ATLANTA, GA– Music artists Killer Mike and El-P collectively known as Run The Jewels have released their new video “Ju$T” featuring Pharrell Williams and Zack de la Rocha.
Run The Jewels worked with incredible visual artist/director Winston Hacking. The song is incredible that being visuals to the lyrics straight to your face with no chaser.
“I worked closely with Run The Jewels to create a satirical time-capsule of 2020 thus far, capturing the sentiment of their song using collage animation,” Hacking said. “Drawing on the influence of Public Enemy’s classic ‘Shut ‘Em Down’ video, we combined cut up images from contemporary and historical events into a psychedelic protest vignette, a visual fuck you to systemic racism.”
The group also raised awareness and money towards a foundation that the two believe in, the National Lawyers Guild. They raised “over $220K for our friends at NLG [Mass Defense Fund] to help them help us all continue fighting the good fight,” according to Killer Mike and El-P. Fans who contributed were rewarded with free download of RTJ4.
