Run The Jewels – Early (Official Music Video from Run The Jewels 2)


It be feelin’ like the life that I’m livin’
a man I don’t control Like every day I’m in a fight for my soul
Could it be that my medicine’s the evidence For pigs to stop and frisk me when they rollin’
round on patrol? And ask “why you’re here?” I just tell
’em cause it is what it is I live here and that’s what it is
He chimed “you got a dime? I said “Man, I’m tryin’ to smoke and chill
Please don’t lock me up in front of my kids And in front of my wife, man, I ain’t got
a gun or a knife You do this and you ruin my life
And I apologize if it seems like I got out of line, sir
Cause I respect the badge and the gun And I pray today ain’t the day that you drag
me away Right in front of my beautiful son”
And he still put my hands in cuffs, put me in the truck
When my woman screamed, said “shut up” Witness with the camera phone on
Saw the copper pull a gun and put it on my gorgeous queen
As I peered out the window I could see my other kinfolk and hear my little
boy as he screamed As he ran toward the copper begged him not
to hurt his momma Cause he had her face down on the ground
And I’d be much too weak to ever speak what I seen
But my life changed with that sound Get out, get out, get out, get out
Feeling this, feeling this too early Get out, get out, get out, get out
Feeling this way, feeling this way Feeling this, feeling this too early
Feeling this, feeling this early Early [x4] It be feelin’ like the life that I’m living
man, I don’t control Cause every day I’m in a fight for my soul
All hands below, high seas in a rickety boat Smoke o’s, so the kid might cope
You want cash or hope, no clash, matter fact get both
Go without get turnt to ghosts You know that’s the law, deal done by the
shake of claws It ain’t a game if the shit don’t pause
And I find you odd, so convinced in the truth of y’all
That the true truth’s truly gone And yes there’s a they, any time a man say
there’s not Then you know that he lost the plot, what
can I say? Truth’s truth when denied or not, like its
true crews ride the cock Fair enough, the way that the beat bump do
sound tough I made it in the dark like Civil War surgery
Woke up in the same air you huff, early By twelve o’clock the whole Earth felt dirty
Street Lamps stare when you walk watch the birdie
They’ll watch you walk to the store they’re recording
But didn’t record cop when he shot, no warning Heard it go pop, might have been two blocks
Heard a kid plus pops watched, cop make girl bleed
Go to home, go to sleep, up again, early

  1. I feel like there are allot of rap songs that, once you remove the lyrics and voice, are identical. I like how RTJ always sounds great, lyrics or no. I’m sayin that the background music sounds great, I love it.

  2. This is what real rap sound like this is what's really going on this is why today's rap would never be able to compete or compare to feelings responsibility or ownership of what's really happening today this is why today's rap is sugar-coated tight jeans curly colored hair long t-shirts made like skirts gay like rap style because none of them talk about what's really going on what's really happening and what really is reality this is real this is what everyone can relate to this is what's really going on right here right now and already today rappers want to rap about is money b**** and cars they have more to rap about today than any rappers in our past ever had and yet they say nothing that's why they music comes and it goes and it will never be remembered in rap history and R&B history in hip hop history cuz it never had a point ever

  3. Does anybody else notice the significance of the color choice in this amazing art/animation? If you don't already know… Red and black. Colors of the revolution baby. Self educate ourselves. 👉🏾👊🏾

  4. Retribution for all those falsely persecuted and prosecuted unjustly! MAY ALL THE GODS OF KARMA HAVE JUSTICE FOR THEM!

  5. this doesnt feel like the latest styrophome cup to be pulled of the top of the stack.this has texture

  6. I went in expecting a pretty anti copish sorta track trying to push a lot of liberal agendas however I was greeted by quite the amazing track filled with heart and soul. Probably the favourite track of Run the Jewls 2

  7. if you guys like lyricism with a message, you should check out this new artist named X [prezzz]. his youtube channel name is Xprezzzhatred

    no money or nothing for redhats. they cannot be trsuted. i know what i'm talking about. see, lots of ways to wear a hat. like to burn shit. fuck off alt-right. i think we fine. just shut up and change your fucking diapers.

  11. great stuff . I'm a tad late ..this is a CD I would buy ..been away from listening rap , just like 2004 this is better than overly commercial stuff .. now it's no comparison.. indie rap is 800 miles ahead ..

  13. I wonder what its like to have a last name that means loser, idk my lst name means winner…. Ahh nothing to do with the song.

  14. it makes me nauseous that lil pumpchump has like two HUNDRED MIL views on a 3 mo old vid… this deserved everyone forced to watch and read it. This is what will shape our future for real… world's fucked.

  15. If you get a chance to see RTJ, take it! Saw them twice this year and they are amazing live. Get the crowd all kinds of hyped RES-SPEK!!!

  18. I don't really like Run the Jewels that much. I'm a big El-P fan, especially his underground work on Rawkus and Definitive Jux. I don't care for Killer Mike's solo work. However, this song and ''A Christmas Fucking Miracle'' are truly great and remind me of, in my opinion, El-P's best work.

  19. you really gotta look for this one don't forget the name, early. This song got so much emotion especially killer mike verse.

  20. This is fuckin great….
    Why is it three years old, and I've never heard it?!
    I've been listening to RTJ for three years!

    I suck as a fan…..

  21. The unique jewels you brothers combine to create puts you in a category in my mind reserved for very few MC's. Peace.

  22. RTJ is real, and it' doesn't dumb shit down. Why should they? I love this shit. To be perfectly honest it reminds me of when I was a teenager, when I that fire in my belly could hardly be contained, when I had infinite energy to affect real change because the horror of the world, the real world, dragged me down and beat the shit out of me. RTJ rekindles some of that fire and it gives me hope that change can be affected yet and the idea that was pounded into my skull that the world doesn't know me and I cannot change it begins to make me ashamed that I even thought it, that I gave that nonsense voice. Be careful out there fellas, that goes to all of yall. Don't give up.

  23. Yup, shut up, see, now white people are really seeing, well myself and mine do, but we had been so. But, I avoid all people at this point…. But, my neighbors seems to love y'all too so…

  24. Honestly nice to discover a from afaik rap group that still operates and reminds me of the good ol' 90s rap

  26. Shit's blowing up in Hong Kong. The fight is just as real there as it is here. Show support because there is about to be rivers of blood on the streets.

  27. 40 odd year old fellas from east coast, teaching them dickheads that mumble, how correct pronunciation of words in rhythm to create rap music to get their observations of society and its flaws to the young is what grandmaster flash and the FURIOUS 5 more or less invented the genre for.
    im English i live in England, and what RTJ have done is looked at american society, politics, moral standards and social norms through a tourists eyes and unsurprisingly, they aint fucking liking what they see!!
    i hope that one day all you american people will be truly diverse and see everyone as next mans equal.
    Feel sorry for you all because you aint in the land of the free.

  28. If the fucking system take my daughter away how the fuck you expect me to react. Y'all think im a retard but don't wait till i gi full retards y'all already
    Fucked up my marriage and my medication now back the fuck up cuz im gonna swing.
