This Run The Jewels fan just became a rap legend

August 8, 2017

He rapped with the duo on stage at Lollapalooza, and all he had to do was ask.

We’ve all fantasized about being invited onstage to join our favourite hip-hop duo and show off our skills, thanks to countless hours of practicing both Meth and Red’s parts in “Da Rockwilder” , but one fan actually got to live the dream during Lollapalooza this past weekend.

Thanks to his “LET ME RAP LEGEND HAS IT” sign, Jacob Powell got the opportunity to rap the Run The Jewels 3 track onstage in front of hundreds of thousands, with El-P and Killer Mike handling the hype man role. Good thing he’d actually done his homework, and things didn’t take a turn like they did at that Kendrick show last year.

Hopefully Powell lets the world know what he plans to do with his other two genie wishes, so we can get him solve world hunger or something, before he uses another on doing Chance’s verse on “I’m The One” at Austin City Limits or something.
