DJ SHADOW & DE LA SOUL – Rocket Fuel

DJ Shadow releases his latest video “Rocket Fuel feat. De La Soul” – a chaotic re-imagining of man’s first steps on the moon – directed by Sam Pilling (who also directed DJ Shadow’s “Nobody Speak feat Run The Jewels”). DJ Shadow’s double album Our Pathetic Age is releasing 11/15 on Mass Appeal!

“Rocket Fuel” is a hard-charging reemergence for DJ Shadow, long celebrated as a pivotal artist in experimental, instrumental hip-hop. The song explodes with stacks of vocal samples, horns, Shadow’s dazzling DJ scratch work and a muscular performance from the legendary rap crew De La Soul.

[Intro]
Ladies and gentlemen
Ladies and gentlemen
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Get ready, y’all
Get ready
Ready‚ set
Steady‚ bet
Get ready
Ready‚ set
Steady, bet
Get ready

[Verse 1]
This be the green light, go
Tires burn the pavement
People wanna know where Mase‚ Pos, and Dave went
Still here, still in your ear
With a style so hot‚ you’ll see where all the sun rays went
Legs, arms, and head all being moved in a frenzy
The blends be all the right cred
Meaning credentials
Best of both worlds
When we rocking over pearls in the instrumental

[Chorus]
Are you ready? (Ready) Set? (Set)
Jump to the rhythm as hard as you can go
Keep it steady (Steady), to the letter, right? (Bet)
Turn it up, we giving a show
But can you rock it like rocket fuel?
What you talking ‘bout? Space or out your mind?
But can you rock it like rocket, fool?
That’s a close encounter of what kind?

[Post-Chorus]
I’m a disc jockey
What’s a disc jockey?

[Verse 2]
When it was time to get it lit we got it hot like fever
Sick with the talk, pass to your receiver
All about running the spot
And you know we got breath control so no need to take a breather
Cardio kingpins
Subjugate the dubplate
And you know we can’t wait to bring spins
Aced all quizzes, A-plussed the final
Vocals we align, we move it all simultaneously over joints we rock
We earned thirty years, so you can say that we got
Three turns, live off the board, unlike you and your chessmen
We install doubt in you and your yes-men
And if the game have veins, we’ll insert the needle, upheaval the ground
‘Cause the adrenaline we blend with the sound
Is our thing, relieving the kings of all crowns

[Chorus]
So are you ready? (Ready), are you set? (Set)
Then jump to the rhythm as hard as you can go
Keep it steady (Steady), to the letter, right? (Bet)
Turn it up, y’all, peep the flow
But can you rock it like rocket fuel?
What you talking ‘bout? Space or out your mind?
But can you rock it like rocket, fool?
That’s a close encounter of what kind?

[Bridge]
Ready, set
Steady, bet
Then jump to the rhythm as hard as you can go
Turn it up, y’all, peep the flow

[Chorus]
Are you ready? (Ready) Set? (Set)
Jump to the rhythm as hard as you can go
Keep it steady (Steady), to the letter, right? (Bet)
Turn it up, we giving a show
But can you rock it like rocket fuel?
What you talking ‘bout? Space or out your mind?
But can you rock it like rocket, fool?
That’s a close encounter of what kind?

[Post-Chorus]
Ready, set
Steady, bet

[Outro]
But can you rock it like rocket fuel?
