El-P Premiers Fantastic Four Closing Credits Instrumental, "Another Body" on Beats 1 WRTJ Online Radio Show (Mass Appeal Records?)


Not only have veteran rapper-producers Killer Mike & El-P become something of long-overdue "Hip-Hop royalty," their now-infamous handgun and fist Run The Jewels (RTJ) hashtag-friendly logo has become forever immortalized on a batch of limited-run Marvel comic book covers. "One of my heroes, @therealelp, made a incredible instrumental piece for our end credits. I couldn't be any more excited," Fantastic Four re-boot director @joshuatrank exuberantly Tweeted nearly one month ago, forever cementing RTJ's legacy within The Marvel Universe; that very track, now titled "Another Body," was unveiled over this past weekend. First, in the form of a painfully brief 20-second snippet. Then, it was premiered on El-P & Killer Mike's Beats 1 online WRTJ radio show and now, it has been strategically leaked to The Internet in its full-length form. '"another body" produced by me with [co-production] by the gawd, @littleshalimar and expertly mixed by the lord, @joeyraia," @therealelp Tweeted in conjunction with the track's unofficial Saturday night debut. It's a gradually ascending and self-destructive spacey instrumental Hip-Hop track with subtle stylistic undertones of both Fantastic Four composer Philip Glass and master-beatsmith J Dilla.


El-P's nearly 6-minute brooding instrumental track, "Another Body," composed along with frequent in-studio collaborator Little Shalimar, will seemingly become available prior to Fantastic Four's upcoming August 7th theatrical release and "will be available for purchase soon in HI-FIDELITY SUPER AUDIO FIFELITY SCHMELITY!!!" El-P has additionally been logging studio time with a wide array of his producer-buddies including BOOTS, The Alchemist, Dan The Automator, Zola Jesus, Just Blaze, Baauer, Geoff Barrow, and newly-drafted Massive Attack. Run The Jewels' all-star crew has been feverishly working around the clock on an entirely cat sounds-composed Kickstarter-funded remix album of last year's Run The Jewels 2 (tentatively titled Meow The Jewels) with 100% of the profits collected to produce the $45,100 album going to charities benefiting victims of police brutality. "Meow The Jewels will be released to everyone for free as well as on limited deluxe edition vinyl," according to El-P and while an exact release date is still currently up in the air, "but if all goes right, it [will] drop in September."
