Run The Jewels are currently touring North America’s finest hockey arenas alongside Lorde, which might explain why the duo of Killer Mike and El-P do not appear in their latest music video, for the RTJ3 track “Oh Mama.” Instead, they’ve lined up a suitable pair of replacements: Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith, stars of … More »

2018 is looking like it’ll be a solid year for Run The Jewels.
They’re officially set to head out and support Lorde on her upcomingtour and were recently featured on BOOTS’ new EP, #DARKDAZE.
Though the track, “Delete Delete,” is a bit of an uninspired take on modern R&B, much of the track’s stagnancy lies in its lyrics, which is ultimately outside of the hip-hop duo’s control. Perhaps its only saving grace, the duo bring forth an effervescent effort with crackling lyrics.
Run The Jewels have also announced a continuation in their entry into the craft beer market. After last year’s “Stay Gold” IPA, named after a track off their Run the Jewels 3 album, El-P and Killer Mike have announced the “Panther Like a Panther” Stout, which is set to drop later this month.
A “Legend Has It” Pilsner will also released in April with a “Down” Double IPA to be released in October.
BOOTS, the producer best known for working with Beyoncé a few years ago, has released a new EP called #Darkdaze that includes a song with a feature from Run The Jewels and Cristin Milioti and guitar playing contributions from Nick Zinner. That song, “Delete Delete,” and the rest of the EP can be heard below. More »

El-P and Killer Mike’s second album, RTJ2, was our top album of 2014 and their surprise drop of RTJ3 a few Christmases ago was the gift we all needed at the end of 2016. This weekend the hip-hop supergroup will be on an episode of Austin City Limits where they’ll perform tracks from … More »
I wrote the last one of these columns almost a month ago, so this is really the five best videos of the last three weeks. Don’t worry, though. Not that many videos came out during the holiday, and most of the ones that did come out weren’t that good. Some of them were, though, including … More »
