Earlier today, we learned that a St. Louis County grand jury have reached a decision about whether or not to indict officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown. A week ago, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and called in the National Guard in anticipation of any riots that might occur pending the grand jury’s announcement.
Despite the state of unrest, Run the Jewels are still set to take the stage.
El-P reached out to fans via his Twitter account to assure them that they have every intention of performing.

And Killer Mike made his feelings about the situation known as well.
No matter what happens today in Ferguson/STL, stay organized, stay active, stay police'n the police! Never Stop. Never take a day off.
