The legendary DJ Shadow has a new song called “Nobody Speak,” and while the funky, brass-heavy production is ace, the real stars are Run the Jewels. El-P and Killer Mike grace the track with a host of memorable lines, not the least of which is, “flame your crew than Trump f**ks his youngest.”
“Occasionally, I make a beat that demands a specific vocal treatment and attitude. In the case of ‘Nobody Speak,’ I wasn’t going to settle for anyone other than Run the Jewels; in my mind, it was them or no one,” DJ Shadow said in a press release.
The song will appear both on DJ Shadow’s forthcoming album The Mountain Will Fall and as a download code accompanying Run the Jewels’ Record Store Day release, which is a pair of cardboard glasses dubbed “VRTJ” that can be used to watch the “Crown” video on a smartphone. The Mountain Will Fall is out June 24 from Mass Appeal Records. Listen to “Nobody Speak” below.
