In the interview el-p confirmed he’s not political as Killer Mike is, and that’s why Killer Mike went to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner alone. Being that Killer Mike is very outspoken on his ideologies, he recently challenged Bill O’Reillyto a debate during an appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO. Killer Mike told Whoo Kid that ship has sailed now. The reasoning for this is that Bill O’Reilly is a cocksucker! Diving deeper into this he states, “How can you say that Hip-Hop is the root of all evil, and then news of you beating your wife surfaces”.
Aside from half of the group being very political, el-p believes that this is just one side of them. “We smoke too much weed not to be funny”, stated el-p. Run The Jewels also go on to speak of their relationship with Nas, and how the signing with Mass Appeal came about. Killer Mike believes that T.I. is an integral part of Hip-Hop helping him in the early part of his career, and also carrying on the legacy of the late Doe B; which his very commendable. Gearing up for their third studio Album together, Run The Jewels say to expect some major surprises!
