Run the Jewels is the hip-hop super-duo of New York, US based rapper/producer El-P and Atlanta, US, based rapper Killer Mike, forming the group in 2013 following the success of prior collaborations.

The pair first started working together in 2012, with El-P producing Killer Mike’s sixth studio album, “R.A.P. Music,” which was released on Williams Street Records. The album was a massive critical success, praised for Killer Mike’s ambitious and powerful lyrics, as well as the ever impressive production from El-P. Their partnership continued that year, when Killer Mike contributed vocals to El-P’s third album, “Cancer 4 Cure,” appearing on the song, “Tougher Colder Killer.”

Off the strength of these collaborations, El-P and Killer Mike decided to form Run The Jewels, signing to Fool’s Gold Records in 2013. They released their eponymous debut in June 2013, releasing it for free as a digital download. It was released in Europe on Big Dada Recordings. The album was a huge success, with many media outlets considering it to be the best hip-hop album of the year, with this partnership establishing a new force in the world of hip-hop.

In October 2014, Run The Jewels returned with their second album, “Run the Jewels 2,” released through Mass Appeal Records. The album again set a new bar for contemporary hip-hop and received widespread critical acclaim. The band jokingly offered to create a remix album of their second release made up entirely of cat sounds for $40,000. Soon after, a fan started a Kickstarter campaign which quickly raised $65,000 for the project, forcing the duo to follow through with a promise to create “Meow the Jewels.”
