Rap duo Run the Jewels clearly don’t take themselves or their work too seriously, as evidenced by stuff like the very real Meow the Jewels. But why should cats get all the glory?

If you think about it, “Squawk the Jewels” actually scans a little better than Meow the Jewels does, so maybe a full album under this concept wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world.
While not strictly related to the “Squawk the Jewels” sketch, Run the Jewels also performed on a recent episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert along with TV on the Radio, which you can watch for yourself in the clip below.
