“Occasionally, I make a beat that demands a specific vocal treatment and attitude,” DJ Shadow shared. “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.”
When asked to jump on the record, El-P says he and Killer Mike didn’t blink, noting “when [Shadow] makes music he often changes music forever.”
