The hip hop group featuring Killer Mike and El-P are on top of the rap charts with their newest album, Run the Jewels 3. The boys will be performing March 14 at 8pm at The Fillmore in Charlotte. Tickets are $34.50 plus applicable fees. They can be purchased here.
Run the Jewels was formed in 2013. The two rappers were introduced by Adult Swim executive Jason DeMarco in 2011. The meeting led to several collaborations, including Killer Mike being featured on the song “Tougher Colder Killer” from Cancer 4 Cure while El-P produced the entirety of Killer Mike’s sixth album R.A.P. Music.
When R.A.P. Music and Cancer 4 Cure were released within weeks of each other, a joint tour was planned. The success of the tour eventually led to the formation of Run the Jewels.
