RUN THE JEWELS – CLOSE YOUR EYES [VIDEO]

RTJ-close-your-eyes-video

Run The Jewels have released a new set of visuals to accompany ‘Close Your Eyes [And Count To Fuck]‘.  The track is taken from their second LP ‘Run The Jewels 2‘, and features Rage Against The Machine’s Zack De Le Rocha, which was a mach made in heaven given RTJ’s in-your-face approach.  The intense video shows a white police officer and a black civilian engaged in a messy brawl, RTJ’s Killer Mike says: “this video represents the futile and exhausting existence of a purgatory-like law enforcement system. There is no neat solution at the end because there is no neat solution in the real world. However, there is an opportunity to dialogue and change the way communities are policed in this country. Salutes to AG Rojas for his unique take on the subject matter and to Shea and Keith for giving us their all and bringing it to life.”
