Last Monday (March 16), Run The Jewels were attacked on stage during a performance at SXSW. The crazy fan was quickly dealt with, but what many people didn’t know is that Mike was injured in the process.
NME reports that Mike was diagnosed with a torn rotary cuff after flying from Texas to Atlanta to see his doctor. Though his doctor advised him to put it in a sling, Mike flat-out refused it. “I was like, ‘Doctor, I’m not leaving the road,'” he said. “The tour goes on!”
Buzzfeed also reports that the disgruntled fan who rushed the stage claimed that Mike and RTJ cohort El-P “owed him money and stole his lyrics.” Mike, El, and their fans thanked him the only way Jewel Runners know how. Check out the video below.
