WATCH: Run The Jewels Get Graphic in Video for “Lie, Cheat, Steal”
Everybody doin' it.
For the visual accompaniment to the RTJ2 centerpiece “Lie, Cheat, Steal,” director Ruff Mercy seems to have taken inspiration from Marvel Comics’ recent tribute to the rap duo. Last time, we took a ride in the Run the Jewels ambulance, but in the new video that premiered earlier today via Noisey, El-P and Killer Mike display their effortless cool amidst a flurry of visual effects about as dizzying and aggressive as the song’s production.
You can also get up close and personal with the duo via an interactive documentary on the newly launched BBC Taster platform.
