Run the Jewels’ Animated ‘Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)’ Video Depicts New York City Gangs

Subscribe to on

This fall, Run the Jewels unveiled “Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite),” a song that will appear on the soundtrack for Shan Nicholson’s Rubble Kings documentary. Now they have shared an animated music video for the track.

The video, which was also directed by Nicholson, depicts the same violent, ‘60s-era New York City gang warfare documented in the Rubble Kings film. Check it out above. The documentary premiered in June, but its soundtrack isn’t due out until Jan. 15 via Mass Appeal. You can pre-order it on vinyl right here. It also boasts contributions from Ghostface Killah, TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe, Little Shalimar, Bun B and Mr. Muthaf—in’ eXquire.

“Rubble Kings Theme” is Run the Jewels’ first new music outside of Meow the Jewels, a collection of cat-inspired remixes of the rap duo’s 2014 sophomore effort, Run the Jewels 2 that arrived in October.

Killer Mike and El-P have a handful of tour dates on the horizon. They’re set to make stops in California, Illinois and Colorado in December and January. Get more details at their website.
