Run The Jewels Spread Holiday Jeer in ‘A Christmas F—ing Miracle’ Video

Subscribe to TheBoombox on

Killer Mike and El-P’s fantastic rap album, ‘Run the Jewels,’ has graced every major year-end list (including our 10 Best Hip-Hop Albums roundup) in 2013, so you would think they would be jolly this Christmas. Well, not quite. In their new holiday video for ‘A Christmas F—ing Miracle,’ not everything is full of fun and yuletide glee.

In the clip, beautifully directed by Joey Garfield, Killer Mike and El-P rap about the true meaning of the consumer-driven holiday season. Mike plays a black Santa Claus in the video and there’s nothing jolly about him, while El-P holds it down as the alcoholic elf.

A bit of levity is also mixed in as the rap duo are featured in a real life retro holiday card.

Don’t be mad at them for ruining your Christmas spirit, just listen to the message behind the visual.

Meanwhile, El-P and Killer Mike will release a deluxe edition of ‘Run the Jewels’ on Jan. 14, 2014. The collection will include the original album tracks, a poster, a T-shirt and a digital copy of the instrumentals. To pre-order the album, click here.
