So, last week this gem happened. Yep, DJ Shadow & Run The Jewels!
Kept this for the day I really feel i need this kind of dope vibe and after 4 coffees and an intense work day, "Nobody Speak" is the only soundtrack of my life I need.
I mean, DJ Shadow is literally a beast when it comes to instrumental hip hop. On the other side, Run The Jewels (Killer Mike & El-P's hip hop supergroup, who we should have probably wrote about already) destroy. Literally.
The track will be part of DJ Shadow's upcoming album The Mountain Will Fall. (June 24th). Here's a few quotes I found on his SoundCloud:
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. Fortunately, they agreed, and they took the track to a place I could never get to on my own. That's the definition of a rewarding collaboration.
