Twitter – El-P’s wife Emily Panic has provided an update on Run The Jewels’ forthcoming Run The Jewels 4 album. On Monday (March 25), Panic sent out a tweet explaining she’d just heard the project and insisted it was comparable to Lil Wayne’s 2010 album, Rebirth.
“Guys, last night @therealelp played me the new #RTJ4 tracks they’ve been working on,” she wrote. “and all I can say is I hope you loved that Lil Wayne rock album (Rebirth) because it sounds a lot like that.”
She added three flame emojis to drive home her point. But considering Panic is a professional comedian and Rebirth wasn’t exactly one of Weezy’s most well received projects, fans can anticipate an expert troll job.

Rebirth served as Wayne’s seventh studio album and relied heavily on a rap-rock aesthetic. The project received a measly 1.5 out of 5 at HipHopDX, while Metacritic’s user score average 3.2 based on “generally unfavorable reviews.”
El-P and Killer Mike have been dangling their fourth studio album in front of their fans for some time. Last December, the motley duo teased a release date although it has yet to be confirmed. All he said was it would be out sometime in 2019.
RTJ4 will serve as the follow-up to 2016’s RTJ3.
