With so much racial tension and stories of corruption in politics this election season, it’s shocking we haven’t seen politicians unleash their anger in a fit of rage. If you would pay to see Donald Trump, Hilary Clinton, and key players from their campaigns engage in a chaotic smackdown, then look no further. DJ Shadow and Run The Jewels are here to help make that fantasy become reality… sort of.
“We wanted to make a positive, life-affirming video that captures politicians at their election-year best,” Shadow said in the video’s description. “We got this instead.”
After dropping a brief preview of the melee on Twitter, Killer Mike, El-P, and Shadow drop the video for “Nobody Speaks” off DJ Shadow’s The Mountain Will Fall album. All three musicians act as the flies on the wall during a meeting between infuriated politicians who can’t hold in their anger and disgust any longer. As the meeting becomes more heated, the leaders of the committee start pushing and shoving, which incites a riot amongst their respective squads.
Watch the political firestorm rain down onto this riot in the conference room in “Nobody Speaks” below.
