El-P and Killer Mike have a proud history of making cartoonishly violent music videos, both alone and together, and the first video for their Run The Jewels collaborative project ups the gore content once again. The video for “36” Chain” opens when marauders kidnap Mr. Killums, the sociopathic puppet from El’s “The Full Retard” video, and it follows El and Mike’s murderous rampage to get him back. Andrew W.K., Amber Tamblyn, Heems, and Despot all make cameos, and really, it was always Joan of Arcadia’s destiny to get her eyeball torn out in a rap video. Timothy Saccenti directs. Watch the insanity and download the track below.
If you haven’t downloaded Run The Jewels yet, you should really correct that oversight; it’s here.
