Killer Mike and EL-P have put out a video for “Oh My Darling (Don’t Cry) from RTJ2.
Run The Jewels are the most dynamic rap duo on the scene today. Killer Mike and EL-P are very talented on their own, but they really shine together in this RTJ project. The way they play off each other unreal.
“Oh My Darling (Don’t Cry)” is what could be considered a tasteful ‘banger’. The beat is killer and the delivery is on point, although it doesn’t have much in terms of content or solid life lessons to hang on to. This is basically a “I’m a rich badass, deal with it” type of track. That’s OK. Sometimes a fun rap song just needs to be a fun rap song, and this one here is great.
I saw Killer Mike perform in Montreal a few years ago and was blown away by the stamina and showman ship that was on stage for at least 3hrs without much of a break. Next time someone tries to tell you that real hip hop died in the ’90s – forward them some Run The Jewels.
