WHAT IS KILLER MIKE OF RUN THE JEWELS DOING ON HBO'S REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER?

AIRING TONIGHT, MAY 15, AT 7:00 PM ON HBO
It's been a whirlwind year for Killer Mike. Run The Jewels - Mike's group with El-P released their sophomore album Run The Jewels 2 which was named album of the year by Pitchfork and received 2014 year-end honors including best album from NPR, The New York Times, Newsweek, Entertainment Weekly and a few notable others (Rolling Stone , Stereogum, SPIN, Billboard, Consequence of Sound, AV Club , PopMatters , Paste and more). These accolades catapulted Mike to new levels of cultural significance, giving greater platform to his voice of reason. Specifically, Killer Mike has been called on by numerous respected news agencies for his insightful political and social commentary. Mike was later invited to give a lecture at MIT entitled Race Relations in the US. That same weekend, he flew to Washington D.C. to attend the White House Press Correspondents dinner. While there, Ariana Huffington invited Mike to become an official writer for the Huffington Post.

Now, Killer Mike is honored to appear on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher tonight, May 15th, at 7:00 p.m. Mike will appear alongside noted figures such as John Waters, political scientist Charles Murray, and public policy expert Heather C. McGhee to discuss race relations in Baltimore.
