Killer Mike will deliver a talk on race relations at MIT on Friday, April 24.

The Run The Jewels rapper is the latest guest to speak at the university as part of MIT’s ‘Hip Hop Speaker Series’. MIT has previously welcomed Young Guru and Lil B for guest lectures. Killer Mike’s lecture is titled ‘Race Relations in the US’.

Killer Mike has publicly spoken about the topic of race relations a number of times – live on stage, in an op-ed, on Instagram and on CNN. The video for Run The Jewels’ recent single ‘Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)’ focuses on the subject of police brutality.

Earlier today, Run The Jewels shared a special Record Store Day single entitled ‘Bust No Moves’. [via Pitchfork]
