Artist & Director’s statement:
The video for LEGEND HAS IT plays with the theme of guilty until proven innocent. We live in a world where stronger the truth the greater the opposition. In this story EL-P and Killer Mike are in a police lineup and the cards are stacked heavily against them.
But why is that?
this video is a worst nightmare scenario. high on acid and caught in the system. pitted against icons of innocence in a police line up that doesn’t feel real. no bunnies were hurt on the making of this video.
