Incendiary, heavy hip-hop artist-activists? Stoner buddies turned accidental heroes? Or both? Run the Jewels appear on one of the collectible covers of Revolver's new Summer 2020 Issue, and Killer Mike and El-P's take us inside their most "fiery and fun" statement to date. "We're the Forrest Gump of rap groups — we just end up in the middle of history somehow," says El-P. "Like, we're not trying, you know? We're just two friends smoking weed and trying to come up with dope shit."

The new Summer Issue also comes with alternate covers starring Deftones and Greg Puciato (available now via our store), as well as features including: "Art in the Time of Pandemic" curated by Mastodon's Brann Dailor and featuring Gojira's Mario Duplantier, Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament and more, a photo essay by Lamb of God's Randy Blythe, and interviews with Mrs. Piss (a.k.a. Chelsea Wolfe and Jess Gowrie), Bloodbather, Wargasm, Sharptooth, Cemican and Orbit Culture.
