Top of the morning, this mix to your ears is f*cking Folgers.
Run the Jewels is coming to a town near you, bringing truth, justice and the best hip-hop of today. Duo El-P and Killer Mike already tore Letterman a new one over the weekend, and so it’s clear now that the Run the Jewels 2 tour will be the hottest ticket in hip-hop this fall. To get you extra hyped (or console you a bit if you slept and missed your ticket) RTJ’s tour turntablist Trackstar the DJ has put together a mix built upon the work of Mike and El, as well as selections from openers Ratking and Despot. With a kickoff greeting recorded by Killer Mike himself–oh wait, our bad, El-P gets his due, too–you know it’s bound to bang hard. Put your hands where the man can’t see ’em and enjoy this one.
