Run the Jewels have released their new track "Talk to Me," the first taste of their long-awaited Run the Jewels 3 album. The song is a total monster, with Killer Mike and El-P sharing rapid-fire bars atop a no-nonsense, menacing production.

The rap duo are notable for unapologetically sharing their socially conscious and political views both in their music and in regular conversation, and "Talk to Me" isn't any different. Standout lyrics include"On the radio heard a plane hijack / Government be in debt while they cook crack," "Born black, that's dead on arrival / My job is to fight for survival / In spite of these #AllLivesMatter-ass white folk" and "Brave men didn't die face down in the Vietnam mud so I could not style on you."
"Talk to Me" arrives on the two-year anniversary of RTJ's sophomore self-titled album. There's still no clue of when Run the Jewels 3 will drop, but this new track could be an indicator that it's coming soon.
