Looks like Run the Jewels is now about to Run the Arts!
Run the Jewels’ Killer Mike has been named to the Board of Directors at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art. If that name sounds familiar, you may recall it was the museum seen in the hit Marvel film Black Panther.
As one of 85 members, Mike hopes to add diversity to the museum, telling AJC that he’s “a product of the arts programming at the Atlanta public school system,” and that he’s “looking forward to seeing more people from my part of town, people who look like me, at the High.”
Mike made the announcement himself on Instagram, acknowledging that he’s now got JAY-Z-style bragging rights.
