Killer Mike has unveiled “RUN,” a brand new collaboration with Younger Thug that marks the Run the Jewels rapper’s first solo music in 10 years. Hearken to the unsurprisingly political monitor under.
Produced by NO I.D., “RUN” reframes America’s Independence Day with an emphasis on Black historical past. Bass slinks below a refrain of horns as Killer Mike reminds us, “The race for freedom ain’t gained.” “All I do know is preserve going/ Run, *****, run,” he repeats. The tune’s hook comes from a Dave Chappelle monologue about being Black in America, which opens “RUN”‘s music video.
Directed by Adrian Villagomez, the clip options Black troopers at battle as Chappelle likens being African American to storming the seaside in Normandy. “Ain’t no rhyme or motive why it’s not you on the bottom, however so long as it’s not, you higher preserve your ft beneath you,” the comic insists. “Hold shifting.” Watch the visible for “RUN” under.
Consequence caught up with Killer Mike again in April, the place the rapper mentioned his Vice docuseries Tumbleweeds with Killer Mike and tipped us off to the subsequent Run the Jewels album. His final document was 2020’s Run the Jewels 4, whereas he appeared within the last season of Ozark earlier this yr.
