Run The Jewels
are on a tear. The last video ("Blockbuster Night Pt. 1"
) saw the duo run a hilariously unsettling stint as EMTs, and their latest video is a progressively psychedelic black box celebration of neon concert lit nudes. Slashed with interspersed rotating shots of Killer Mike and El-P rapping through verses, and Bond calibre babes clad in nothing but fake nails, gold chains and thongs, melting into the lightscape like the sirens of Sixties spy movies.
Not exactly safe for work: there's backlit nipple, and El-P delivers one of the years best middle-finger in the air lines, "you can all run naked backwards through a field of dicks." Eventually the melter visuals take over, and the acid trip sets in. Body parts begin to stretch, and fish eye lenses look back at you with pouty lips. Then, as Run The Jewels does: cut, flash, stripped, and black out—though not before El-P flashes the RTJ signature shoot the fist sign language.
