Awesome epic video, for an awesome epic track.
We have talked before about Run the Jewels on this site but demm DJ Shadow. This guy has a couple of remarkable beats in his belt since 1996, but when he made this beat, he went over the top. In his own words:
“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.”
