Tune in and turn up

Back in support of 2016’s Run the Jewels 3, Run the Jewels deliver the first official music video from the project. Directed by Brian Beletic, the clip in turn portrays the hip-hop duo, who just dropped acid, in a police lineup, which they suspect might just be a set up.

“The video for ‘Legend Has It’ plays with the theme of guilty until proven innocent,” says Beletic. “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?”

In further providing insight, Run the Jewels stated, “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.”

In addition to releasing the Run the Jewels 3 aesthetic, the tandem are also gearing up for the ‘Run the World’ tour in the UK and Europe, alongside festival appearances worldwide. See below for the dates and locations.
