Run The Jewels premieres the official video to “Legend Has It”, the first off their critically-acclaimed new album, Run The Jewels 3.
The Brian Beletic-directed clip begins with Killer Mike being dragged into a holding room at a jail by El-P, before being shoved into a police line-up, which they suspect might be a set up. Oh, and the acid they just dropped isn’t helping, either.
“The video for ‘Legend Has It’ plays with the theme of guilty until proven innocent,” explains Beletic. “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?”
“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.”
