Run The Jewels Are Some Rap Role Models, Even If They Don’t Want To Be (Video)
The sound of Run The Jewels is jarring, fragmented, and explosive in the ears—in the best way possible (for lovers of energetic, forceful Hip-Hop, anyway). For the latest Run The Jewels 2 video, Killer Mike and El-P captured that grit, attitude, and vibe in the visual to “Lie, Cheat, Steal.”
This has a film feel, in a digital world—nice for a group that in many ways, sounds like something out the ’88-’92 realm of Hip-Hop, despite futuristic sounds.
Even though they clearly don’t want to be role models, do you think El and Mike are, in fact just that?
