The music video for “Walking in the Snow” from Run the Jewels has jut been released for their album Run the Jewels 4.
The stop-motion video directed by Chris Hopewell showcases Killer Mike & El-P as action figures who see themselves in a bedroom type city where a group of thugs terrorize the residents in order to quash any revolts. However, Killer Mike and El-P later tam up with an underground rebel group that seek s to destroy the tyrannical forces.
Hopewell had this to say about the video via a statement: “It was great to work with the RTJ guys again,” he said. “Everyone was very aware of the gravity of the subject matter and RTJ didn’t want to be too obvious or on the nail with the visuals, so we went with an ’80s style fantasy look with evil snow warriors and their icy king oppressing the bedroom toys. It was great to be involved with a project with a positive vibe to end a pretty fucked up year. Big thanks to the RTJ crew for their truth and for letting us work with their amazing music once again.”
RTJ4 was released back in June that included features from 2 Chainz, DJ Premier, Mavis Staples, Pharrell and many more. You can watch the music video for “Walking in the Snow” from Run the Jewels down below:
