Nuff said actually when they've earlier proven their great projects together, as seen on last years "R.A.P. Music". I love this, more, give us more of this. A duo that actually stands-out and fight each other with hungry verses, something the mainstream scene is missing out. An album like "Watch The Throne" just ended up boring at the end of the day, with too much "I'm giving you this, look I'm at the top just bragging about the dough I've got, *non competitive* with this poppy ass hook" and less "I'm going out with this raw verses, I'm the best, try and get me". See and learn, Killer Mike and El-P got this, their chemistry between each other is better than the most, that is what matter at the end.
"Run The Jewels" is a fantastic record!… Expand
Jul 3, 2014Man, Killer Mike went from being an above average Atlanta rapper to amazing in a very short time. Not as good as 2012's RAP Music, Run theMan, Killer Mike went from being an above average Atlanta rapper to amazing in a very short time. Not as good as 2012's RAP Music, Run the Jewels is still a worthy successor. The production from track to track is similar enough to make the album cohesive, but not similar enough to sound repetitive.
El-P and Mike have very different styles, but they complement each other in all the right ways, even though Mike seems to be more in the forefront of the vocals than El-P is, El-P still contributes largely to what makes this such a great album.
Also, they released it for free, so what are you waiting for? LISTEN!… Expand
Jul 7, 2013A collaboration of producer/rapper El-P and rapper Killer Mike is likely the best hip hop album of the year. The flow between the two in mostA collaboration of producer/rapper El-P and rapper Killer Mike is likely the best hip hop album of the year. The flow between the two in most every track (esp. Run the Jewels and Get It) is so fast and clever that you'll be picking up new lines upon multiple listens. No real tracks to skip, and El-P is such a strong producer giving the tracks themselves small nuances requiring a strong speaker system. Blows away anything the other popular Hip Hop tag team is spitting out these days.… Collapse

They're not necessarily trying to prove anything; they just sound like they're having fun in a braggadocious way. This album is filled with awesome hooks and well-written verses by both rappers, and they balance each other out well. It's remarkable that they're so in sync with each other in this way. My only gripe about this album are that the flows can remain similar throughout the album (not to say they're exactly the same). Other industrial rappers like Daveed Diggs of clipping. provide a vast variety of flows throughout their albums, and that gives them the edge. Otherwise, awesome to listen to multiple times, and at high volumes. Love it.… Expand

Un véritable pied de nez au hip-hop industriel etKiller Mike et son important acolyte El-P ont fait naître le duo Run the Jewel en 2013. Un véritable pied de nez au hip-hop industriel et commercial dominant les radios du prêt à écouter. Musicalement, c’est El-P qui offre la plus belle alternative au sein du groupe. Il a oeuvré longtemps dans les sphères ombragées du milieu en plus de travailler le son de sa musique toujours dans le dans le but d’arriver à quelque chose d’alternatif. Killer Mike impose son agressivité en portant ses textes violemment au microphone «- God damn fat bastard, where that **** casket? -But naw baby you gon' get this here vertical -Every word murderful -Surgical, painful, purposeful». Le mixe des deux hommes sur l’album de 33 minutes est certes trop court, mais il nous offre des chansons aux arrangements parfaits de musicalité et de lyricisme.Un album grandement apprécié dans les circonstances où Drake a été considéré par plusieurs comme l’artiste hip-hop s’étant le plus démarqué cette année. Le hip-hop se doit d’être empreint d’une certaine rage et d’une revendication claire et nette.… Expand

There are some parts that feel stale or repetitive before the song's even over ("Job Well Done," "No Come Down") but there are enough interesting beats and fuzzy, heaving basslines to keep most people interested. Highlights: "Run The Jewels," "36" Chain," "A Christmas **** Miracle."… Expand
