Run The Jewels have shared a new video for “Yankee and the Brave (ep. 4)” from their new album RTJ4.
Directed by Sean Solomon with animation by Titmouse, the video brings the song’s action film-ready narrative to life as Mike and El are pulled into a stand off with a malicious robotic police force.
Chris Prynoski, Titmouse founder and president states, “Killer Mike and El-P would fucked 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. 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.” Watch the video below.
The video comes on the heels of the duo’s masterful Holy Calamavote televised concert special, which made its debut on Adult Swim and HBO Max Saturday night. The concert film marked the first-ever performance of RTJ4, and includes special appearances from Pharrell Williams, 2 Chainz, Mavis Staples, Zack de la Rocha, Gangsta Boo, Greg Nice, DJ Cutmaster Swiff, Cochemea Gastelum, and Josh Homme, as well as Eric Andre, who acted as the event’s official Master of Ceremonies.
