Now you can panther like a whole new panther!
When Run the Jewels dropped the excellent RTJ3 at the end of last year, there wasn’t really anything to complain about, except from understandably obsessive completists who noticed the album version of “Panther Like a Panther” was significantly different from the one whose snippet had briefly leaked and became an instant favorite. Jewel Runners El-P and Killer Mike have said from the jump that the demo would eventually surface, and today those men of their words came through.
The pre-Trina “Panther Like a Panther” quietly prowled out of its cage today, and it’s well worth the wait. Turn the bass up for this one, it absolutely knocks and makes us wonder just what other gems might be prowling around El-P’s archives.
