Run the Jewels: Run The World Tour
The Gaslamp Killer
Gangsta Boo
Nick Hook :: Cuz

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 last year. 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), Run The Jewels cemented their musical alliance with a set of uncompromisingly raw, forward thinking hip-hop, garnering limitless critical accolades including the likes of Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, XXL, SPIN, New York Times, and many more.

In 2012, El-P produced Killer Mike's critically acclaimed album R.A.P. Music. Later that year, Killer Mike appeared on the track "Tougher Colder Killer" from El-P's Cancer 4 Cure. The following year they officially formed the duo "Run the Jewels", with an album under Fool's Gold Records announced for later in the year. They released their self-titled first album titled Run the Jewels, as a free digital download. The duo announced they would begin recording the highly anticipated sequel to their debut in February 2014, after a series of Australian live dates as part of St Jerome's Laneway Festival.
