Rappers Killer Mike and El-P teamed up for two albums worth of tracks under the name Run the Jewels. There's also a collection full of remixes made entirely from cat sounds. After creating some of the best hip-hop in the last two years, the duo is now letting fans take a step inside its video for the song "Crown" with a little help from the New York Times' VR app. What's more, Run the Jewels says that this immersive video marks the launch of its virtual reality platform VRTJ. For "Crown," the pair teamed with VR production company WEVR to complete the 360-degree views.

There's just the single video for now, but expect more VR visuals from Run the Jewels in the future. While you can watch a clip in the YouTube video above, you'll have to head over to the NYT VR app to view the whole thing. RTJ has also prepped a special edition Google Cardboard headset for Record Store Day on April 16th.
