AceShowbiz - After helping Logic announce the release date of his new mixtape, Rick and Morty are helping another hip-hop musician. The titular characters from Cartoon Network's hit series "Rick and Morty" star in Run the Jewels' music video for "Oh Mama".
Juan Meza-Leo, the director and storyboard artist for the show, helmed the hilarious clip, which was released on Friday, March 16. It starts with the two channeling "Men in Black" characters while traveling through space. They stop by a shady nightclub, where they kill aliens to steal an alien embryo.
"My mama said that I'm not living right/ She said, 'I'm crying on you'/ She said, 'I waited up for you all night'/ I said, 'I'm trying mama,' " the rapper duo sing in the clip. "My mama said that I'm not living right/ They want us dying, mama/ My mama said that I'm not living right/ But I ain't crying mama."
In addition to their intergalactic visuals, Run the Jewels announced that they would be headlining Adult Swim Festival. The two-day event will take place on October 6-7 at the Row DLTA in downtown Los Angeles. The festival will feature previews of new Adult Swim shows and episodes of the upcoming season of "Rick and Morty". It will also include comedy performances, interactive gaming and exclusive merchandises.
"Adult Swim already does television like no one else," Jill King, the SVP Marketing and Partnership for Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and Boomerang, said in a statement. "Now it's time to bring that same unique approach to a one-of-a-kind festival experience. The Adult Swim Festival will feature everything fans love about us...great shows, cutting edge music, and a passionate community to enjoy it all together."
This is not the first time Adult Swim hosts an event. The network previously held the Adult Swim on the Green tour and a heavy metal concert series called Thrashtacular.
