Run the Jewels Share Incendiary Animated Video for ‘Early’
The animated, politically loaded clip mirrors recent events
Following the explosive video for “Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)” off of last year’s Run the Jewels 2, Run the Jewels have (arguably) outdone themselves with the official video for “Early,” featuring producer Boots. Animated by production duo Bug and Sluzzy, the clip reflects the song’s commentary on events like Freddie Gray’s death, the ensuing Baltimore riots (which Killer Mike has written about), and their political implications with literally hair-raising images of candle-lit vigils, protesters, cops with guns, and talking heads duking it out on TV.
