In this corner you have the greatest rap duo of all-time, Outkast. In the other corner, the most exciting, bombastic rap duo of the 2010, Run The Jewels. Put them together in one room and watch social media observer’s head’s explode. Last night, Killer Mike and El-P took to both Instagram and Twitter and shared a couple of different photos of themselves kicking it in a backstage are with Andre 3000 and Big Boi. Needless to say, the Internet went off.
Of course, as soon as the real hip-hop heads caught a glimpse of the pictures, they immediately began begging for some time of collaboration between both parties; whether it be a tour or an album together.
Of course, those who are in touch with the history of Atlanta hip-hop know that Killer Mike’s ties with Outkast go way, way back. Mike came up in the game through the iconic Dungeon Family. He also got his first big shine in the business through his guest first on Outkast’s hit single “The Whole World,” and has recently been back in the studio with Big, working with him on his upcoming solo album. You can hear the fruits of their labor, the new single “Kill Jill” below.
