Future: ‘Pie’ ft. Chris Brown
Haunted house rides are pretty corny — rubber monsters pop out of the dark while you spill soda between the seats. In this haunted house, the monsters are politicians, gentrification, racial profiling and corporal punishment.
“Good day from the house of the haunted / Get a job, get a house, get a coffin,” raps El-P in the second verse of Run The Jewels‘ “Don’t Get Captured,” inhabiting the capitalists who systematically oppress the poor. “Don’t stray from the path, remain where you at / That maximizes our profit.”

RTJ3 is out now.
