Run The Jewels “Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)” Video

If you’re not already up on the awesome, Kickstarter-funded documentary Rubble Kings, now’s your chance to get familiar. The doc tracks gritty ’70s Bronx, amidst deadly gang warfare, graffiti culture, and the eventual rise of hip hop. We caught up with director Shan Nicholson over the summer for an in-depth interview, and a couple months ago dropped lead single off the soundtrack, “Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)” via the Adult Swim Singles series, featuring our main guys Run The Jewels.

Now we’ve got a double dose of soundtrack-related goodness, in preparation for the release of Rubble Kings: The Album, a companion record to the film. First, “Rubble Kings Theme (Dynamite)” gets a dope video, pitting two rival gangs (the Rubble Kings and the Javelins) against each other after a young woman is attacked, all animated in the style of artist Ralph Bakshi. Secondly, we’ve released the tracklist for the album, out January 15 via Mass Appeal Records and featuring the likes of Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire, Ghostface Killah, and Ka.

Little Shalimar, who scored the film and executive produced the soundtrack, commented, “The messages of hope and self determination from the film are so applicable to modern times that we felt it was really important to include rappers and singers that young people check today. Our hope is that kids who may have otherwise missed the movie will pick up on it by checking out this album.”
