As Run the JewelsKiller Mike and El-P are two of music's most consistently political actors. The rap duo returned, dutifully, on Tuesday to drop "2100," a song about fear, love and "wanting more for all of us."

"How long before the hate that we hold / Lead us to another Holocaust?" Killer Mike opens. By the end, El-P is wondering "what a joy it'd be to see some peace in this life."

Listen to Run the Jewels' "2100"—which features Boots, who showed up on RTJ2's anti–police brutality opus "Early"—below:

Here's what El-P had to say on Twitter:

"for our friends. for our family. for everyone who is hurting or scared right now. here is a song we wrote months ago. we werent planning on releasing it yet but… well it feels right, now. its about fear and its about love and its about wanting more for all of us. its called 2100. we hope it finds you well. 

love, jaime and mike"
