Earlier this year, DJ Shadow recruited Run The Jewels’ Killer Mike and El-P to spit furious verses on “Nobody Speak,” the best song on his new comeback album The Mountain Will Fall. Today, we get the video for the song, and it’s so fucking great. The clip, from director Sam Pilling, takes place at a UN-style meeting of diplomats. It starts out with two politicians angrily lip-syncing El and Mike’s lyrics at each other, and it escalates into an all-out brawl. Shadow, Mike, El, a pig, and a chicken all make cameo appearances. I cannot possibly recommend this fucking video enough. Chances are it’s the best thing you’ll see all day. Watch it and read some quotes about it from Shadow and Mike below.
In a press release, Shadow says, “We wanted to make a positive, life-affirming video that captures politicians at their election-year best. We got this instead.
Meanwhile, Mike says, “It’s such a dope video. 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.
The Mountain Will Fall is out now on Mass Appeal.
