Two of the most recognizable and influential rap acts of the decade are coming to Dallas — and somehow, impossibly, they’re co-headlining the same tour. Joined by hot newcomer Denzel Curry, Run the Jewels and Danny Brown descend on the South Side Ballroom in what is sure to be one of the most anticipated hip-hop events of the year. Brown’s wordy histrionics and RTJ’s clever, politically charged fury might not seem like an obvious match at first, but if the history of rap has taught us anything, it’s that putting talented emcees in the company of one another almost always renders fascinating results. With Brown and RTJ both touring behind incredible new full-lengths — The Atrocity Exhibition and Run the Jewels 3, respectively — there will be plenty of fuel backing this tour. Amid Brown’s melancholic, sharply witty pensiveness and RTJ’s seamless chemistry, this show promises plenty of surprises, plenty of fireworks and plenty of satisfied concertgoers.
