Run The Jewels Search for a Missing Crowd in Sci-Fi-Influenced “Call Ticketron” Video
Run The Jewels have experienced a serious glow-up following the release of their Run The Jewels 3 project, and in their latest video supporting the album, they enjoy the fruits of their success—sort of.
Recently, the Grammy-nominated rap duo made up of Killer Mike and El-P dropped off their new visual for "Call Ticketron." In the vid, the two take the stage in front of a sold-out crowd at New York City's famed Madison Square Garden. There's just one problem, though: By the time they take the stage, a moment both rappers acknowledge as a huge deal, the crowd is nowhere to be found.
Wandering where the crowd could have possibly gone off to, Killer Mike and El-P roam the venue only to find that an alien apocalypse is basically nigh. Welp.
"Run The Jewels live at the Garden/Licking off shots and we aim for the darkness/Make it get hot for a target/Kids cook s'mores off the crotch of our targets/Kumbaya bitch/Buckle up lil' trooper/You can't get past me, I'm stuck in the future," El-P raps, almost setting the scene for the visual.
Directed by Brad and Brian Palmer of Surround, the new RTJ vid features flashing red lights, ominous spaceships, flying comets and mysterious aliens. It looks a lot like the end of a Sci-Fi epic, and all together, it's pretty dope.
