8 pm., Sunday July 28 | $18 advance, $20 day of show.
Hawthorne Theatre
1507 SE 39th Ave.
 
[DEATH RAP] Southern MC Killer Mike and Brooklyn producer-rapper extraordinaire El-P have become the Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez of hip-hop, teaming together to create beautifully gruesome and destructive works of art that are as entertaining as they are disturbing. The duo collaborated on each of its last solo albums and has now come together for a proper group release in Run the Jewels, one of the best hip-hop releases of the year thus far. Mike goes absolutely ape shit over El-P’s bass-y, synth-laced death-star beats. Even better, Mike and El often switch bars back and forth, grabbing their crotches and spitting about their greatness while honoring the traditions of vintage hip-hop. It’s the most fun you’ll have with a rap album in quite some time. And word is, their live shows are just as entertaining.
