Run the Jewels are currently touring on their “Run the World Tour” with CUZ, Nick Hook, Gansta Boo, and The Gaslamp Killer. Their tour is in- tense to say the least. Run the Jewels music helps define some culture today talking about issues such as drugs, po- litical issues, and police violence. One of the members or Run the Jewels know as Killer Mike is a big political activist. He is not only a Bernie supporter but a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement. People from all over Phoenix flocked to see these guys preform. Both floors of the venue packed to the brim, RTJ put on a show for Phoenix to remember. Their unique beats had the crowd bouncing and moving the whole time. Throughout the show small mosh pits occurred that helped influence the chaos of the music. Not only that but with the powerful messages revealed through their music, RTJ was not only throwing down one hell of a show but also showing the youth all the bad and corrupt things that are occurring in the government. That’s what’s powerful about music: that you can be dancing and having a grand time but at the same time be subconscious learning about the evil and hatred in the world. Over- all, I highly recommend catching Run the Jewels at a city near new because they certainly aren’t a show to miss.
