Earlier this week, Run the Jewels shared their contribution to the Cyberpunk 2077 soundtrack, ‘No Save Point’. During their appearance at the Adult Swim festival on Friday (November 13), they premiered the track’s futuristic music video. Check it out below.
El-P and Killer Mike also discussed their partnership with Cyberpunk 2077 and how that influenced the making of the new track.
“I wanted to feel like you could listen to this jam in a flying car, and at the same time have a hard ass just drum break feeling jam for the exact reason that I really think hardcore dope rap is gonna be around in the future,” El-P explained. “We were trying to fuse a cinematic, futuristic sound with something that was just gonna break your neck when you heard it, and I think we kinda pulled it off.”
“The beauty with video games and movies and stuff is you get to kind of suspend disbelief and tell your truth in that mythology,” Killer Mike added. “For very real truth, in the United States, we know that medicine is better and more affordable for rich people. And we know that there are countries that exist now where poor people have to sell kidneys in order to sustain themselves. This game addresses this very serious issue in a way that’s entertaining; it’s enlightened; it’s dope — but it makes you think of the what ifs.”
