After releasing visuals for “JU$T” with Pharrell and Zack de la Rocha, Run The Jewels joins Travis Barker for a new track titled “Forever.” The joint single follows the pair’s RTJ 2 cut “All Due Respect” from back in 2014, and features the Blink-182 drummer’s heavy drum production over grinding synths.

Killer Mike and El-P of Run The Jewels embark on a lyrical battle, both comparing themselves to Russian leaders. “Rap’s Rasputin, I’m pulling pumps on pompous ass preachers and shooting/I’m sittin’ on the last pew-pew-pewin’,” Killer Mike raps. “One day the poor will eat the affluent/Hope you atone for you past doings.” “Balderdash, you not gettin’ it past rap’s Putin/Who ride a horse, bareback, shootin’,” El-P follows. “A champ in the land of the stupid/The kind that take the candy out kids’ hands and laugh in amusement.” The track follows the release of Run The Jewels’ highly-anticipated album RTJ4, which released in June to align with the nation-wide protests that followed the murder of George Floyd.

Listen to “Forever” for yourself down below. All proceeds from the song will be going to the Next Level Boys Academy, a charity that focuses on helping young men avoid prison and develop into stable members of society.

Elsewhere in music, DaBaby recently announced the release of the deluxe version of Blame It on Baby.
