dilla-esque snare drum fills the pocket between the synth hits.

RTJ1 is available on Amazon (Vinyl, CD, MP3). You can also stream the album or get the free MP3 download right here on Zumic.

Run The Jewels has also just announced new tour dates in Europe. For Run The Jewels' latest music, news, and tour dates, check out their Zumic artist page.
