The video was released in celebration of 'Run The Jewels 2's first anniversary
Run The Jewels have unveiled a live-leaning video for ‘Angel Duster’ in celebration of the first anniversary of sophomore album ‘Run The Jewels 2’, which was released on October 24, 2014.
The video combines live footage taken from shows including Pitchfork Festival, Life Is Beautiful, Bonnaroo, Rock en Seine, the BBC, Red Bull and Music Midtown, and was directed and edited by Ryosuke Tanzawa. Tanzawa has also worked with Lil Wayne.
The video showcases the band’s live energy in particular, as well as offering a taste of their life on the road.
Alongside the video, the duo posted:
“To celebrate the one year of anniversary of RTJ2, here’s a video that encapsulates the amazing year they’ve had on the road. Shoutout to all the Jewel Runners for the continued support!”
Earlier this week, the hip-hop duo revealed the successes of their ‘Meow The Jewels’ cat-beats project, and where the charitable funds raised through the accompanying Kickstarter project are going.
The crowdfunded album originally aimed to raise $40,000 (£26,000), which was to be donated to the families of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, two American victims of police brutality. It eventually raised around $65,000 (£42,000). As the funds have now surpassed the original targets, further money has also now been assigned, and will be donated to the National Lawyer’s Guild Mass Defence Committee.
A new track ‘Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)‘ was revealed earlier in October.
