Run the Jewels - Run the Jewels 2 (2014)

Thanks to Gavin for this one. Let's start here: even by hip-hop standards, this is not for the feint of heart. There are some five second intervals where they don't swear vociferously, but they are tough to find. They also don't use the word "ladies" much either, if you catch my drift.

Musically, it's pretty insanely good. Smart and fully formed, the music flows seamlessly with the vocals sonically. It's totally catchy and musically sound.  The samples are inserted expertly.  It's a whole cloth experience for sure.

Run the Jewels - "Lie, Cheat, Steal" (NSFW, but more safe than other songs)

So as long as you don't get offended easily by just about anything you can think of (and that is not totally an exaggeration), you're really going to enjoy this. If you draw a line at how you'll go with lyrics from your musicians, you're likely to be tested on this one.

CD Placement Rating:  Car iPod.
