Inocência e culpa, justiça e poder, obstrução e manipulação. O estado policial que empurra a verdade para a mentira mais a jeito e a mentira para o disfarce mais bonito. Os Run The Jewels, depois de terem estado na semana passada no The Tonigh Show with Jimmy Fallon, lançam agora o vídeo para a mesma música – “Legend Has It” -que apresentaram no clássico programa da NBC.

El P e Killer Mike encontram-se numa linha de identificação policial, ambos com a cabeça cheia de ácidos e num desfilar de vários P’s e Mike’s e mais uma série de personagens altamente improváveis neste cenário, numa narrativa surreal que se compõe de um final onde os maus são afinal os do costume mas os bons são efectivamente os piores.

The video for ‘Legend Has It’ plays with the theme of guilty until proven innocent. We live in a world where the stronger the truth the greater the opposition. In this story EL-P and Killer Mike are in a police lineup and the cards are stacked heavily against them. But why is that?” And for Run the Jewels, “this video is a worst nightmare scenario. High on acid and caught in the system. Pitted against icons of innocence in a police line up that doesn’t feel real. No bunnies were hurt in the making of this video.

O vídeo para “Legend Has It” foi realizado por Brian Beletic. O tema faz parte de RTJ3 lançado no final de Dezembro passado pela Run the Jewels, Inc. os Run The Jewels tocam em Junho no NOS Primavera Sound.

VIDEO PREMIERE!

Rap super-duo Run The Jewels premiere “Legend Has It”, the first video from their universally lauded album Run The Jewels 3. Directed by esteemed talent and old compatriot Brian Beletic (who previously helmed El-P’s classic “Deep Space 9mm” video), the clip portrays the duo in a police lineup, which they suspect might just be a set up. The acid they just dropped isn’t helping, either.

Director Brian Beletic states: “The video for ‘Legend Has It’ plays with the theme of guilty until proven innocent. We live in a world where the stronger the truth the greater the opposition. In this story EL-P and Killer Mike are in a police lineup and the cards are stacked heavily against them. But why is that?” And for Run the Jewels, “this video is a worst nightmare scenario.
