Those debating about the best project of the summer should consider their opinions null and void if they haven’t heard Killer Mike and El-P‘s Run The Jewels. Don’t believe us? Skeptics, feast your eyes on exhibit A: a hilarious visual for their standout track, “36” Chain.”
The duo find themselves in a conundrum when their puppet-friend, Mr. Killums, is abducted. Of course, it’s up to Killer Kill From Adamsville and El-Producto to get their furry compadre back, and that’s when things get interesting.
You’ll see that the pair’s talents extent past rhyming, and that they’re also well versed in the art of snuffing out cats. Everyone from a woman your grandmother’s age to fellow wordsmiths Das Racists and Mr. MFN Exquire receive a fade of epic proportions.
See for yourself in the treatment for “36” Chain” below.
