Run The Jewels have revealed they are working on a film.
El-P and Killer Mike are currently focussed on 'RTJ4', with the release incoming amid the global COVID-19 crisis.
Chatting to Zane Lowe on Apple Music, El-P appeared to be philosophical about the landscape surrounding the pair's new record.
"So listen, ultimately everything that happens in service of making the final product is what was meant to happen the same way that me getting kicked out of f-ing high school. If that hadn't happened, I wouldn't be here talking to you. So I look at it pretty philosophically. It's just a pain in the ass because me and Mike really want to get this record to the people and so we're working our asses off to make sure that that happens..."
Continuing, El-P revealed that a Run The Jewels film is potentially in the works. "We've just been chipping away and writing a little bit every year, man, in between tours and everything," he said. "We just come up. We know the basis of the movie and it's something that me and Mike have always told each other, has always decided that we always wanted to do that."
"We base our group a little bit partly off like the Blues Brothers. When you see two dudes dressed in all black with sunglasses on you know. There's a couple of references there. It's Run-DMC and it's the Blues Brothers. But I'll tell you, no, it's not based on a true story. Only elements of our personalities and our lives are in there. It's going to be a buddy action comedy."
"That's where we're headed anyway. It looks like we actually might have the door cracked a little bit to do this. It may become a reality soon."
'RTJ4' is incoming.
