Run The Jewels – “Yankee And The Brave” (Ep. 4)

I’mma have your whole block hot as a sauna all summer!
And I put that on Osama and my motherf**king momma!


Hard BARZ on a driving beat, with no let-up! Unmitigated gall and summer melon-sized balls right to the end; where Mike slid out on ’em to fight another day, taking out a kid-killing cop on the way out!

Don’t Walk! Run The Jewels… NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert (Video)

Let the E&J and lyrics and booming beats FLOW! RTJ on NPR for an intimate, but no-less-energized [Tiny Desk] Concert with rhyme buddies El-P and Killer Mike. Okay, in case you don’t follow Run The Jewels… have any kids leave the F**KING room NOW! Liquor and lyrics laced with profanity and adult dopeness. Party time! Let’s GO!

Mina Tavakoli | February 6, 2017 — Like any good pair of twins, Run the Jewels have a freaky sort of unspoken fraternity. When El-P and Killer Mike strode in with their usual uniforms — Mike in a gold chain as thick as a garter snake, El in a fitted Yankees cap and pair of blue-mirrored sunglasses — the two didn’t have to do as much as nod to one another before upending three tracks from their latest LP, RTJ3, in strange and perfect symbiosis.

El-P (née El-Producto, née Jaime Meline) — rapper, producer, and all-around godfather of the backpacker scene of the late-90’s — and Killer Mike — known for guest features on tracks by Atlanta’s Dungeon Family in the early-aughts, solo work in the mid-to-late ’00s, and perhaps most widely for his very public support of Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign last year — have out-mused each other in a supergroup that somehow seems to get better, louder, and more pertinent since their start in 2013. They represent an ideal evolution of underground hip-hop to mainstream success, mixing a fundamentally activist animus with IMAX-level production without losing a speck of vital force.

On an unseasonably beautiful day in D.C., Run the Jewels was sweaty and sulfuric, ad-libbing with one another in an exchange so slick, easy, and conspiratorial, it felt like we were in on their shared language.

Run the Jewels 3 is available now!

Run The Jewels In Concert At Boiler Room London (Video)

Confession and evidence of Hip-Hop arson captured right here in 360° video. Killer Mike told the crowd that he and his partner El-P came to burn the UK Boiler Room set to the muthaph#kin’ ground! An hour strong of Run The Jewels on stage getting it in. You know, we’ve seen so much of Mike giving political commentary and stumping for Bernie Sanders for U.S. President, we might have forgotten about his emceeing…

Nah, that wasn’t ever gonna happen. Ha!

Politics: Killer Mike Endorses Bernie Sanders For President (Video)

If you lean to the left (e.g. are likely to vote Democrat in the coming 2016 U.S. election), you should be gathering information and forming impressions NOW. Because before you know it, you will have a decision to make. Every person who has ever run for office has understood that, in order to win, she or he must be supported and admired (and hated) by the right people. So, if you’re thinking Hilary Clinton’s the one, I hope you are learning who is for and against her. Alternatively, if you are taking a hard look at Bernie Sanders – “feeling the Bern” as it were – then you should take a look at the clip above. We KNOW you love Hip-Hop and the Culture if you come to this site often. But maybe “Politics As Usual” has soured you on voting (or even caring). I hope you read my VOTE DAMMIT! posts on here (whether you lean left or right). But maybe they don’t fire you up. But this vid… this vid right here… Just play it. Watch Killer Kill From Adamsville, and it will GIVE YOU BACK YOUR FIRE and make you care about the fight again. In a most powerful way, his speech above makes it clear: Killer Mike Endorses Bernie Sanders, the next President of the United States!

Now sure, you will make your own decision in that ballot box, but a candidate is known and judged by the company she or he keeps; and the enemies she or he makes. Do your research. Who is in who’s corner? What fights is your candidate picking? I’m not sure I completely #FeelTheBern yet, but the temperature is rising.

Oh, and just in case you are thinking this is just more ‘politicking’ peep after the jump. The whole event, including what Bernie Sanders has to say (and eat).

Killer Mike Overwhelmed with Emotion Following the Ferguson Grand Jury Statement In St. Louis (Video)

Riots are only the language of the unheard.
Killer Mike

Killer Kill from Adamsville gets it: The sentiments expressed so perfectly by Jay Smooth (posted on earlier here) are revisited so emotionally by Hip-Hop’s proud son, Killer Mike. In St. Louis (Missouri, USA) with his homie El-P to rock a Run The Jewels set, he heard the news out of Ferguson, Missouri [that no action will be taken against the officer that killed Mike Brown] – and like many on the scene – it rubbed him so raw he was hurt, was scared, was angry, was feeling retaliatory (ready to burn something down)… BUT… Mike hugged it out, cried it out, talked it out, got on stage and let it out. AND TORE THAT M#THERF#CKER DOWN!!!

Tonight I got kicked on my ass… You m#therf#ckers got me today. I have a 20 year son. I have a 12 year old son. And I am so afraid for them… These m#therf#ckers got me today. But with that said, you m#therf#ckers will not own tomorrow!
Killer Mike

Watch the video-taped confessional turn into a high-energy Hip-Hop Revival up in the spot. Revolution energy being channeled. Prepare before you press play; a tissue for one hand… while balling the other into a fist and raising it in solidarity.

This is Hip-Hop. GO!
