Run The Jewels Biography
Featuring two of the most distinctive, uncompromising and genre-pushing names in hip-hop, Run
The Jewels are the unlikely dream team of Brooklyn MC/producer El-P and Atlanta rapper Killer
Mike. No stranger to the collaborative side-project, having been a member of East Coast outfit The
Weatherman and art collective Cardboard City, El-P first teamed up with Killer Mike in 2012 when he
produced his critically-acclaimed sixth studio effort, R.A.P. Music. Killer Mike then returned the favor
later that year when he guested on El-P’s third album, Cancer 4 Cure, and shortly after, the pair
decided to hit the road together with the release of Run The Jewels tickets for the Into The Wild
tour. Named after a line in L.L. Cool J’s “Cheesy Rat Blues,” the duo then continued to build up the
demand for Run The Jewels tickets with their 2013 self-titled debut. Released through Fool’s Gold
Records, the album featured collaborations with pioneering producer/rapper Prince Paul and Big
Boi, the latter of whom helped give Killer Mike his big break in 2000 when he invited him to appear
on Outkast’s 2000 release, Stankonia. Fans looking to get their hands on Run The Jewels tickets had
the chance to see the pair in action when the duo joined the likes of Duck Sauce, A$AP Ferg and
Danny Brown at Brooklyn’s Williamsburg Park as part of the annual Day Off Festival, before
audiences Down Under snapped up Run The Jewels tickets for a series of St. Jerome’s Laneway
Festival shows. In 2014, the appetite for Run The Jewels tickets increased further when sophomore
Run The Jewels 2, which featured guest appearances from the likes of Rage Against The Machine
frontman Zach de la Rocha, Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker and Three 6 Mafia rapper Gangsta Boo,
charted at No.50 on the Billboard 200. The record’s success inspired the pair to release Run The
Jewels tickets for a North American tour which featured sets at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest, Denver’s
Mad Decent Block Party and San Francisco’s Outside Lands as well as a co-headlining Salt Lake City
show with Wu Tang Clan, while Run The Jewels tickets also sold in their droves for the band’s first
major European tour which visited the likes of London, Paris and Copenhagen. The pair then
announced plans to record a bizarre remix album composed entirely of cat sounds, before
performing to thousands of fans with Run The Jewels tickets for a second string of dates across
Australia and New Zealand.
