Killer Mike and El-P took to the streets of Atlanta for the new Run the Jewels video for the song, "Blockbuster Night Part 1."

The pair cruise around town in an ambulance, a couple of rapping and smoking EMTs. They stop at Milton Street (to pick up a crumpled body) and wind up at Landmark Diner (the Cheshire Bridge location) for a 4 a.m. bite to eat.

The video also includes an amusing nod to "Meow the Jewels," the Kickstarter-funded project that will apparently feature Run the Jewels' new album, "RTJ2," remixed with cat sounds. Even if that never happens -- though it should since the project raised $20,000 more than it's $45,000 goal -- the shot of Atlanta-native Killer Mike dangling a cat toy to lure a kitty down from a tree is rather priceless.

Check out the video for "Blockbuster Night Part 1."
