Run the Jewels say their forthcoming album RTJ4, which will feature the production talents of the legendary Rick Rubin, “is going to punch you in the fucking face and burn everything in its path.”

Consequence of Sound reports that, according to a newsletter sent to fans, the duo is “going hard on RTJ4 and have a genuine excitement to share new music with you all.”

Last year, El-P tweeted, “I know a lot of you are hoping we drop RTJ4 this year so it’s only right I let you know clearly: we are not,” and that the record "will probably hit around summer time.” Now, as we enter summer, Run the Jewels have updated fans, saying they stopped by Rubin’s Los Angeles studio to “keep shit moving.”

Rubin's production credits read like a who's who of hip-hop and rock, featuring LL Cool J, the Beastie Boys, Run-DMC, Public Enemy, Kanye West, and Slayer.

You can get a look inside Rubin's Shangri-La studio in the four-part Shangri-La docuseries, which debuts on Showtime on July 12.
