RUN THE JEWELS Share Lyric Video For ‘JU$T’ ft. Pharrell Williams + Zack de la Rocha

Run The Jewels, the lauded duo of El-P and Killer Mike, have shared a new lyric video for JU$T ft. Pharrell Williams and Zack de la Rocha from their critically adored new release ‘RTJ4.’ The album standout includes features from Pharrell Williams and Zack de la Rocha and has been paired with a mind-bending stop motion visual courtesy of Pulse Films’ Winston Hacking. “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,” states Hacking. “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.” 

‘RTJ4,’ released in June to massive acclaim, sparked a tremendous amount of cultural dialogue, in no small part because its themes resonate so closely with the current moment. The album, which also includes features from Mavis Staples, 2 Chainz, Josh Homme, Greg Nice, and DJ Premier, is among the top rated albums of the year according to reviews aggregator Metacritic and has proven to be a mainstay on mid-year “best of” lists, including USA Today, Time, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, NPR, Pitchfork, American Songwriter, and more.

“Offering tough, prescient words of truth to a nation in crisis, Run the Jewels deliver their greatest album yet” – VARIETY
“This is 2020 in audio form, an incendiary album that sounds like it was written and recorded last weekend, but built to last long after whatever is about to happen happens.” – FAST COMPANY
“The agility of the pair’s respective mic skills is no surprise to longtime listeners, but the fact that it’s often directed at our flawed institutions — from the ‘slave masters’ on our dollar bills in ‘Ju$t’ to, yes, police brutality in ‘yankee and the brave (ep. 4)’ — feels like a shot of adrenaline during a moment in which so many of us are searching for an emotional release.” – BILLBOARD
“Few musical artists are as well equipped to speak to the unrest in the United States right now quite as well as Run the Jewels” – NEWSWEEK
“its energy and words uncannily designed for right now.” – WALL STREET JOURNAL
