Watch! Run the Jewels (Killer Mike and El-P) – 36″ Chain
Rich saw Killer Mike and El-P at Ottawa Bluesfest last week was blown away, in spite of (and because of) technical difficulties during their set. Rich also sums up Killer Mike quite well, by saying “he’s a very thoughtful, intelligent guy with a big, tough, ‘King of Atlanta’ delivery. He’s a giant-gold-chain-wearing MC who actually rhymes about the emptiness of the pursuit of millions. A man who talks about the glory of God and raps about the ‘bullshit’ of organized religion.”
Killer Mike and El-P recently teamed up on an album called Run the Jewels. We now have their first ever video, for the track 36″ Chain (not sure what length that is in metric). The video also features Andrew W.K. and actress Amber Tamblyn. Watch Killer Mike and El-P try to “get the kids off the drugs”, with the help of a puppet. Watch out for the violence in the video below.
