Watch: Run The Jewels get mug shots in ‘Legend Has It’ video

Run The Jewels get mug shots in ‘Legend Has It’ video

The track’s lifted from the recent ‘RTJ3’.

Run The Jewels are set to bring ‘Run The Jewels 3’ to the UK next month, and have shared a new video for one of its standout tracks, ‘Legend Has It’.

Killer Mike and El-P get their mugshots taken in the new clip, premiered on the band’s Facebook page.

Speaking of the video, the piece’s director Brian Beletic says: “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.”
