The dynamic-duo charisma of El-P and Killer Mike is even more irresistible onstage than it is on record, and they brought it in spades to Run the Jewels’ Tiny Desk Concert, which debuted on NPR today. The pair performed three tracks from RTJ3–“Talk to Me,” “Legend Has It,” and “A Report to the Shareholders”–with El bragging about how his dick has a Michelin star and Mike asking NPR staffers who’s got the weed in between songs. At the beginning of their set, Run the Jewels are noticeably a little stiff, perhaps due to the unconventional setting, but by the halfway point they’re firing on all cylinders. Watch it below.
