so-so-def Founder, award winner, unofficial mayor of Atlanta and multi-platinum writer, producer and artist Jermaine Dupri is our guest this week.

We sat with JD for about 90 minutes and ran through just about every story at the top of his mind. You’ve probably never heard JD this relaxed and candid.

New Video: Run The Jewels x Zack de la Rocha “Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck) http://rapradar.com/2015/03/26/new-video-run-the-jewels-x-zack-de-la-rocha-close-your-eyes-and-count-to-fuck/ http://rapradar.com/2015/03/26/new-video-run-the-jewels-x-zack-de-la-rocha-close-your-eyes-and-count-to-fuck/#comments Thu, 26 Mar 2015 15:35:17 +0000 http://rapradar.com/?p=342078 We’re All The Same.

In the midst of the ongoing police brutality across the nation, Killer Mike and El-P deliver a powerful clip between man vs cop followed by a surprising ending. Download Run The Jewels 2 here. Says video direct AG Rojas:

When Run The Jewels sent me this track, I knew we had the opportunity to create a film that means something. I felt a sense of responsibility to do just that. We had to exploit the lyrics and aggression and emotion of the track, and translate that into a film that would ignite a valuable and productive conversation about racially motivated violence in this country. It’s provocative, and we all knew this, so we were tasked with making something that expressed the intensity of senseless violence without eclipsing our humanity. For me, it was important to write a story that didn’t paint a simplistic portrait of the characters of the Cop and Kid. They’re not stereotypes. They’re people – complex, real people and, as such, the power had to shift between them at certain points throughout the story. The film begins and it feels like they have been fighting for days, they’re exhausted, not a single punch is thrown, their violence is communicated through clumsy, raw emotion. They’ve already fought their ways past their judgements and learned hatred toward one another. Our goal was to highlight the futility of the violence, not celebrate it.
