Rap duo Run the Jewels will celebrate the tenth anniversary of its self-titled debut album with four-night runs in four cities including El-P‘s hometown of New York City and Killer Mike‘s native Atlanta as well as Chicago and Los Angeles. The pair will perform one of its four albums in full at each show.
“It’s mind blowing to us that it’s been 10 years since we joined forces as RTJ,” the duo said. “The best way we can think to celebrate is to get the whole family together and do what we love for the people who love us back. It’s going to be amazing, just like this entire ride has been, and we are grateful to get a chance to celebrate with our jewel runners this year and finally get back into clubs to destroy some stages for you. We’re doing 4 cities, 4 nights each, and 4 full albums worth of jams, many we have only performed a small handful of times during our whole existence. So on night one it’s RTJ1 in full plus many more songs from the other records, night two it’s RTJ2… etc. etc. We can’t wait to get out there and see you.”
