"i know a lot of you are hoping we drop rtj4 this year so it’s only right i let you know clearly: we are not," he explained on Twitter. "we just got off tour like 5 months ago. i scored a film and got married. we started and are working on it but it’s not even close to done. i tell you because i love you."
The rapper did assure fans that he and Mike are back in the studio and getting ready to record Run The Jewels 4. On Instagram, he revealed they plan on dropping the project in 2019.
After debuting their song "Let's Go" on Zane Lowe's Beats1 show, the two rappers said they're trying to make the "grimiest rawest record" they possibly could.
