While it looks like the highly-anticipated fourth album, RT4, from Run The Jewels, maybe seeing light a lot sooner than most of us thought. As today the duo of Killer Mike and El-P’s new single, Ooh LA LA, was premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show. Their second single within the past few days, following the release of, Yankee and The Brave (Ep. 4).
The very dope new single finding the duo sampling Gang Starr’s classic collaboration with Nice & Smooth, DWYCK. With Mike and Jamie even giving feature credit on the record to Greg Nice and DJ Premier for the sample being used.
El-P telling Apple Music the following about sampling the classic Gang Starr record for the new single, “There’s not a lot of classic undermined golden age material that hasn’t been turned into a jam. And I’ve been plotting on this for probably the last three albums.” Also adding, “We don’t intentionally do old school music… But our influences and who we are come from an era that is very real.”
