RTJ4 is the critically acclaimed new album from Run The Jewels. Each album features an iteration of their iconic Pistol and Fist logo. The logo has been embraced and transformed by the RTJ community since its inception, appearing in every form of art from sculpture to city-wide murals to tattoos.

More from creative director / photographer Tim Saccenti:

“The challenge with RTJ was how to evolve such iconic imagery and place it in a modern dimension. That next dimension was 3D, created with designers Team Rolfes, myself, and EL-P. During the process of designing what finally became the cover art, scores of iterations of 3D models were made.

The process of moving from two dimension to three dimensions, and four, counting time, was a reflection of the amazing art we’ve seen created in the last few years by a new generation of multi-media and 3D artists. We also realized we could embrace the spirit of the RTJ fans by having the designs be “handed over” to them to go crazy and blow our minds.

Show us you hands!”
