Killer Mike and El-P were last seen wearing the Nike Dunks during a recent performance in Mexico City. The duo is currently promoting their new remix album, RTJ CU4TRO, which features Latin artists including Akapellah, Baco Exu Do Blues, the Mexican Institute of Sound, Sarah La Morena, Trooko and more.
El-P gave a statement about the album upon its release in October.
“It’s a reimagining of RTJ4 through the lens of collaboration and a fusing of numerous musical cultures and influences … a rare chance for us to connect, create and be inspired by/with people who we may never have had the chance to get down with if we weren’t lucky enough to be in a position to put it all together.”
