Watch Zack De La Rocha Join Run the Jewels At Their Trump-Bashing D.C. Show

INDIO, CA - APRIL 23: Recording artists Killer Mike (L) and Zack de la Rocha of Run the Jewels perform onstage during day 2 of the 2016 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival Weekend 2 at the Empire Polo Club on April 23, 2016 in Indio, California.

Run the Jewels were forced to reschedule an earlier January Washington D.C. tour date to last night, which, obviously, led to a show that was a deluge of anti-Trump chants and political oratory. (Mike: “No matter who won, the day after tomorrow, this is our mother-fucking country. I don’t give a fuck who is president. This is our country.”) The most notable event of the night, though, was an appearance by a fired-up Zack de la Rocha, who joined El and Mike for his collaborations on the past two RTJ albums, “Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)” and “Kill Your Masters.”

Here’s some de la Rocha footage:

Killer Mike also performed R.A.P. Music highlight “Reagan,” which blended into a “Fuck Ronald Reagan/Fuck Donald Trump” chant:

Memphis’ Gangsta Boo, also pissed about Trump, appeared to perform her RTJ collaboration “Love Again”:
