Killer Mike has announced his first solo album in a decade, and shared the first track, 'Don't Let the Devil'. You can listen to the single below. 

The cut features fellow Run The Jewels (RTJ) member El-P and rising voice thankugoodsir on microphone duties. Chicago hip hop and R&B luminary No I.D. is credited with production alongside Little Shalimar, who, with Wilder Zoby, has been heavily involved in every RTJ album to date. 

Killer Mike's new full-length outing, 'Michael', is due to be released on 16th June, and takes the form of an autobiographical project. Bringing a lengthy solo hiatus to an end, the artist has described his much-anticipated follow up to 2012's 'R.A.P. Music' as "my Logan", whereas "RTJ is the X-Men". 

Last month, Run The Jewels unveiled plans for their 10th anniversary tour. The duo will play 16 dates in four cities — New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Atlanta. Sets will take in work from all four critically acclaimed LPs, spanning 'Run the Jewels' to 2020's 'RTJ4'.
