El-P and Killer Mike, two of the most distinctive and celebrated names in rap, might have seemed like an unlikely pairing
on paper, but the duo subverted and pulverized all expectations with their critically lauded Run The Jewels collaborative
LP. Tapping into the creative synergy they’d discovered in 2012 on Mike’s R.A.P. Music album (produced by El-P) and El’sCancer
4 Cure album (featuring Mike ), plus subsequent tours together, Run The Jewels cemented their musical alliance with an album
of uncompromisingly raw, forward thinking hip-hop and garnering limitless critical accolades.
