A dream collaboration that became a tangible reality in 2013, Run the Jewels is the brainchild of well-established solo MCs Killer Mike and El-P. The duo’s self-titled album hit the Internet, available as a free download, that same year, ensuring that the debut streamed its way into as many ears as possible. Together, the rappers form a lyrical bond as Killer Mike’s speedy but syrupy verses collide with El-P’s fast and furious wordplay. Across three records and multiple tours, Run the Jewels has made pop culture political — and politics a necessary part of the musical conversation. Recently featured as guest players on the typically stuffy National Public Radio program Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me!, Killer Mike and El-P proved that beyond the recording studio and the stage, these rapping minds think alike and work well together, even when they’re being asked questions about the Ten Commandments or the Mannequin Challenge.
