6 months ago, rumors began to swirl of a colaboration between Rage Against the Machine vocalist, Zack de la Rocha, and East Coast flow icon, El-P, after this Instagram photo surfaced online.

Now the wait is over as the radical track comes online.

Featured on the third single off of the soon-to-be-realesed album RTJ2 by Run The Jewels (a duo made up of El-P himself and Atlanta's Killer Mike), Zack de la Rocha comes out swinging with his signature pissed off attitude and a flow as sharp as shrapnel.

Entitled "Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)"...


Zack de la Rocha spits the fiery chorus and finishes the song with a verse that includes militant lines such as "My battle status is burnin' matches from Dallas to Malibu" & "Dump cases with face and the cop pleas when we seizing a pump." The Rage Against the Machine spitter also gives a shoutout to Rakim ("Ripped like Rakim Allah, feds is checkin' my melody") as well as a the late political author, Philip K. Dick ("Done dyin', Phillip AK Dickin' you").

Rage Against the Machine guitarist, Tom Morello, took up arms with those demonstrating against the rampant police violence in a heavy new track titled "Marching on Ferguson." The bluesy riff pays tribute to the protest songs of years before while Morello's signature shredding lends a modernly violent feel.
