Video: DJ Shadow ft. Run The Jewels – Nobody Speak

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016

It took a few months, but DJ Shadow has finally dropped the official video for his Killer Mike and El-P laced single “Nobody Speak” and it was well worth the wait. In the clip, a stuffy looking formal meeting of some important looking international body breaks down into an all out brawl to the death. Killer Mike told Mass Appeal about the visual: “It’s what I really wish Trump and Hillary would just do and get it over with…And even in that fight I think Hillary would win – and that’s s not an endorsement.”

DJ Shadow’s The Mountain Will Fall is out now.

El-P and Killer Mike demand silence on a new head nodder from DJ Shadow’s upcoming album, The Mountain Will Fall. Even though their technique is a little different, we need to start including these guys in “best back to back verses” conversations along with duos like Jadakiss and Styles P or Ghostface and Raekwon. Shadow’s album drops June 24th on Mass Appeal, but you can download “Don’t Speak” this weekend if you purchase any of the VRTJ Virtual Reality viewers that the guys are dropping for Record Store Day 2016.
