Run The Jewels Attacked During SXSW 2015 Performance
Run The Jewels had an eventful evening yesterday (Mar. 16) while performing at Spotify House for this year’s SXSW Festival. The duo was attacked on stage, and the encounter was caught on camera.
The video shows a man going after El-P on stage while Killer Mike chases him off. It gets pretty real as fans and security surround the scuffle in an attempt to break it up. At one point, it looks like the attacker began to fight fans in retaliation of them trying to end the original scuffle. Security ended up knocking the attacker out, ending the fight altogether.

Killer Mike didn't take too kindly to the situation; he got back on stage and started a “fuck boy” chant pertaining to the man who attacked them. Once the situation was handled, RTJ jumped back on stage to continue their performance. Clearly nothing can keep them down, especially with loyal fans like those.

El-P, later, took to Twitter apologizing for the interruption and thanking their team for backing them up.
thanks to everyone who watched us rock the @Spotify house! sorry for the brief interruption.
