How Not To Interview Run The Jewels

Both individually and together, El-P and Killer Mike are two of rap’s best interviews. They’re funny, they’re gregarious, and they have a lot of shit to say. (This 2008 Killer Mike interview is probably my favorite interview that I’ve ever done, with anyone.) But they’ve been doing a lot of interviews lately, and evidently many of those interviewers have been asking the same questions over and over again. So El-P has helpfully posted the above note on Instagram, one that makes absolutely clear what you should not ask them. And I would probably pay money to see the death-stares these two guys give the next interviewer who lobs one of these.
