Two of the voices in hip hop that still have a very strong presence in that gray area where social injustice, cultural responsibility and good music meet stopped by Sway in the Morning to touch on all three plus some. We are talking about none other than Killer Mike and El-P, better known by adoring fans as Run The Jewels.
The talented duo took time to discuss the motivation behind Killer Mike wanting to run for office in Atlanta, his appearance on Bill Maher plus the Rachel Dolezal situation while trying to spark actionable steps away from apathy and more towards the responsibility of creating change. But, don’t think the music was ignored in any way as they broke down the lyrics to “Early” and shared news of an international tour that boasts more than 40 dates between festivals in the UK to a city near you.
