Hip hop artists / rappers EL-P and Killer Mike have formed a collaborative partnership as Run the Jewels, recording an album and going on tour this summer. The Fool’s Gold duo have shared the first single, called “Get It,” from their self-titled effort as a free download on the label’s Soundcloud. In fact, the entire album will be free when it is released this June.
“Run the Jewels” isn’t the first time EL-P and Killer Mike have worked together: Killer Mike’s 2012 record R.A.P. Music was produced by EL-P and EL-P called in Killer Mike to drop some lines on his Cancer for Cure LP.
Tickets for the show at Union Transfer with Despot and Kool AD go on sale Friday, May 3rd at noon. More information will be available here. Stream and download “Get It” below.
