    Run the Jewels 2 is by far one of the most over-hyped and over-rated albums that I have ever heard. People call this a classic and yet the album failed to top the charts. What a disappointment this album is! The lyrics really aren’t that great. The beats are downright terrible and that’s usually what makes a classic. You people should be ashamed to think this album is worthy of the praise it’s received.

      I don’t think their album needs to top the charts to be a classic cause most of the classic albums in Hip Hop weren’t exactly chart topping. I haven’t heard their album so I don’t know what it sounds like but I think a big reason why people like them is because their music isn’t just dumbed down bullshit which is what alot of the more popular Hip Hop songs these days are.

      Your taste and analysis of artistry is just shitty is the only problem. These two have both been making excellent music for decades. And your criticisms are just off and unfounded.

        Nah the beats are ass.. Even on the first cd. But Mike Bigga almost made this album worth

      • el jim chapo guzman

        Question” How many times you done run your jewels to some low life street punks?

  • the problem with el-ps production is it works with his style of rhyming anybody else sounds like trash mike lyrically is on point but the beat is messing up mikes flow hope next album they ll bring in some better producers that will compliment mikes lyrical talent

      • tell your mother ill be over there later to change the water in her dish

      Have you heard both albums in their entirety? Mike and El-P’s sound complement each other very well.

      • did you listen to that live performance that sounded horrible ive been listening to company flow for 21yrs now when i was 16 so i am very familiar with el -p

        • Goodness Gracious

          I remember the day in July 1997 when I bought Funcrusher Plus on CD from The Virgin Megastore in Times Square. I was listening to Co Flow and Wu Tang Forever back to back. Still bumping Funcrusher till this day!!

          • me too this may sound crazy i still listen to those albums still to this day i swear those albums never get old you got to check out co flow first song juvenile techniques

          • Goodness Gracious

            I know Juvenile Techniques. I remember hearing it on Stretch and Bob back in the day

          • your one of a hand full of people that remembers that track the first run the jewels album was dope this second one im not really feeling as much as the first

          • spliffjones

            thats what a classic album is. when your 50 your going to be playing that album.. classic. its hard for rap to have them come around nowadays.. schoolboy q habits and contradictions is the one from my most recent memory.. kendrick might been section 80 but those two acts both didnt live up to what could have been for their major debut albums.

          • thats true because look at albums are made now you got to have your radio singles you got to have your club banger singles and thats not leaving any room to be creative yeah no doubt i never get tired of listening to those classic albums

    Rap Radar comment section… The vast majority of the comments here reveal a tendency for the deeply uneducated to speak the loudest and most frequent. Run the Jewels is great hip hop. Go read the Pitchfork review. They do a great job explaining why.

  • Dafuq

    This was dope. Good to see them on the national stage. Both albums have been super on point.

  • Goodness Gracious

    Good to see Killa Mike and El-P getting national attention! I was riding with El-P since 96/97 when he was doing Company Flow

  • Curtis75Black

    This is a long time coming !! Seeing Killer Mike on the mainstream stage is dope.
