Killer Mike and El-P will make their way to Ireland for their sold out gig in Opium Rooms, Dublin on December 21st, with support from God Knows & mynameisjOhn. In anticipation of the gig, I’ve compiled a list of my favourite Run The Jewels tracks. Let us know if you think we left anything out in the comments.
– Run The Jewels
This self titled track was a mission statement from the two and also set the tone for their debut album.
– A Christmas Fuckin Miracle
Also from their debut album, this track definitely ranks high in my favourite Christmas songs of all time.
-Blockbuster Night Part 1
The first track released from RTJ2 features both emcees trading verses over El-P’s stomping production.
-Close Your Eyes & Count To Fuck
Featuring Zack De La Rocha from Rage Against the Machine, this song sums up the overall political themes explored on RTJ2.
Both Mike & El-P deliver some their best work with these two verses. A masterclass in songwriting and storytelling & also a song that grows frighteningly more relevant each day.
