The super Hip-Hop duo Killer Mike & El-P as Run The Jewels are a match made in Hip-Hop heaven. Both are skilled emcees, with El-P handling the dope production. But that’s not all, they impart humor, socio-cultural analysis, and life advice as well. In the recent past we’ve seen things from big name artist like Jay-Z and R Kelly’s Best of Both Worlds, and Kanye & Jay-Z’s Watch The Throne. Not to mention lesser known duo’s like KRS-One and Buck Shot as Survival Skills, or Kool G Rap and Necro as The Godfathers. Having two talented veteran emcees who are marginally known come together to form a duo, Run The Jewels are on to something that we’ll see happen more in Hip-Hop, super groups or duos. It’s good to see veterans and legendary Hip-Hop artists coming together to form super projects (not a one album thing too), as we recently seen with Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes: The Abstract and The Dragon. Here are some clips and interviews, where Killer Mike and El-P drop isms on you. Don’t forget to check out Run The Jewels self-titled debut album, Killer Mike’s R.A.P. Music (produced by El-P) and El-Producto’s Cancer 4 Cure.
