Run the Jewels Evade Robot Nazi Cops in the “Yankee and the Brave Ep. 4” Video

Sean Solomon and Titmouse team up for the new Run the Jewels video.

On Thursday, Run the Jewels released the animated video for their latest single, “yankee and the brave (ep. 4),” from their album RTJ4. The video was directed by Sean Solomon and animated by Titmouse, the award-winning animation studio responsible for Adult Swim shows like Rick & Morty, Big Mouth, Black Dynamite, and more.

The video features El-P and Killer Mike on a chaotic high-speed chase, fending off robotic Nazi police officers and crashing a backroom card game along the way. “I think this [should] be a show,” Mike wrote on Instagram.

“Killer Mike and El-P would fuck up some robot cops in real life,” Titmouse founder Chris Prynoski said in a statement. “So I consider this animated music video for ‘Yankee and the Brave’ a documentary – that documents the future. The prophecy of Run The Jewels has flowed through the Titmouse animators’ hearts and into their pencils. You can watch it before it happens as magical, moving drawings.”

The group drops this video on the heels of their ‘Holy Calamavote’ benefit show, where they performed their latest album in its entirety, and Killer Mike receiving the inaugural Change Maker award at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards. Mike recently launched a digital banking platform called Greenwood Banking targeting Black and Latinx clients. The bank will include 30,000 ATM locations, providing savings and spending accounts with no fees for withdrawing money.

Stream “yankee and the brave ep. 4” on all major digital streaming platforms.
