It’s taken from upcoming album ‘RTJ4’.

After spontaneously sharing new song ‘Yankee and the Brave (ep. 4)’ with fans via their Instagram, Run The Jewels have given us yet another taste of forthcoming album with new track ‘Ooh LA LA’.

Featuring Greg Nice and DJ Premier, the blistering single is lifted from their hotly-anticipated new album ‘RTJ4’ recorded primarily at Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La Studios in Malibu and Electric Lady Studios in New York.

Talking to Zane Lowe, El-P says, “It was one of those things where I was like, ‘Yo, I think that we have a classic jam. I just have to get Mike in front of this thing,’ because I already felt like this is incredible, but you never know. You just pray to your rap partner’s going to be like, ‘Yes, I feel this as much as you feel this sh*t.”

“It didn’t take much selling,” Killer Mike adds. “I’m a gang starr, die hard. So, when I heard it, was all on. And Greg Nice, come on man. Nice smooth man. It wasn’t hard to convince me man. This is the party right before everybody leaves or somebody gets beat up.”
