Hip Hop duo Run The Jewels, comprised of emcees Killer Mike and El-P, has never been shy about celebrating their love for cannabis. According to Killer Mike, the group uses a remarkable amount of cannabis during the creative process — roughly six pounds per album.
Over the past few years, Run The Jewels, the duo of long standing MCs Killer Mike and El-P, has released, rapid-fire, a series of political albums that never hesitate to throw a giant middle finger at the status quo and the powers that be.
Along the way, Mike and El-P have made a point of celebrating weed both on and off the mic. Yet unlike other artists that rap about pot in goofy or loose terms, these guys approach it through the lens of activism with acute observation that reflect their staunch progressive and libertarian political positions. Their most recent album, RTJ3, released last December, offers some of their most explicit, hilarious and political allusions to weed yet.
