Banksy Interviews Run the Jewels About Kanye West, Theme Parks and More

Run the Jewels is scheduled to perform at Banksy’s pop-up amusement park Dismaland on September 4

Run the Jewels is scheduled to perform at Banksy‘s pop-up amusement park Dismaland on September 4 in Weston-super-Mare, England. To prepare for what is to come, The Guardian expedited a back-and-forth interview between the legendary graffiti artist and RTJ members El-P and Killer Mike. Topics discussed in the conversation include Kanye West being the biggest rock star in the world, amusement parks, crying when watching YouTube videos, and more. Read a few excerpts from the interview below and head over here to check out the full feature.

BANKSY: Thanks for agreeing to play my theme park. Have you ever played in a theme park before?

EL-P: I have not yet had the pleasure of playing in a theme park, or enjoying one for that matter.

KILLER MIKE: I have not played a theme park. My dream is to play [US theme park] Six Flags Over Georgia before I check out of life. Mostly because they used to have a teen nightclub called Graffiti’s; I was there when I was a kid and that’s where I heard dope music and danced with girls from the suburbs after we snuck in.

When Kanye came to the UK recently, he played on a dairy farm and declared himself the greatest rock star in the world. Does he have any competition for that?

EL-P: Absolutely not.

KILLER MIKE: Kanye is amazing and may be the greatest rock star in the world but Rihanna is the new Tupac (in feminist form), and as much as I love rock, ain’t nobody do it like Pac! Ri-Ri rules in my book.
