As I said on the Twitter, Run the Jewels is the anti-Watch the Throne. Two super villains looting the homes of out of touch millionaires who destroy Maybach’s for fun. I should have probably added that they will murk anyone who disturbs Mr. Killums. To paraphrase Samuel L. in Pulp Fiction: never mess with another […]
Doc Zeus is okay with Anthony Bennett too. Looking back on the past fifteen years of hip hop, one of the biggest blown opportunities was that the misguided dogma of mainstream and independent hip hop fans prevented a generation of talented performers from collaborating. A self-imposed segregation of the genre helped stifle overall creativity, create […]
Nothing says Friday afternoon like some “Riverdance on your Face with cleats music.” My favorite part of this song is the end when they start trading bars and you realize, oh shit, they have become a group and are not just two respectively great solo artists rapping. They are basically making people sit up and […]
If you hopped in the Delorean and warped back to ’97 and told me that Daddy Fat Sacks of the honorable ATLiens would be collaborating with the man with ye olde lyrics of fire from Company Flow, I would have turned in my driver’s license, knowing that this song would eventually cause me to get […]
El-P & Killer Mike Get It April 29, 2013
Remember that thing earlier where I said that Fantasy Draft rap collaborations rarely work out. This Run the Jewels cut from El-P and Killer Mike is pretty much the exact opposite of that statement. If anyone wants to finance my screenplay about these two winning congressional races and going to Washington D.C. to teach the […]
“Run the Jewels” is the new name for the assault rifle rap duo of El-P and Killer Mike. El was saying last night on Twitter how he watched Killer Mike freestyle an entire record. So you can probably assume that this was freestyled. You can also assume that almost everything they say is gospel, considering […]
Had YouTube existed when I was in college, I would have memorized every single word of this cypher. At least, the El-P, Slug, and Aesop verses. I was never a big fan of Immortal “WARFARE IN THE JUNGLES OF GUATEMALA” Technique. There’s no tape date here and no concrete location, other than that they are […]
Don’t ask me what Universal is thinking. We’re better off being happy that for once, a corporation isn’t focused on negatively warping creation. Mr. MFN eXquire never struck me as a mainstream rap star. Even if he wouldn’t interpret that as a compliment, it’s meant to be. Husky BK rappers with a love of Def […]
In which the Into the Wild Tour meets the Canuck eccentric interview king. El gets a Criminal Minded USB chain, a Biz Markie doll, Fat Boys vinyl, and reveals that his business card says: he’s white, but he’s dope.

The first draft of this post was vaporized by my computer. When I attempted to restore it, it took me to an all black screen where words started typing themselves out. “Passion of the Weiss,” it read, “you have entered the matrix. Take the white pill.” Then the screen flashed and it took me to […]
