Every now and then you come across a collaboration that you never realized just how much you wanted, I think that’s the collective mindset when music lovers everywhere saw the credits that featured DJ Shadow and Run The Jewels on ‘Nobody Speak.’
The track is jam-packed with organic sounds interlaced with hip-hop beats that made DJ Shadow a legend in the music world. The smooth guitar sounds combined with progressive horns and the unforgettable rhymes from EL-P and Killer Mike make this a track not to be missed. This song can be found on DJ Shadow’s forthcoming album The Mountain Will Fall.
DJ Shadow had this to say to Pitchfork regarding the collaboration –
“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.”
