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