Run the Jewels 2 by Run the Jewels


“We all dead, fuck it…”

As regular readers will be aware, I write for a site called Forty5 on an infrequent basis. Here’s my latest piece for them, Run the Jewels 2 from the hip-hop duo of Killer Mike and El-P (known as Run the Jewels).


It’s a brilliant hip-hop album that is another contender for Album of the Year alongside Familiars from The Antlers, You’re Dead! by Flying Lotus, Our Love by Caribou and Lost in the Dream by The War on Drugs and a great album that represents where 2014 hip-hop really is (or at least, should be).
