Run The Jewels have premiered the music video for “Legend Has It,” the first video from their universally lauded album Run The Jewels 3. Directed by esteemed talent and old compatriot Brian Beletic (who previously helmed El-P’s classic “Deep Space 9mm” video), the clip portrays the duo in a police lineup, which they suspect might just be a set up. The acid they just dropped isn’t helping, either.
Director Brian Beletic states: “The video for ‘Legend Has It’ plays with the theme of guilty until proven innocent. 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?” And for Run the Jewels, “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.”
