Watch Run The Jewels Letterman Show + Video Teaser; Grab Some Special RTJ Popcorn

RTJ

Hip-hop supergroup to also put in a special appearance at BLURT ground zero.

By Barbi Martinez, Blurt Intern

Run The Jewels just played live on Late Show With David Letterman, doing “Early” from RTJ2. Check it out, complete with backing singers in Halloween-appropriate creepy backing singers attired in Dia de los Muertos facepaint:

 

The El-P/Killer Mike collective is additionally celebrating via (1) a teaser for the forthcoming video “Blockbuster Night Part 1” and (2) a special limited edition run of Run The Jewels popcorn. Check out the former, below; the latter is pictured, above, and you can buy it at their label’s website.

Run The Jewels tour starts tonight in Philly shortly after they finish taping the Letterman show. From there they go to DC and Charlottesville, then on Monday night (Nov. 3) they perform at the Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro. Earlier that day they’ll be dropping in at BLURT’s sister business, Schoolkids Records of Raleigh, NC, for a special record signing session. (We share space with Schoolkids.) Target time is 6pm so don’t be late—a huge crowd is expected, based on our Facebook event response.
