Run the Jewels ft. Zack De La Rocha - Close Your Eyes (And Count to F*ck)

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Run The Jewels
  • Track: Close Your Eyes (And Count to F*ck)
  • Producer: El-P
  • Album: RTJ2

Update: The A.G. Rojas-directed visuals for Run The Jewels Close Your Eyes (And Count to F*ck) single have been added.

The guest features Run The Jewels has recruited for its second studio album are few in number, but you could hardly ask for a more eclectic lineup of artists. For example, Zack De La Rocha lends a little rap-rock flavor to their latest single. Close Your Eyes (And Count to F*ck) is far from the lullaby its title (the first part, anyway) seems to suggest; El-P's instrumental is an abrasive mix of chopped vocal samples and ultra-distorted guitar riffs, and, as befitting a collab with the frontman of Rage Against the Machine, Killer Mike turns his fiery political rhetoric up to 11. For this record, the previously-featured Oh My Darling Don't Cry and much more, cop RTJ2 on October 28, when it drops in both physical and freely downloadable versions.
