In the wake of last night's election results, Run the Jewels have shared a new song, "2100." The song was apparently recorded months ago, but for all intents and purposes, it might as well have been written this morning. "2100" is a rallying cry that opens apocalyptically—How long before the hate that we hold lead us to another holocaust? asks Killer Mike in his first few bars—but ends up feeling at least vaguely uplifting.

Mike and El-P shared the song, which features BOOTS, on Soundcloud, along with the following note:

For our friends. for our family. for everyone who is hurting or scared right now. here is a song we wrote months ago. we werent planning on releasing it yet but… well it feels right, now. its about fear and its about love and its about wanting more for all of us. its called 2100. we hope it finds you well.
