Run The Jewels Drop Animated “yankee and the brave” Video

blame it on Meka October 22, 2020

This past weekend (October 17), Run The Jewels performed RTJ4 in its entirety, for their [adult swim] special Holy Calamavote. The special featured many of the guests on the album — Pharrell, 2 Chainz, Mavis Staples, Zack de la Rocha, Gangsta Boo, Greg Nice, DJ Cutmaster Swiff, Cochemea Gastelum and Josh Homme — and was hosted by Eric Andre.

The pair continue their union with [adult swim] with an animated video for “yankee and the brave.” Directed by Sean Solomon and animated by Titmouse, the video is an action-packed mini-movie as Mike and El-P do battle against a robotic police force. “Killer Mike and El-P would f**k up some robot cops in real life, so I consider this animated music video for ‘Yankee and the Brave’ a documentary – that documents the future,” Chris Prynoski, Titmouse founder and president said about the visual. “The prophecy of Run The Jewels has flowed through the Titmouse animators’ hearts and into their pencils. You can watch it before it happens as magical, moving drawings.”
