Beloved underground hip-hop/trip-hop producer DJ Shadow took to the stage of the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday to promote his upcoming album The Mountain Will Fall. Joining him for the night were collaborators Run The Jewels, who feature on the album’s incredible lead single Nobody Speak.
The trio performed the lead single from The Mountain Will Fall further accompanied by a live wind section. Killer Mike ended the performance with a dedication “to all the victims of violence from Chicago to Orlando.”
