“F–k it, why wait? The world is invested with bullsh-t, so here’s something raw to listen to while you deal with it all,” the group said in a statement Wednesday (June 3) regarding their surprise release. “We hope it brings you some joy. Stay safe and hopeful out there and thank you for giving 2 friends the chance to be heard and do what they love. With sincere love and gratitude, Jamie and Mike.”

El-P doubled down on the group’s statement by posting the following on Instagram: “it’s here. its our hearts, humor,anger+love of hip hop music. we hope it moves you, makes you smile, makes you dance, makes you think, and makes you nod your head. ❤️❤️❤️ ❤️UPDATE: aaaaand the site is crashed. while we work to bring it back up for anyone who wants the free download it is also available on all streaming platforms to hear. ❤️

The album is available for free downloads now, but RTJ is encouraging fans to add a donation to the National Lawyers Guild Mass Defense Fund. Shortly after announcing that the streaming version of album had arrived, El-P shared that after 45 minutes, fans had already donated more than $10,000 to charity.
