Run The Jewels Soundtrack NFL Playoff Commercial

Posted by , Jan 5, 2015 at 02:39pm

Run The Jewels' music is used in a TV spot for the Cardinals/Panthers NFL playoff game.


With their two albums as Run the Jewels, Killer Mike and El-P have made 21 tracks that sound tailor-made for clobbering your enemies. Now, despite the political content that fuels many of their tracks, one of their tracks was been used to soundtrack a TV spot for last weekend's NFL playoff game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Carolina Panthers. 

Using El-P's very fitting beat from Run The Jewels' 2013 self-titled track, ESPN doesn't have to worry about censoring lyrics or offending couch-bound right-wingers as the snippet is only instrumental. Still, it's cool to hear an El-P beat on National TV, and that he ostensibly got a pretty huge paycheck from this.
