Run the Jewels is a duo consisting of EI-P, coming out of NY, and Killer Mike, hailing from Atlanta. After collaborating on a couple songs for each other they formed the group. Since then these two have been pumping out some hardcore material that would make NWA proud. Check out their relatively new track off Run the Jewels 2 featuring Zack De La Rocha of Rage Against the Machine, Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck).
If you’re new to Run the Jewels, they have released their first studio album Run the Jewels (2013) for free digital download. Both their albums are phenomenal albums in my opinion. Their hard spitting flows, fuck the system campaign, and unique take on hip hop beats formulate a unique sound the game has been missing for a while. You won’t be hearing them over the radio waves any time soon but don’t sleep on them.
Run the Jewels 3 is scheduled for 2016! In the mean time peep these awesome music videos.
