Run The Jewels ft. BOOTS | 2100 | Music
"For our friends. For our family. For everyone who is hurting or scared right now. Here is a song we wrote months ago. We weren't planning on releasing it yet but… well it feels right, now. It's about fear and it's about love and it's about wanting more for all of us. It's called "2100". We hope it finds you well." - Love, Jaime and Mike. Produced by El-P, Co Produced by Little Shalimar and Wilder Zoby Mixed by Joey Raia Mastered by Joe LaPorta Photo credit: Meredith Graves
