5 times Run the Jewels told it like it is in their music videos

El-P and Killer Mike of Run The Jewels have never been known to hold their tongues. From politics to police brutality, they have often spoke out against social injustice in both their music and their personal lives. Serving as the voices of the people, they never shy away from controversy, rather they add relatability and an honest take on the stories of those affected by inequality.  

Most of Run The Jewels’ music uses hard lyricism to tell a deeper story, but a few tracks have more meaning than others. The following five videos add some visual truth to the already thoughtful message.
