Video: Run The Jewels – Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)

On January 15th, Mass Appeal Records is dropping Rubble Kings: The Album, a musical accompaniment to the highly lauded street gang documentary of the same name by director Shan Nicholson. Today they debut the animated video for the Killer Mike and El-P banger “Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite),” which first surfaced back in October.

Nicholson, who also directed the video, explains:

“This video was inspired by the Rubble Kings documentary and the works of the great Ralph Bakshi. The video depicts a story of street justice in the turbulent streets of the 1970’s South Bronx. We follow ‘Little Nina’, who’s violently attacked by a rival gang on her way home from her grandmother’s house. What follows is an all out rumble between her gang, the fictionalized ‘Rubble Kings’ and the ‘Javelins’. Run the Jewels alongside producer Little Shalimar provide the rugged soundtrack to the piece.”
