Run The Jewels: S/T 12"

Mass Appeal


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 in 2013.  Tapping into the creative synergy they’d discovered in 2012 on Mike’s R.A.P. Music album (produced by El-P) and El’s Cancer 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.  Ten tracks of speaker obliterating beats and razor sharp verses, laced with searingly honest emotion and pitch black humor not to mention guest appearances by Big Boi, Until the Ribbon Breaks and Prince Paul.
