The Hip Hop duo Run the Jewels have a high-profile spot in the current pop culture zeitgeist. Besides releasing highly acclaimed music, Killer Mike and EL-P have scored high-profile gigs, like touring as the opener for Pop star Lorde and appearing at multi-genre festivals across the globe, and they also ride for everyone from Stephen Colbert to Rick and Morty.

Today, Run the Jewels released “Run the Dibbs,” a mix of their sounds created by legendary Cincinnati Hip Hop DJ/producer Brad Forste, aka Mr. Dibbs. Dibbs, a co-founder of the world-renowned Cincy Hip Hop event Scribble Jam and locally-based Hip Hop turntablist crew 1200 Hobos, has previously worked with well known Hip Hop artists like Atmosphere, Buck 65 and RtJ’s EL-P. Dibbs has also been known to join RtJ on stage.

“Run the Dibbs” is a sprawling, head-spinning collage that reimagines Run the Jewels in Dibbs’ crafty, estimable style.

Here's the text that came with the RtJ email accompanying the download link:

Oh snap! We're proud to present a brand new mix from the one and only Mr. Dibbs! The man goes way back with us and has been a heavyweight in the DJ / Turntablist scene for years. If you don't know, we highly suggest you get acquainted.  

With his Oppositional Defiant Disorder on full tilt and a round hole/square peg mentality for destroying beautiful things...

Lend me your ears...

Ten minutes...

The purpose ..a reinterpretation where rules don't apply, pitch becomes a weapon and production standards don't exist...
