DJ Shadow ft. Run The Jewels - Nobody Speak

Story by

Saying I’ve been a follower of DJ Shadow since his trailblazing 1997 album Preemptive Strike would be understatement. I’d go as far as saying it’s one of the best records in my collection of one of my favorite artists. Hence, naturally his latest album The Mountain Will Fall has been spinning on my iTunes for a while now.

Nobody Speak is one of the highlights of the new LP published June 24th 2016, but it was only two weeks ago that the music video for the track was released.

The master doesn’t disappoint—cast, idea and execution are nothing short of epic. I would love the idea of taking this form of politics to our election campaigns and parliaments to settle some unresolved issues. Well, violence we have enough already—let’s stick with the battle rap.

Piggy for president!
