El-P says the upcoming project from he and partner-in-rhyme Killer Mike is finished, but it looks like Killer Mike may want to make a few tweaks. Earlier today, El-P tweeted “RTJ4 is done,” but not long after that, Killer Mike chimed in to write: “Hold up! I wanna change something….” Of course, he followed that with a string of laughing emojis so he was probably just joking.
In November, El-P told fans that the album would be “out earlyish next year” — meaning in 2020 — and promised that “it’s hard as f*ck.” In November, the album wasn’t mixed yet and still needed sample clearances, but it looks like all that’s been sorted out. While there still isn’t a release date in mind, fans should expect to see a single sometime in the near future.
Meanwhile, the duo is planning on going on tour with a reunited Rage Against The Machine beginning this spring, which could indicate something coming down the pipeline soon. The tour kicks off with their appearance at the 2020 BUKU Music + Art Project in March and runs through the end of the summer, including an appearance at Boston Calling in May.
