First of all, a happy new year to you guys. I hope you all managed to find some semblance of festive joy, in spite of the global shit-show we are all existing in right now. I thought I’d kick off 2021 with the latest from Run The Jewels, as they get their Pixar on in their new video for Walking In The Snow, in which we find them depicted as kick-ass RTJ action figures manoeuvring their way through a violent dystopian toy town. Pleased to see Bristol’s own Jacknife Films involved with the production again, alongside London-based Black Dog Films. RTJ4 is out now.
Run The Jewels seem to be unstoppable right now, after shutting down their Coachella sets with cameos from Nas, Gary Clark and Bernie Sanders (via video), they then released a new video for Love Again. Their sexually charged collaboration with Gangsta Boo is one of my favourites from RTJ2 and even more so now they have made this video jammed full of suggestive imagery, involving a butterfly, a flower and a lot of nectar.
