The Force is out in, um, force today on the ol' Interwebz. Both Black Spade and Rockwell Knuckles unveiled new videos for their respective songs, "Running and Gunning" and "Sorta Invincible," and both projects feature members from the friendly local hip-hop collective in supporting roles.

In Spade's case, the producer/rapper/singer goes for a jog through downtown and Forest Park with the likes of Tech Supreme, Tef Poe, Rockwell, Nato Caliph and video director Eugene Tsimerman.

Rockwell's joint -- off his stellar Choose Your Own Adventure mixtape -- provides the soundtrack for a taut, three and a half minute thriller that appears to take place in the Art Lofts on Washington Avenue. Family Affair, Corey Black and Nato Caliph are cast as Rocky's pistol-packing enforcers and they slowly climb a stairwell for a brief but menacing climax that feels a little bit like the "Big Kahuna Burger" scene from Pulp Fiction.

Both projects are the work of St. Louis' Flying Fish Productions, directed by Tsimerman and filmed by Ryan Powell
