Hip-hop is taking to the road this summer with a new tour announced almost daily and many destination festivals featuring eclectic rap bills. Run The Jewels, the duo comprised of Killer Mike and El-P, have recently announced their summer tour schedule which boasts several festivals, including Lollapallooza, Outside Lands and the Mad Decent Block Party among a bunch of other single North American dates. After making a huge splash at the Governor's Ball, the pair will be sharing their charismatic stage show with other parts of the country.
In a recent interview with Okayplayer, Killer Mike confirmed a few full length projects of his own as well as a new Run The Jewels offering, Run The Jewels 2 due out this summer. Since El-P and Killer Mike joined forces with their self titled debut project, they have been a hit, as their long-term camaraderie is apparent in their musical cohesion. Fans can expect some new tracks speckled in with songs from their first album, making for an engaging experience for fans and potential fans alike.
