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.

YG Shares Fourth Album Title Ahead Of May Release Date

YG is preparing to bless fans with a highly-anticipated full-length album since he announced its release for May 3. Now, in an interview with Billboard, the "FDT" rapper shared the fourth studio project's name, 4REAL 4REAL.

The 29-year-old artist revealed that being in the studio is where he feels unabashedly free, especially given this tough time since his longtime friend Nipsey Hussle was murdered on March 31. "If I'm not doing music, I feel depressed," he said. "I feel like I ain't sh*t. I like to create, and right now, I know where I want to be, and I know how to get there."

The Compton native's previous album, Stay Dangerous, hosts singles like "Big Bank," "Handgun," and other cuts featuring Jay 305 like "Bulletproof," "Slay" with Quavo," and "Power" featuring Ty Dolla $ign.

"From my first album to my second album, and from my second album to my third album, it took me two years to put out each project," he said. "That wasn't my choice. Life was changing: I got shot, I had a daughter. It was crazy—it took a little longer."

YG's upcoming project was originally slated for a mid-April release, but when the shocking news of Hussle's passing hit, the famed rapper placed a halt on the soundscape's debut. During his first weekend set at Coachella, YG said he was able to push through the performance given his consumption of alcohol. "But my ni**a gone," he said, per HipHopDX. "I got to deal with the sh*t. So I decided to push my album back to May 3."

T.I. Bails 23 Nonviolent Offenders Out Of Jail For Easter

T.I. did a remarkable thing this Easter (April 21). In the true spirit of the holiday, T.I. bailed 23 nonviolent offenders out of the DeKalb County Jail in Georgia.

T.I., Love & Hip Hop's Scrapp Deleon, and the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Ga reportedly worked together to bail out seven women and 16 men who were locked up for first-time or nonviolent offenses. The deed was done as part of the church's "Bail Out" program.

"It's almost like finally meeting the good Samaritan – somebody who you don't know that you didn't see coming," senior Pastor Dr. Jamal Bryant said good deed. "They're appreciative to be able to press the refresh button."

The philanthropic work doesn't stop after the men and women are released, however. The "Bail Out" program also connects the newly-released citizens with a certified mentor for weekly check-ins. A portion of the donations received by the program will be used to establish college funds for former inmates with children.

According to Fox 5, New Birth Missionary launched the "Bail Out" program on Lent (Mar. 6). They pledged to raise $40,000 in order to bail inmates out of jail just in time for Easter Sunday. As soon as T.I. got involved, donations reportedly skyrocketed to $120,000.

We should take note of their courageous efforts.
