From Danger Mouse and MF Doom’s DANGERDOOM to Murs and Slug’s Felt project, hip-hop is no stranger to collaborative projects. Definitive Jux label-head/rapper El-P and Atlanta rapstar Killer Mike are the latest rap comrades to pool their creative juices together for their new hard-hitting summer banger, Run The Jewels. The 10-track album features guest appearances from Big Boi of Outkast, the genre-bending UK R&B/electronic band Until The Ribbon Breaks and Prince Paul.
