Run The Jewels And Stephen Colter Writer Their Own Halloween Smash Hit 'The Halloween Wiggle'!


Run The Jewels The Late Show With David Letterman Killer Mike

Christmas songs are a staple in the musical calendar, you may even have heard some already this year, but Halloween doesn't get the same love. This was something which Stephen Colbert noted on his talk show and Run The Jewels (aka, Killer Mike and El-P) have righted this wrong with the 'Halloween Wiggle'.

"You know, the one thing that Halloween lacks is that there's no really good Halloween novelty songs," Colbert explained on The Late Show. "There's Monster Mash, but that's like 50-something years old now. We need a new one. Christmas has got all kinds of ones. I recently took the matter into my hands. I got together with my good friends, hip hop impresarios Run the Jewels. We have created what I believe will be an instant holiday classic."

Sam Bennett's Top 10 Hip Hop Albums Of 2014


J. Cole Run The Jewels

Cracker Jon & 2Late - You Can Take The Cracker Out Of Croydon
10) Cracker Jon & 2Late - You Can Take The Cracker Out Of Croydon:
Cracker Jon and 2Late have been tearing down festivals and shows for a good few years, and 2014 finally saw the release of their debut album, released on the UK hip hop powerhouse that is High Focus Records. Cracker's unique and slightly abstract flow, along with his intricate writing combine with 2Late's funky, Redman esque beats, and the styles compliment each other terrifically. Jon tackles a variety of concepts on this album; in fact he tackles a variety within each song, and it's this approach that definitely makes this album stand out. He's one of the most unique MC's from the UK, and the partnership with 2Late is an exciting and promising one, and 'You Can Take The Cracker Out Of Croydon' is a really solid debut project, with a cohesive sound executed to its full potential. 

Kev Brown & Hassaan Mackey - That Grit
9) Kev Brown & Hassaan Mackey - That Grit: 
Rochester MC Hassaan Mackey and Maryland producer Kev Brown collaborate to bring us this absolutely sick album, entitled 'That Grit'. Released in November, this album has constantly been in rotation for me since then; Hassaan's intelligent writing and great presence complement Kev Brown's slick, intricate sampling and consistently dope drums. The Low Budget producer has worked with an array of underground talents, including LMNO, Has-Lo and Raw Poetic, and his production is always incredibly solid. This one might have slipped under the radar, but it's definitely one of my standouts from the year. 

J. Cole - 2014 Forest Hills Drive
8). J. Cole - 2014 Forest Hills Drive:
J. Cole has been around the block. The hype and buzz around him has been there since he first appeared on a mainstream level, and his third album, entitled '2014 Forest Hills Drive' finds him at his most honest, personal, raw and effective. He's responsible for much of the albums production, and it really feels like this was the project he wanted to make. The reception to the album has been excellent; with first week sales of 361,120 in the States, making it the highest selling hip hop album of the year. It's a refreshing body of work in today's climate, with much of commercial rap recycling the same materialistic concepts and subjects we've heard thousands of times before, and it's encouraging that people are engaging with Cole here.
