Run the Jewels have just released a new video for “walking in the snow,” from their new album RTJ4. The new clip is directed by Chris Hopewell, who also worked with El-P and Killer Mike on their video for “Don’t Get Captured” from 2017’s RTJ3. The new clip depicts the hip-hop duo as action figures up against some sinister forces in a frosty land of misfit toys. It brings a more lighthearted tone to the song, which is one of the more devastating and poignant moments on the duo’s new album.
“It was great to work with the RTJ guys again,” Hopewell says in a press release. “Everyone was very aware of the gravity of the subject matter and RTJ didn’t want to be too obvious or on the nail with the visuals, so we went with an 80’s style fantasy look with evil snow warriors and their icy king oppressing the bedroom toys. It was great to be involved with a project with a positive vibe to end a pretty fucked up year. Big thanks to the RTJ crew for their truth and for letting us work with their amazing music once again.”
