Watch: Run The Jewels Powerful Video for “Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)”

RTJ-2Run The Jewels (Killer Mike and El-P) are currently on their festival tour run, but found time to release new visuals for their standout song “Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)” featuring Zack De La Rocha. The black and white video depicts an ongoing fight between a white police officer, and a black male. A visual that’s become all too common when you consider police brutality in America.

Killer Mike and El-P have both been very vocal about their stance on police brutality in the past, and the video speaks to that issue. In fact, the RTJ tour date in St Louis last year was on the same day as the Ferguson verdict in the Mike Brown case. Run The Jewels’ remaining tour dates can be viewed below, while their RTJ2 album can be purchased on iTunes here.
