Killer Mike, El-P Release <i>Run The Jewels</i> as Free Download

Last year’s critically acclaimed R.A.P Music seems to have solidified Killer Mike and El-P as a knockout duo. The pair put out one of last year’s most beloved hip-hop albums, propelling the former Outkast collaborator to new heights with the help of El-P’s stellar production.

In the past few weeks the two have been slowly leaking bits of their latest collaboration Run The Jewels, and yesterday Killer Mike announced via Twitter that the album would be available for free download today.

With features from Big Boi, Prince Paul and Until The Ribbon Breaks, Run The Jewels boasts big names for a free album. Run The Jewels is now available for download from Fool’s Gold along with limited edition vinyl, CDs, t-shirts and “herb grinders.”

Killer Mike and El-P will be going on tour with former Das Racist member Kool A.D and Despot in the fall. Check below for tour dates.
