Trust Us: Run the Jewels at Brooklyn Bowl

MC-run-the-jewels.jpgHip-hop pair Killer Mike and El-P are a force on the scene, with strong themes of toppling oppression, confronting the 1 Percent and singling out injustices in our world. With fire rhymes and a poignant message, they’re raising awareness of inequality while holding others in both music and politicians accountable. Run the Jewels channels the great civil rights activists over sick beats, with their music both a perfect soundtrack to the turmoil in our country and a motivator for positive change and equality. Where a fair share of modern hip-hop lyrics lack intensity and intricacy, Run the Jewels gets back to the roots of storytelling through a skilled flow that will have audiences not only bobbing their heads, but questioning the establishment. With Denzel Curry, Cuz Lightyear. October 20, 8 p.m., $35-$55
