Don’t expect Run the Jewels to save your life. Killer Mike and El-P take to the streets as reckless EMTs for their single “Blockbuster Night Part 1″ off the latest album, Run the Jewels 2.

In between getting blazed and watching old men collapse, The Black Lips’ Cole Alexander also makes an appearance lying on a gurney; one of the victims of a car crash. (The other guy got left behind.)

These two can’t even rescue a cat. And naturally, a cat needed to make an appearance as their upcoming project Meow the Jewels gathers more support and anticipation. When El-P hasn’t been pissing off Taylor Swift fans, he’s been in the process of auditioning feline friends. Perhaps the one who stars in this video will also guest on the album.

The duo are currently in the middle of a world tour. They brought out Zack de la Rocha and Travis Barker on stage recently in Los Angeles; both artists guest on Run the Jewels 2. You can check out the dates, and listen to bonus track “Blockbuster Night Part 2,” right here.
