Run the Jewels, "Legend Has It"

Run The Jewels: Legend Has It (Official Video)

VIDEO PREMIERE! Rap super-duo Run The Jewels premiere “Legend Has It”, the first video from their universally lauded album Run The Jewels 3. Directed by esteemed talent and old compatriot Brian Beletic (who previously helmed El-P’s classic “Deep Space 9mm” video), the clip portrays the duo in a police lineup, which they suspect might just be a set up. The acid they just dropped isn’t helping, either. Director Brian Beletic states: “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?” And for Run the Jewels, “this video is a worst nightmare scenario. High on acid and caught in the system. Pitted against icons of innocence in a police line up that doesn't feel real. No bunnies were hurt in the making of this video.” Look out for more videos to come from Run the Jewels...

The duo, high on acid, is placed in a suspicious police line-up that includes not just a nun, blind man, and seemingly innocent little girl, but multiple versions of the rappers themselves making their odds of being released even lower.

The rapper celebrates his humble beginnings in the clip for the feel-good track, heading back home where friends and family are playing basketball, double-dutch, and dominoes before enjoying dinner and a living room dance party.

Billie Eilish, "Bellyache"

Billie Eilish - Bellyache

The 15-year-old lugs a wagon full of cash down a road in the middle of a desert, taking breaks only to dance gleefully. But her luck runs out.

Club Kuru, "Ribbons"

Club Kuru: Ribbons

In this glitchy and grainy visual for the self-proclaimed "psychedelic crooners" of the London-based five-piece group, two women watch each other from afar via televisions placed around a public England art piece.
