Following on from a historic appearance from the Labour leader, Run The Jewels kept the politically-charged mood of Glastonbury 2017 with a victorious Saturday afternoon set on The Pyramid Stage.
The set had a certain poignancy following the passing of Killer Mike’s mother shortly before their set. The final song they played, Down, was dedicated to Mike’s mother. They also dedicated their first song, Talk To Me, to those who died in the Grenfell Tower disaster.
Read a touching tribute from Mike to his mother below and read the full set-list from their show here.
Watch their set in full via the BBC iPlayer here.
My mother has transitioned to be with our ancestors. All those who believe as I do know energy cannot be destroyed only transformed. I pray she is with our elders in someway and that peace and harmony follow them wherever their souls may roam. I love u Denise with all my heart and soul i do! Your children are successful, your house is in order. Your legacy is intact. You are the reason I know with no doubt in my heart My God is A Black Woman. Goodbye Mom.
