Run The Jewels on Ferguson: Riots Work

A year after the death of Mike Brown, 2014's most critically acclaimed rap group Run the Jewels took over the BBC to examine if the Ferguson riots made any difference. Outspoken on racism and with millions of downloads, Killer Mike and El-P drove into St Louis to perform on the night that a grand jury chose not to indict the police officer that killed Mike Brown - hours later, large scale riots would break out. In this special video, Run the Jewels explain why riots work and what it was like to perform on such an emotive night.
