Politicians Brawl and Shit Talk with Run the Jewels

Spoiler alert: politicians talk a lot of shit.

But, what if instead of the usual shit talking, they were dropping bold statements in session like, “Flame your crew quicker than Trump fucks his youngest?”

DJ Shadow and Run The Jewels have supplied us with the political cabinet scene of our dreams. Old, white politicians brawling generally is the physical contact equivalent of an under 8’s netball game with even less viewing interest. Not in Turkey though, those homies really threw down.

But the new clip for Nobody Speak, directed by Sam Pilling, throws diplomacy out the window from the very first line of “Picture this I’m a bag of dicks, put me to your lips.” There’s no coming back from that one. The fiery rap verses being slung across the rooms lead to an all-out brawl, before ending with one of the leaders readying himself to impale the other with an American flag.

Killer Mike has said about the video, “It’s such a dope video. It’s what I really wish Trump and Hillary would just do and get it over with … And even in that fight I think Hillary would win — and that’s not an endorsement.”

What we’ve learnt here today kids, is that violence is bad. But so are politicians. Enjoy.
