What up ninjas? We're really excited to be bringing you the seventh edition of The Hip-Hop Dojo. This week's collection leans a little towards the younger side, with a terrific assortment of raw, up and coming artists and burgeoning underground acts. We start things off on a rather mellow note, as Daily Auston and Joey Purp "do their thang" on the compulsory SAVEMONEY track of the week. The Chicago collective is constantly working to provide us with quality material week after week, and I don't think I've ever been disappointed with their product. We then [...]
Producer/rapper El-P and Killer Mike have come together as a duo, calling themselves Run The Jewels . First Watch The Throne and now this. Two great albums between the pair last year must have made the push for Run The Jewels to exist. The hype level grows with 'Get It,' the first song released under the RTJ moniker. El-P's production is as right-brained as ever, this time throwing an '80s break-beat into a [...]
El pasado 2012 fue muy fructífero por parte de El-P y Killer Mike , no obstante sacaron dos de los LPs que mas he escuchado del pasado año, "Cancer4Cure" y "R.A.P Music" , por lo que habrá que vigilar atentamente los movimientos de esta dupla, que prepara conjuntamente un nuevo proyecto, Run The Jewels , con álbum homónimo para junio y este tema, “Get it” , como aperitivo.
First track from the free album by El-P and Killer Mike to be released in conjunction with their Run The Jewels tour, a sequel to last year's Into the Wild Tour, on Fool's Gold. See dates in graphic above (d'uh...) [via Pitchfork ]
Rappers El-P and Killer Mike have formed a side project known as Run The Jewels, which will headline The EchoPlex on Thursday, August 1. Tickets for the 21+ show will go on sale this Saturday, May 4, at 12:00 p.m....
Separately, El-P and Killer Mike released two of the best albums of 2012, and it was no coincidence that El-P produced Mike's R.A.P. Music . Now the unlikely duo are poised to release a free mixtape called Run The Jewels . "Get It" is the first taste, and in the words of El-P , it's overly fuckin' awesome. Though they're giving away Run The Jewels , El-P and Killer Mike are [...]
Hip hop artists / rappers EL-P and Killer Mike have formed a collaborative partnership as Run the Jewels, recording an album and going on tour this summer. The Fool's Gold duo have shared the first single, called "Get It," from their self-titled effort as a free download on the label's Soundcloud . In fact, the entire album will be free when it is released this June. "Run the Jewels" isn't the first time EL-P and Killer Mike have worked together: Killer Mike's 2012 record R.A.P. Music was produced by [...]
by Andrew Sacher DOWNLOAD: Run the Jewels - "Get It" (MP3) El-P in Austin in 2012 ( more by Tim Griffin ) As mentioned , Killer Mike and El-P , who previously teamed up with El-P produced Killer Mike's 2012 album R.A.P.

"Those who handlin' damage control don't wish us the best luck" Jaime Meline contends atop a raggedy throwback beat on the first gem to be unearthed from El-P's newly polished escapades alongside Atlanta rap titan and human "Gatling" gun Killer Mike, as the duo combine to become Run The Jewels . And the New Yoiker ain't wrong, for Get It makes for a typically insurgent introduction to what may well transpire to prove an again propitious collaboration, as a faux rap battle rallying against the hackneyed tropes of bling, women, blah blah blah to have long since afflicted hip hop ensues [...]
El-P and Killer Mike have released new track 'Get It' under the moniker of Run the Jewels , in advance of their collaborative album (released in June). 'Get It' has been described as having "monstrous" beats which just about sums it up. This boisterous, snarling track is an early indication of just how good their collaborative album is going to be. Killer Mike's R.A.P Music , produced by El- P in 2012 was insanely good and by the sounds of it, they're only getting better. El-P and Killer Mike will be [...]
El-P and Killer Mike both put out fantastic albums last year, for 2013 they've decided to team up and form Run The Jewels. The album will be coming out in June and will be free! This is one of my most anticipated releases this year! Expect a full review when the album drops, in the meantime check out the first single Get It ! -Filippo El-P On: Facebook | Twitter Killer [...]
Longtime collaborators make it official with the announcement of new s/t Run The Jewels project. "Get It" sounds quite like what you'd expect (or have already listened to 100x) a collab between Run The Jewels members El-P & Killer Mike might sound like that which is a-ok/awesome with us. On "Get It", the menace, the skin-tight rhythms and beeps and bloops that mark the El-P sound fit Killer Mike's crushing, fists up, literate lyricism very very well. Stay tuned for the LP. Run The Jewels - Get It [...]
El-P & Killer Mike , frequent collaborators + two of the most celebrated names in rap in their own right, confirm rumors of a joint LP + tour today as ‘Run The Jewels’. El-P’s self-produced Cancer 4 Cure reanimated Brooklyn rap last year with his signature lyrical conviction & bruising production; he also handled all of the beats for Mike’s R.A.P. Music LP , which dropped a few weeks earlier. Both won the acclaim of media + fans across the globe & led to 2012’s legendary, hugely successful Into The Wild tour. One [...]
When EL P , the dynamo lo-fi rapper/producer formerly of Company Flow fame, and Killer Mike , the socially aware ATLien lyricist constantly overshadowed by bigger names, teamed up on R.A.P. Music , the result was an unexpected chemistry that bore fruit in the form of one of the year’s best records. Now, the two have further tapped into that chemistry, forming a duo known as Run The Jewels . Their latest song, “Get It”, packs the same rugged punch of their previous work and finds the team settling into being a unit rather [...]
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 House of Representatives how to truly represent, you know how to find me.
Ty Segall at Bumbershoot 2012 / photo by Amber Zbitnoff Today's a big day for Ty Segall , that is if the legendary scuzz garage king can have big days anymore after his many releases, shows, and side projects. First of all his band Fuzz released a video that features the trio playing "Fuzz's Fourth Dream" at Burgerama in LA. The video starts with a little trickle of "Rhapsody in Blue" for whatever reason, before following them to the show. Next up Segall has a new track streaming - "Music For [...]

We've already established that Killer Mike and El-P are cooking up a new batch of dope as a duo called Run The Jewels. Today, we get the first full sampling of the product with the release of "Get It." Also, there's the news that the two will be on the road even more than originally expected so if those "Shoes For Running" dates don't fit the agenda, there's a chance to see them in several other cities. Consider the options. [...]
When it comes to our most anticipated projects for the summer, Killer Mike and El-P 's album as Run The Jewels is pretty high on that list. And it just might take the top spot if the rest of the singles sound as monstrous and straight-up dope as "Get It". The boisterous, Bomb Squad-esque banger will appear on their self-titled full-length, which is apparently dropped for free in June. They're also hitting the road together. You can stream the song and peep the tour dates below. Kool A.D. and Despot will serve as support. [ [...]
One of my favourite producers Darq E Freaker links up with Gita hailing from Oakland, currently New York on this track called 'Mardi Gras'. Gita's a new acquaintance to this site, or well, she was at first until I dug in my inbox for a while and found this track called 'Let That' produced by DJ Two Stacks off Fool's Gold's "Loosies"-compilation. The Duchess describes herself as ghetto rebel girl and well, a mix between Kathleen Hanna and Lil' Kim? I buy it hook, line and sinker. Love 'Mardi Gras' (cop off iTunes here ) and it will be [...]
