Run the Jewels Will Open For Lorde's North American Tour

Catch Lorde and Run The Jewels in a city near you.

Run the Jewels have spent this past year extensively touring, and it looks like they’ll be doing some more of that in 2018. It’s been announced that their next job will be opening for Lorde on her upcoming North American tour, which begins on March 1 at Milwaukee. Swedish singer Tove Styrke and Mitski will also join as supporting acts on select dates.

The reveal may be a bit of surprise: Run the Jewels haymaker raps and Lorde’s luscious pop don’t fit together at first glance. But Killer Mike and El-P are veterans and they’ve made themselves comfortable in various settings, including an opening gig for Jack White’s 2015 Madison Square Garden performance. Read their dates with Lorde below.

Suge Knight may be locked behind the G-Wall, but the former hip-hop mogul is attempting to keep the cash flow flowing.

Monday (Oct. 21), TMZ reported that Suge Knight has signed over his life rights to Ray J, with the hopes that the reality television star will create some lucrative deals for the Death Row CEO.

According to the report, a Suge Knight and Death Row Records documentary is in the works, as well as a Tupac album. There are even talks of reviving Death Row Records.

The former CEO was sentenced to 28 years in prison last October after pleading no contest to a charge of voluntary manslaughter for a January of 2015 incident in which he struck and killed 55-year-old Terry Carter and injured Cle "Bones" Sloan in a hit-and-run.

Ray J recently inked a $1 million deal in the cannabis industry and has major investments in the headphones and scooter industries as well.

After missing the Sept. 27 birthday for Jesus is King, Ye has continued to promote the project through his Sunday Service events.

According to Ye's Pastor Adam Tyson, the College Dropout rapper almost quit rap.

"One time, he told me that he wasn't going to rap," Tyson said (check the 23:30 mark). "I said, 'Why not?' He said, 'That's the devil's music.' I said, 'Hey, man. Rap is a genre. You can rap for God.' I think he was already thinking about it a little bit, but I definitely said, 'Hey, bro. I think you need to use your talents that God's given you and use that platform for God.'"

However, Mr. West has had a change of heart, and it looks like Jesus is King will drop the same day as the IMAX film.
