Here’s a Dark and Twisted Take on a “Christmas Carol” From Killer Mike & El-P (Video)
When Run The Jewels’ first album dropped this Summer, album closer “A Christmas F*ckin’ Miracle” seemed a long way away. El’s beat kinda had that caroling feel, while both men slowed it down for some of the best, most open verses of the amazing album.
Just in time for Christmas week, El and Bigga drop the video. As both artists have done long before R.T.J., the video has so much character, and a lot of laughter. The tandem pokes fun at bad sweaters, ugly Christmas cards, bad Santas, and of course, a cold-hearted homage to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Tiny Tim can empty his pockets and run the jewels too… this late entry is one of Hip-Hop’s videos of the year.
