Published Dec 01, 2015A couple of months back, rap wrecking crew Run the Jewels shared a track called "Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)" through the Adult Swim Singles Program. The track — which also comes from the soundtrack of the upcoming New York gangland document Rubble Kings — has now gotten an animated video.
The animated clip is a fitting accompaniment to the threatening track, as a gritty cartoon captures the violence of inner city gangs in the South Bronx in the 1970s. A woman is assaulted while walking through the graffiti-strewn streets, and she eventually brings some friends along to help her finish off a violent gang war. It was directed by Shan Nicholson.
Rubble Kings: The Album will be out on January 15 through Mass Appeal. It features Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, Bun B, Ghostface Killah and more.
