    Hehe, wow! The ranking seems to be all over the place for the four RTJ records.

    For me it's:

    RJT3/4 (can't decide yet)
    RTJ
    RTJ2

    I always believe that 3 has more "hits", but I'm totally digging the beats on number 4 right now. It's a way meaner and unpleasent record and very much needed right now. During my first listen I was mad that Zack would just be a sample but his verses are great. Can't say that about J-Ho though who is barely noticeable apart from some wailing. The song he's on is amazing though!

    A truly powerful and zeitgeist-y record! Had no idea that they would knock it out of the park like this.

    Still trying to pick up my jaw from the floor. RTJ4 surpassed all my expectations.

    Because the El-P thread started long before RtJ I believe, and i would imagine people never thought RtJ would blow up the way it did when the project first formed (I imagine El-P & Killer Mike didn't either), so it just kept staying in here bc why start a new thread that might not get any traction, ya know?

    tbf they earned a seperate thread at the latest when RTJ2 blew up the way it did.

    Also: Anyone here, that got into EL-P's music through him re-releasing his older work in the last couple months/years? How did it sound to you? Was it better/weaker than you expected from knowing him through RTJ?

    We could rename this thread to an all-encompassing one (RTJ+KM+El-P), like Steven Wilson's "catch-all" thread.

    Sorry if this is too simple a question, but do you think that the 'I can't breathe' lyric in 'Walking in the snow' was written before or after George Floyd? Such a powerful song.

    The sound mix is amazing, and I really like the black-and-white videos of the featured artists. Would have been cooler if they actually performed live from their homes or something, but I'm sure something like this would have been ten times harder.

    How come I knew it'd be uploaded in full so I didn't need to watch live?

    It was pretty quality. RTJ4 is not my favorite album and its good. Pulling the Pin was my favorite performance.
