Video: Run the Jewels ft. Big Boi – “Banana Clipper”

Channeling the brazen attitude of one of the year’s strongest albums, the video for “Banana Clipper” sees Run the Jewels (the duo of El-P and Killer Mike that needs to continue making music together) and partner in crime Big Boi rap in front of a series of careening muscle cars, hopping behind the wheel on occasion and generally looking like they don’t care about videos where people go thrift shopping or do fancy dances. No frills attached, “Banana Clipper” serves as a reminder that the music is message, and the music on display here is still some of 2013’s most furiously vital.

    After that Drake video that premiered this week, it’s nice to see a simple video that has no ridiculous story arc. It’s easy to let the music be the message if the music isn’t complete shit.
