Run The Jewels Shares Video “Walking In The Snow”

Killer Mike and El-P, the duo of Killer Mike and El-P, have released a video for “walking in the snow” off the 2020 release, RTJ4. The video was directed by Chris Hopewell, who also directed the video for the duo’s “Don’t Get Captured,” off RTJ3. The stop motion visual stars action figure versions of Mike and El, who have been thrust into a toy-populated bedroom city where authoritarian forces have seized power and routinely use violence to quell revolts. It doesn’t take long for our heroes to discover and link up with a secret rebel force intent on overthrowing their frosty overlords. The video treatment is a perfect thematic fit for the song, which is one of the most lyrically prescient and relevant songs of the era. It’s a tightrope walk between scathing political commentary and good-humored fun, a perfect reflection of the band itself.
