Run The Jewels Deliver Electric Performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert [WATCH]
Run the Jewels recently gave NPR a taste of their live show when they appeared on the station’s popular Tiny Desk Concert series.
Killer Mike and El-P showed up with DJ Trackstar to deliver some of their songs from the recently released RTJ3, which hit #1 the rap charts a couple of weeks ago. The pair, who obviously have incredible chemistry to anyone who’s had the good fortune to seem them live, ran through several tracks, much to the delight of the small audience who happily participated. Kicking their DJ’d set off with “Talk to Me,” Mike and Jamie also performed “A Report to the Shareholders” and “Legend Has It.”
Of course, they’re not the first rappers by a long shot to hit the popular concert series. Late last year, Gucci Mane and Zaytoven rocked it, with Zay handling the work on the keys for a piano set. Mike actually mentioned their appearance during RTJ’s performance, saying that if Gucci did it, they knew they had to show up as well.
RTJ is currently on tour in support of RTJ 3 which released last month. You can check out their Tiny Desk Concert above.
