‘Shadow the Jewels’ | DJ Skarface Mixes Run the Jewels and DJ Shadow

In wake of Run the Jewels’ latest project RTJ3, Atlanta’s own DJ Skarface cleverly reestablishes RTJ’s self titled debut project by mixing it with beats from DJ Shadow. Thus creating a 20-minute mix titled “Shadow the Jewels.”

“Making these mixes is just a way of further exploring the music that I listen to myself. DJ Shadow was one of the first DJs I discovered that really lived up to the “DJ” title and he inspired me to embrace the craft of mixing and scratching. Without him, I would not have bought my turntables. Run The Jewels just reminds me of why I became a Hip Hop fan to begin with. The beats, rhymes, and energy that they capture represents everything Hip Hop should be to me.” – DJ Skarface

The mix has also garnered the attention of Killer Mike, one half the Run the Jewels duo.
