DJ Shadow’s ‘Nobody Speak’ Has Politicians Brawling Like You’ve Never Seen

A verbal altercation quickly escalates into an all-out brawl.


It’s no secret that Run The Jewels’ Killer Mike is highly interested in politics. But to hear and see his razor-sharp politically-driven lyrics from DJ Shadow’s latest single “Nobody Speak” come to life on video—well—it’s a whole ‘nother level.

The the new video directed by Sam Pilling features stereotypically docile politicians acting out the lyrics to the song in a way that appears all too real. A verbal altercation quickly escalates into an all-out brawl. Papers fly, pigs squeal… The actors were clearly invested in this production.
