DJ Shadow and Run The Jewels Get Caught Up in a Fist Fight for Their “Nobody Speak” Video
DJ Shadow and Run The Jewels don't mess around. The disc jockey and dynamic duo teamed up for the track "Nobody Speak" off Shadow's last album and now (Aug. 24), the guys have given the music the video treatment.
It seems to be business as usual in a diplomatic meeting of the minds until a few out-of-line comments—courtesy of El-P and Killer Mike lyrics— turns the whole political party upside down. As the meeting erupts into chaos, Shadow and the rappers make only quick cameos as confused party members who get caught up in the melee. We're not sure where the chickens or pig came from, but things escalate quickly in this diplomatic fist fight.
"Nobody Speak" is a standout single from Shadow's latest project, The Mountain Will Fall. Released under Mass Appeal Records back in June, the 12-track album marks Shadows first music release in five years.
"We wanted to make a positive, life-affirming video that captures politicians at their election-year best. We got this instead,” joked Shadow when explaining the plot of this hilarious visual.
"It's such a dope video," said Killer Mike. "It's what I really wish Trump and Hillary would just do and get it over with...And even in that fight I think Hillary would win - and that's not an endorsement."
Killer Mike has been an avid endorser of former Democratic presidential nominee Bernie Sanders for the last year, so a politically-charged music video is right up his alley. Unfortunately, Sanders lost the nomination to Hillary Clinton earlier this spring. Mike said in a recent statement that he won't be voting for either Hillary or Republican nominee Donald Trump on Election Day come November.
