Run the Jewels Release Trippy "Lie, Cheat, Steal" Video

Here we go, people. If you're already in on Run the Jewels and their brilliant, brutal 2014 album RTJ2, you're ready. If you're still on the outs, step up and enjoy "Lie, Cheat, Steal," a trippy, creepy, animation-splattered video for one of the record's many standout cuts. It's the perfect gateway to your new favorite rap act. And if you've gotta move on to "Blockbuster Night Part 1" next—the one where the dudes dudes play joint-ripping EMTs—then so be it.

Killer Mike and El-P have been surfing on top of the rap game since RTJ2 dropped in October. (The release was one of Fuse's favorites of the year.) Last week, the internet finally got a tiny taste of Meow the Jewels, the Kickstarter-funded, all-cat-sounds remix album. Then, on Tuesday, a video of Run the Jewels playing a set in an old Paris train station showed up—and that was dope, too.

The 11-song, 40-minute RTJ2 is available as a free download here.
