Run the Jewels: rewind the jewels

From RNZ Music, 12:30 pm on 17 January 2015


Run the Jewels' Killer Mike and El-P.

While Run the Jewels, the critically lauded rap duo of Atlanta, Georgia native Killer Mike and Brooklyn born and bred MC/producer El-P, is a project only two years deep, their respective back stories cover 20 years of East Coast and Southern hip hop history. Killer Mike and El-P rewind the jewels with Sam Wicks, trawling through their solo back catalogues and offering up commentary on the selections.
