Run the Jewels Nod to “Blade Runner” with Incredible “Jewel Runner” Tour Poster

Do Rappers Dream of Electric Sheep?

Run the Jewels seem to be constantly trying to outdo themselves. Between back-to-back festival performances, numerous television and university appearances, and a slew of evocative music videos, Killer Mike and El-P have somehow found the time to start work on both their promised feline-friendly remix album Meow the Jewels and the highly anticipated RTJ3. Their tireless, machine-like work ethic begs the question: could they be replicants after all?

On top of all that, the duo just announced the upcoming fall Jewel Runner tour with an incredible poster paying tribute to Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi classic Blade Runner, proving they’re just as excited for the upcoming sequel as we are.


The Jewel Runner tour will take the duo on a new string of lives US dates this fall in support of last year’s phenomenal RTJ2. In addition, El-P and Killer Mike will continue running them jewels along the summer festival circuit, including a stop at FYF Fest in August.
