Run The Jewels Perform on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

2015’s been a year of landmark Late Night performances. Chance the Rapper juked on live television, and is also about to become the first ever independent artist to perform on SNL. That’s huge. But last night, Run The Jewels made their own bid for lords of Late Night, bringing some much-needed bounce to shows where people sit and talk to each other and occasionally crack jokes. Performing their self-referential track “Run The Jewels”—yes, the one where Killer Mike threatens to shoot a poodle—as well as “Crown,” Mike and El-P proceed to turn the Jimmy Kimmel Live stadium into a roiling pit. DJ Trackstar also lays down some scratches at the end, closing out what’s been an incredible run for the Run The Jewels this past year. From Meow the Jewels‘ release to being tapped by Banksy, the duo’s late-career team-up has truly blossomed into one of the hottest rap acts in the world. We’re even more excited for what 2016 will bring, hopefully that includes RTJ3. View “Run The Jewels” above, and “Crown” below.
