El-P of Run The Jewels took to Instagram yesterday (May 14) to share a quick clip of what is presumably the group's third album, Run The Jewels 3 (at least according to the #RTJ3 hashtag). Listen to the first tease of the upcoming album (complete with Thriller-esque synths) below:

Unfortunately, El-P also shared that the album was definitely not coming in 2015 on Twitter (their most recent release, Run The Jewels 2, dropped last year, and their debut the year before that):

Killer Mike and El-P just shared their video for "Early," one of the songs off RTJ2 -- animated in shades of black, grey and red, it features striking images of Ferguson, Baltimore and other recent protests connected to the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
