Run The Jewels Post Powerful Video For “Early”

As 2014 and 2015 have been the biggest years for anti-police brutality protesting in a very long time, El-P and Killer Mike have used their Run The Jewels platform to share their anti-brutality message with the masses. We’ve already seen the extremely emotive video for “Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck),” and the video for “Early” follows suit. This […]

Nina Corcoran Best of 2014

Nina Corcoran’s ‘Best of 2014’ in Music

If there’s anything to be certain of when it comes to music, it’s that you can’t control when it strikes you. In a year filled with violence, racism, disease, and political stumblings, our brains were in overdrive trying to do the right thing. For most, music serves as an escape. It articulates emotions and brings […]

The Music That Moved Me In 2014

This time last year, my life was more hectic than ever before. I was working three jobs, trudging through my final semester of college, and doing my best to prepare for life as a “real adult.” Fatigue was in fashion, uncertainty reigned supreme, and on top of it all, I couldn’t afford to take my […]

Run The Jewels Are The Worst EMTs In New Video For “Blockbuster Night, Pt. 1”

Killer Mike and El-P recently talked to Pitchfork about the unexpected resounding success of Run The Jewels, with Killer Mike even intimating that he was “ready for retirement” before the duo took off. Whether that’s actually true and Mike really would’ve joined the church is a moot point now, although it’s a good thing it […]

Zack De La Rocha, Travis Barker Join Run The Jewels For LA Performance

We’re all loving the new Run The Jewels record over here at UTG. This album feels like a departure from the vast majority of music we’ve heard in the genre this year, largely due to the excellent choice of collaborators. My favorite contributor, Zack De La Rocha, joined the hip-hop duo along with Travis Barker this week for the […]

Run The Jewels And Zack De La Rocha Command You “Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)”

Run The Jewels continue to leave us awestruck, an unstoppable force yet to make a misstep. Rage Against The Machine’s Zack de la Rocha hopped onto the runaway train for “Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)” and he didn’t slow down the machine a bit. His voice, chopped and looped, serves as the track’s […]

El-P and Killer Mike To Release ‘Run The Jewels 2’ In 2014

In the midst of all the Kanye, Eminem, Kendrick, and the like, the best rap-related news to me has to be the fact that Run The Jewels wasn’t just a one-off project release. But with how massive and well-received that release was, how could Killer Mike and El-P not continue on? Taking to Twitter Friday […]
