August 8th, 2013 - Following the success of their individual releases last year, Killer Mike and El-P have tag teamed the hip-hop world by forming the group Run the Jewels. The duo made a stop in Hell at the Masquerade, along with Kool AD (of Das Racist) and Despot, on Aug. 7. What was already bound to be a great hip-hop show, turned out to be one of the more heartfelt and emotional performances I've witnessed this year.
El-P, backed by a guitarist and a keytar wielding madman named Little Shalimar destroyed the stage with a cutting delivery and high energy. In a brief homecoming of sorts, Killer Mike wanted to let it be known that he loves Atlanta. From bringing his children on stage to sharing the catharsis found in witnessing his grandmother's death, Killer Mike wore his heart on his sleeve while performing some of the hardest hitting songs from his career. After their individual performances, the two joined forces to perform a breathtaking run through their latest self-titled project Run the Jewels. Many claim the album is a return of true hip-hop, and if this set was any indication I'd say they were telling the truth.
