Run the Jewels Enter a Tripped-Out Police Lineup in New "Legend Has It" Video
Published Mar 22, 2017Run the Jewels gave us the greatest Christmas gift of all with the release of their Run the Jewels 3 LP, and now they've let us experience the magic of Christmas all over again by revisiting the project with a new video.
The pair have treated their album track "Legend Has It" to a new video from director Brian Beletic. The clip sees the duo involved in a seriously trippy police lineup.
Beletic, who previously directed El-P's video for "Deep Space 9mm," said, "The video for 'Legend Has It' plays with the theme of guilty until proven innocent. 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?"
Run the Jewels added a statement of their own, saying, "This video is a worst nightmare scenario. High on acid and caught in the system. Pitted against icons of innocence in a police lineup that doesn't feel real. No bunnies were hurt in the making of this video."
