For two years, RTJ worked on the album and recorded it at Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La Studios in California and Electric Lady Studios in New York.

Two singles have been released from the album – “Yankee and the Brave (Ep. 4)” and “Ooh La La” (featuring DJ Premier and Greg Nice).

RTJ is set to tour with Rage Against the Machine for a tour that has been rescheduled for 2021 (so far, Raleigh is the closest date to Atlanta).

Along with their new music, RTJ is also launching a cannabis line in collaboration with the founder of the Cookies strain.
