Run the Jewels, the popular rap duo featuring outspoken Atlantan Killer Mike, will embark on their first full-scale North American headlining tour since 2015 beginning this January. It comes in support of their forthcoming third album RTJ3, the release date for which has yet to be announced.
The tour will kick off Jan. 11th in Philadelphia, and will stop at Atlanta’s Tabernacle ten days later, Jan 21st, before crossing over to the west coast and back, finally wrapping up Feb. 25th at New York City’s Terminal 5.
In conjunction with the tour announcement, the Xbox game Gears of War unveiled its playable Run the Jewels characters for the Versus Multiplayer and Horde 3.0 platforms. This is the first time two recording artists have been reimagined as playable characters in the Gears of War franchise or any Xbox game.
The first single from RTJ3, “Talk to Me,” debuted on Oct. 24th through Adult Swim’s promotional singles program.
