Should you need a last minute Halloween costume, make that, fashion t-shirt, Run the Jewels, the explosive rap duo comprised of El-P and Killer Mike, would like to remind you they have some "killer" merch for sale, including some mummy-themed sweatshirts and tees, as well as the new "Run the Ghouls" tee, featuring a mash up of their profiles spliced together, Frankenstein-style. (While you're in the holiday shopping spirit, don't miss their "Christmas F*cking Miracle" print.)
The rappers are clearly in celebration mode, still high after the wildly successful release of their second album RTJ2, which they released for free around this time last year and consequently helped pad their growing fanbase even further. Below, watch the group's new video for "Angel Duster," which they say is "a look back over the last amazing 365 days. So here's to an incredible '15 and even more incredible '16..."

In a message to fans today, the group stated, "What a wild and rewarding year it's been!! We've done some pretty cool sh*t, worked with some amazing people, toured the world and rocked for as many fans as we possibly could. None of this would be possible without you guys. Thank. You. All. It's why we do it."
It's true RTJ is much loved by fans; the pair's 'Meow the Jewels' kickstarter campaign—to remix RTJ2 using all cat sounds—was successfully funded well past its $45,100 goal, garnering a whopping $65,783 to bring the project to light, with the majority of proceeds going to both Eric Garner's and Michael Brown's family's charities of choice. The result of the effort—one that features contributions including everyone from Portishead's Geoff Barrow and Massive Attack's 3D Robert "3D" del Naja, to Dan the Automator, Prince Paul, Zola Jesus, and Just Blaze—dropped last month to eager listeners, and is again available for free download on the band's site. Various vinyl packages will be available starting now through November.
