Run The Jewels & Zack De La Rocha Fight Back Against Police Brutality (Video)
You may have recognized the song in recent Under Armour commercials, now Run The Jewels have released an official music video for “Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)” featuring Zack De La Rocha. While neither Killer Mike, El-P or De La Rocha are actually in the video, their song plays as a Black man takes on a police officer.
The fighting is a clear representation of the issues the world has watched/faced this past year. For dramatic emphasis, the video has no color, and Heads will note that neither party appears to win in the end. Amidst the headlines and search for context in 2014, Killer Mike was especially vocal about the Mike Brown/Darren Wilson verdict, coming to tears at the show they performed immediately afterwards in nearby St. Louis, Missouri.
