Run the Jewels (the duo of Killer Mike and El-P) released their third album, the appropriately titled RTJ3 (aka Run the Jewels 3), earlier this year. Now the band has shared a video for “Don’t Get Captured.” It features claymation versions of Killer Mike and El-P as they ride a creepy and socially relevant amusement park ghost train ride that features riot police, an arrest, a trial, an execution, and more. Chris Hopewell, who directed Radiohead’s similarly animated “Burn the Witch” video last year, directs here. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Run the Jewels also recently teamed up with Danger Mouse and Big Boi for “Chase Me,” a new song for the soundtrack to Edgar Wright’s acclaimed new film Baby Driver, which is about a getaway driver who constantly listens to music on his iPods (and thus the whole movie is expertly and thrillingly cut to a slew of great songs). Check out the “Chase Me” video below too.
