Run The Jewels Get Attacked Onstage At SXSW

Don't mess with run the jewels

Run The Jewels may provoke some rowdy behaviour in their rap, but they got a next level surprise this week during their set at SXSW. Midway through their performance at Spotify House, a man rushed the stage from the audience trying to punch El-P in the face. Killer Mike forced the man offstage, where he then tried to fight fellow concert goers and security.

El-P took to his twitter later to address the attack, more concerned about the well being of others at the festival than the exciting headline.
