Run The Jewels, the duo of Killer Mike and El-P, released their monstrous RTJ2 album a couple of weeks ago, and now they’ve made a video for “Blockbuster Night Part 1,” the hard-pounding first single. In the video, Mike and El play fuckup emergency medical technicians, piloting an ambulance through a foggy Atlanta night. The video has some of the dark, hallucinatory qualities of Martin Scorsese’s Bringing Out The Dead, but it’s also got some Stripes in it: A couple of misfits fucking around and bungling an important job. The concept is fun, but the real draw is the chemistry between these two. They’re just so much goddam fun to watch. Trevor Kane directs; check it out below.
