What do you get when you cross a reigning hip-hop DJ with one of today’s hottest acts? The incredibly banging, new track from DJ Shadow, “Nobody Speak” featuring Run the Jewels. It’s the latest to be released from Shadow’s forthcoming album, The Mountain Will Fall due June 24th.
For all you youngins out there, DJ Shadow helped blaze the 2000s DJ scene with his critically acclaimed, 1996 debut, Entroducing. That album has since been called one of the best albums of all-time by numerous publications like Rolling Stone, Pitchfork and Slant. He has since gone on to continue his experimental music with an arsenal of over 60,000 records.
Of course, Run the Jewels is the combination of Killer Mike and El-P. After debuting their first, self-titled album for FREE in 2013, Run the Jewels has since gone on to become one of the hottest acts in hip hop. Whether it’s Coachella, Bonaroo, Madison Square Garden, or supporting presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, Run the Jewels has infiltrated pop culture as well as the playlists of every teenager to 30-something.
This latest track is the best mix of both worlds. DJ Shadow mixes a beat as cool as anything on a Tarantino soundtrack while Killer Mike bodies the mic with his deadly delivery. Bump this one loud and get in a euphoric state of mind.
