If you want good life advice, apparently you need look no further than Run The Jewels' Killer Mike and El-P, who answered some questions about love, relationships and growing up sent in by teenagers to Rookie's "Ask A Grown Man". You'll have to forget for a second that these particular grown men go by the nicknames KILLER MIKE and EL-P and just trust that they're a little more worldly than those names suggest. Well, definitely at least worldly enough to answer questions for teens, who are the most questioning and confused type of people there are. And if you're familiar with Rookie's "Ask A Grown Man" series, you'll know that the advice is always quite brilliant.
Killer Mike gives really great advice about love, saying things like, "if you're in love, it's supposed to make you feel better and want to do better. It's not supposed to make you feel bad. If any love makes you feel bad, definitely pull away from it." Which is incredibly sage advice to a 13-year-old girl from a man whose name suggests he could be some kind of murderer. The advice, actually, is equally pertinent to say, a 30-year-old woman, as to a teenage girl. So go ahead and watch/listen below, because Killer Mike and El-P have some genuinely excellent advice that would serve anyone well.
