They were each already well known on their own: EL-P (Brooklyn’s Jaime Meline) for his work with Company Flow and solo albums filled with entertainingly dense lyrics over lo-fi but powerful production; and Killer Mike (Michael Render, out of Atlanta) for an association with OutKast and his political, tough-talking Dirty South hardcore rap. But the two teamed up in 2012, EL-P producing Killer Mike’s R.A.P. Music (stream it below, top) and the latter guesting on the former’s Cancer for Cure (stream it below, bottom). Fortunately, that was just the beginning. Together they formed Run the Jewels earlier this year and then released a heavily acclaimed (and free download) eponymous full-length. Pitchfork, which gave the album its Best New Music label, declared: “It’s just a distilled take on everything that made last year’s albums such an event, with all the chrome ripped off and upholstery pulled out so it’ll run faster, louder, nastier.” Consequence of Sound weighed in, saying the LP “is the very synthesis of EL-P and Mike’s shared admiration
and cohesive worldviews, an effort of the purest collaboration and mutual understanding. Now, let your heart fill with love and bang your damn head up and down.” EL-P and Killer Mike play Webster Hall tonight.
