Run The Jewels: Walking In The Snow – akciófigura-videoklip Chris Hopewell rendezésében

2020. december 30., 0:01

A Run The Jewels hiphopduó a Blink-182-dobos Travis Barkerrel közös Forever videója és a Cyberpunk 2077 videojátékhoz készült No Save Point kisfilmje után most visszatér nyári RTJ4 albumának klipsorozatához. A rapperek vadonatúj akciófigura-videóját a páros 2017-es Don’t Get Captured klipjéhez hasonlóan ismét a brit animátor-rendező Chris Hopewell készítette (aki az utóbbi években a Radiohead együttes Burn The Witch-ét és a Father John Misty-féle Things It Would Have Been Helpful To Know Before The Revolutiont és Please Don’t Die-t is jegyezte).

A memphisi Three 6 Mafia kollektívából ismert rappercsaj Gangsta Boo (született: Lola Mitchell, 1979) közreműködésével felvett Walking In The Snow című szám nyolcvanas évek esztétikájú kisfilmjében El-P és Killer Mike akciófigurákként állnak a gyerekszoba játékainak élére a fagyos kék elnyomók elleni harcban.

Get a dose, a dirty code to go, been cold since Co-Flow
Got a wire or two unlodgin’, I’ll set a fire down below
I’ll hang it up when you say, “Sorry, I didn’t know”
Prolly got a year or ten to go, so let’s go
I don’t really know how to go slow
Just got done walkin’ in the snow
Goddamn, that motherfucker’s cold
You in the wrong mode, you open and closin’ your hole, it’s a no go
This whole world’s a shit moat, filled to the brim like Gitmo
When you think it don’t get mo’ low it limbo ’til the sticks on flo’
All oppression’s born of lies, I don’t make the rules, I’m just one guy
All due respect, if getting spit on’s how respect is now defined
Hungry for truth but you got screwed and drank the Kool-Aid, there’s a line
It end directly at the edge of a mass grave, that’s their design
Funny fact about a cage, they’re never built for just one group
So when that cage is done with them and you still poor, it come for you
The newest lowest on the totem, well golly gee, you have been used
You helped to fuel the death machine that down the line will kill you too
Pseudo-Christians, y’all indifferent, kids in prisons ain’t a sin? Shit
If even one scrap of what Jesus taught connected, you’d feel different
What a disingenuous way to piss away existence, I don’t get it
I’d say you lost your goddamn minds if y’all possessed one to begin with

Just got done walkin’ in the snow
Goddamn, that motherfucker cold

Yeah, ho, Gangsta Boo, Run the Jewels
We back on our shit, and it’s cold as fuck

The way I see it, you’re probably freest from the ages one to four
Around the age of five you’re shipped away for your body to be stored
They promise education, but really they give you tests and scores
And they predictin’ prison population by who scoring the lowest
And usually the lowest scores the poorest and they look like me
And every day on the evening news, they feed you fear for free
And you so numb, you watch the cops choke out a man like me
Until my voice goes from a shriek to whisper, “I can’t breathe”
And you sit there in the house on couch and watch it on TV
The most you give’s a Twitter rant and call it a tragedy
But truly the travesty, you’ve been robbed of your empathy
Replaced it with apathy, I wish I could magically
Fast forward the future so then you can face it
And see how fucked up it’ll be
I promise I’m honest
They coming for you the day after they comin’ for me
I’m readin’ Chomsky, I read Bukowski, I’m layin’ low for a week
I said somethin’ on behalf of my people and I popped up in Wikileaks
Thank God that I’m covered, the devil come smothered
And you know the evil don’t sleep
Dick Gregory told me a couple of secrets before he laid down in his grave
All of us serve the same masters, all of us nothin’ but slaves
Never forget in the story of Jesus, the hero was killed by the state

Just got done walkin’ in the snow
Goddamn, that motherfucker cold

Who really wanna run it with the Jewel Runners?
Go hellfire hot in a new sauna
It’s a cold winter, baby, and a cruel summer
I suicide bomb in the blue Hummer
And emerge out the side, not a bruise on ’em
Bad news come in twos, son, do somethin’
Treat beats like a wet thigh, chew on ’em
Got a stroke row crew on ’em, move on ’em
We be the heroes, the breakers of chains, and the busters of locks
You be them suckers supportin’ them snitches that talk to the cops
This the Illmatic of turning your face into fucker foie gras
I’m not so sure opportunity’s knocking, it’s probably the law
Word to the old school tape decks
I get Radio Raheem respect
My Nike pendant sacred
Similar to the Ghostface bracelet
Fire in the hole, oh, no joke
Prolly go broke just off smoke
Fuck are we gonna do, not smoke?
Get a job, play the role, be adults?
Nah, I’ma do me, arigato

First of all, they cheated
‘Cause they, one of ’em black and the other one white
So if you don’t like ’em, you automatically racist
Ah, oh, well
