Killer Mike has collaborated with the “Jr Gong” Marley to reimagine his anthem of perseverance, “RUN”. Originally released on July 4, 2022 as the lead single from MICHAEL, “RUN” is a statement record about Black excellence in the face of systemic adversity and the intrinsic role Black people have had in shaping American culture & economy. The new “RUN (Damian Marley version),” available on all DSPs now, provides a lens through which to understand the global resonance of the original’s theme. The version arrives alongside a new music video starring both musicians that they recently shot in Miami.

“Hip Hop and Reggae are both People’s Music. People’s Music speaks for the salt of the earth, the worker class that toils and constitutes the masses,” states Mike. “I am proud that Bob’s son and Denise’s son united the music, the vibes, and the diaspora to make this song for THE PEOPLE. Run To Glory Together! Love and Respect.”

MICHAEL was executive produced by No ID and released via Loma Vista Recordings, with a roster of features spanning multiple eras of rap, including Andre 3000, Future, Young Thug, Ty Dolla $ign, Curren$y, 6LACK, EL-P, Blxst, Eryn Allen Kane, and more. The album has been heralded as “a complex portrait of Southern Black masculinity” for its holistic portrayal of Michael’s come up in Atlanta, an enriching and relatable working class story of perseverance, responsibility, and community.
