Longtime St. Louis DJ Charlie Chan Soprano performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday alongside Colbert's house band, Stay Human, and hip-hop legend DMC (of Run DMC fame, obviously). The cadre of musicians performed the Aerosmith/Run DMC collaboration "Walk This Way."

Charlie Chan has worked with DMC for years, even manning the turntables for Run DMC's 2012 reunion at Jay-Z's Made In America Festival — filling the enormous Adidas shoes left behind by the late Jam Master Jay — as well as subsequent performances. He now serves as DMC's personal DJ.
