Run the Jewels’ third self-titled record is a “radically abrasive” album that’s wonderfully of a piece with what cohorts Killer Mike and El-P have been up to for the past several years.

Now that rebellious work is finally getting some visuals, and the first clip is for the flex-heavy “Legend Has It.” If the song features Jamie and Mike in pure shit-talking mode, then the Brian Beletic-directed video puts the pair in a much more perilous situation. Mr. Meline and Mr. Render are trapped in a totally bogus police line-up while on acid, which is about as bad as it sounds. Both of them zone out several times, slap themselves to stay awake, converse with a sketchy knife salesman who might not be real and, of course, see some melting walls.

If you want to see how it all turns out for RTJ, watch the video above and find more info on it here. The duo’s got a slate of upcoming tour dates that can be found below. Read our review of Run the Jewels 3 here.
