Run The Jewels‘ El-P has previewed a snippet of a brand new track, ‘A Few Words For The Firing Squad (Radiation)’, through his personal Instagram account. The song is the closing track of the group’s upcoming record Run The Jewels 4.

The track’s preview comes shortly after Run The Jewels announced they would release their new record for free in light of the ongoing protests against police brutality after the murder of George Floyd.
Over the weekend, Run the Jewels’ Killer Mike expressed his anger about the systemic racism inherent in America’s justice system on television during an impromptu speech which is one of the most moving speeches of all time.
“I am duty-bound to be here to simply say that it is your duty not to burn your own house down for anger with an enemy,” Killer Mike said. “It is your duty to fortify your own house so that you may be a house of refuge in times of organization.”
“It is time to beat up prosecutors you don’t like at the voting booth,” he added. “It is time to hold mayoral offices accountable, chiefs and deputy chiefs. I’m mad as hell. I woke up wanting to see the world burn down yesterday because I am tired of seeing black men die,” he said.
“We want to see the system that sets up for systemic racism burned to the ground.”
