Video: Run The Jewels Perform Early (with special guest Boots) on the Late Show with David Letterman.

Rappers Run The Jewels picked a special track off their excellent new album Run The Jewels 2 to play on David Letterman on Halloween last week, and hence the back-up singers in facepaint! The track was Early features a stunning hook sung by Boots, the producer of Beyonce’s 2013 album, who luckily joined Killer Mike and El-P for their Late Show performance.

On Early, Killer Mike raps a powerful tale about being pulled over by police for possession of marijuana. Don’t take my word for it, just watch the clip and listen.

In other RTJ news the first single Blockbuster Night, Pt 1 is about to receive an accompanying video that the boys recently filmed in Atlanta. I must warn you that in a clear nod to their charity album funded through Kickstarter, Meow The Jewels, there is a cat appearance in the clip. Meow.

I am a noisy noodle hailing from Melbourne, Australia who loves listening to noise in all forms, but preferably in music, TV and film. I’ve moonlighted on community radio at SYN-FM many years ago when I was still a “youth”. My mission is to promote live music (get off your bum and see something!), highlight interesting TV shows that are ignored by the ratings, expose some cool films and to not go deaf trying!
