Run the Jewels – Denver recap
EL-P and Killer Mike equals “Run the Jewels.” And that’s exactly what we did last week at the Ogden Theatre. Run the Jewels is an American hip hop duo formed by New York City-based rapper/music producer El-P and Atlanta-based rapper Killer Mike in 2013. Wow what a awesome night of premium hip hop to say the least!2 nights of absolute madness!
We arrived at the Ogden Theatre relatively early to get a good viewing section and because the Ogden always finishes early. We decided we wanted to view this awesome show from the second tier of the venue. Most of the time we try and get pretty close to the stage or backstage, but we were trying to chill tonight and not go to crazy. We were early enough to catch all the opening acts. Boots, Cuz Lightyear and Fashawn all put on an amazing show but Fashawn took the cake for the openers. Now it was time to Run The Jewels! EL-P and Killer Mike stormed the stage and wasted no time getting things started. Killer Mike says his famous line from Run The Jewels 2.”I’m gonna bang this bitch the fuck out!” That’s when, of course, the self titled track “Run The Jewels” dropped and the crowd went bonkers! I’m pretty sure they played almost every song from albums Run The Jewels 1 and 2. Our personal favorites of the night consisted of tracks “Lie, cheat and steal, Banana Clipper, Get it , Christmas fucking miracle” and last but not least “36’Chain.” There are way too many to name but all the tracks played that night were fire!
We can’t wait till they come back this January in Aspen, Co for the Xgames! Hope to see everyone at this show, it should be mad hype!
