The mystery of their name is enough to draw you in, and finding out the origin only makes them cooler.
Run The Jewels gets you right from the start with their overwhelming lyrical talent, outstanding flow and genius-level creative beats.
Separate, EL-P and Killer Mike were hip-hop cult heroes. Together, they are the superduo in the rap game. And this is not your run-of-the-mill Hall & Oates/Simon & Garfunkel pair with clearly defined leads and second bananas. No siree Bob. They are like Superman and Batman in World's Finest Comics. Equally powerful yet bringing their individual master skills to the table.
Yet with genius usually comes some eccentricity. The videos. The cat-themed album. the Christmas song... but however you feel about them, it's hard to ignore their Liam-Neeson-in-Taken-calibre sets of skills.
That, and the fact they have a theme song!
