Run the Jewels have shared an animated lyric video for their collaboration with Pharrell and Rage Against the Machine’s Zack de la Rocha, “Ju$t.”
The video was made by Pulse Films’ Winston Hacking, and it revolves around a moving collage that reflects the song’s lyrics about racism’s roots in American capitalism.
“I worked closely with Run the Jewels to create a satirical time-capsule of 2020 thus far, capturing the sentiment of their song using collage animation,” Hacking explains. “Drawing on the influence of Public Enemy’s classic ‘Shut ‘Em Down’ video, we combined cut up images of contemporary and historical events into a psychedelic protest vignette, a visual fuck you to systemic racism.”
