Run The Jewels have shared a brand new video – watch their fantastic new clip for ‘Out Of Sight’ below.
In the new video, the actors from the film aim to steal paintings of Mike, El and 2 Chainz, before coming unstuck.
The video was directed by Ninian Doff, who previously helmed the duo’s’ Love Again’ clip. And to give the newly shared video a comedic punch, it features the cast and characters from the UK comedy Get Duked!
“The film tells the tale of four teens whose idyllic camping trip in the Scottish Highlands becomes a fight for survival when they become the target of deranged hunters,” a statement reads.
“Run the Jewels, in search of a video for their brilliant collaboration with 2 Chainz, brought the idea to Doff as a way to promote both projects, who took it beyond anything they imagined.”

‘Out Of Sight’ appears on Run The Jewels’ new album ‘RTJ4’, which NME‘s Will Lavin called “a modern protest classic and their best work yet” in a five-star review.
“The righteous rap duo take on police brutality and the fear-mongering media,” the review continued, proclaiming that “if a hip-hop album alone could change the world, this might do it.”
Speaking to NME about their starring roles in the ‘Out Of Sight’ video, the cast of Get Duked! said they didn’t meet Killer Mike, El-P and 2 Chainz.
“There was a lot of green screen involved,” Viraj Juneja said. “Ninan was directing us going: ‘Right now, you’re sitting on 2 Chainz’s shoulders and eating jewels’ – and I was thinking: ‘What the hell?!’ We got to abseil, run on treadmills, and I got to mime along with verses which was a dream.”
“We were filming in a mansion next to a tennis court and a golf course – the kind of place where people probably pay £10,000-a-month for membership,” Lewis Gribben added.
Rian Gordon remembered one particular moment during filming involving his attire: “I was sitting having lunch outside and I unbuttoned my shirt and this old dick comes pulling up to me in a golf cart and said: ‘Excuse me! This isn’t Benidorm! Do you mind buttoning up your shirt?!'”
Killer Mike and El-P appeared on the cover of NME for a Big Read interview around the release of ‘RTJ4’ to talk about the album, police brutality and more.
