Zack de la Rocha & Run The Jewels

Rage Against The Machine’s Zack de la Rocha Appears In New Run The Jewels Video


Had the COVID-19 pandemic not hit and wiped out touring for the foreseeable future, Rage Against The Machine would have already played their first live shows back by now. The group reunited late last year and had extensive touring plans booked with Run The Jewels for the spring and beyond. However, as it stands they have currently postponed their shows through till July.

While you can’t catch them onstage together, you can see Rage Against The Machine frontman Zack de la Rocha make some brief appearances in Run The Jewel‘s newly-released video for their track “Ooo LA LA“, which features guest spots from Greg Nice and DJ Premier. Zack has thus far guested on the majority of Run The Jewels‘ releases with the rap duo planning to release their fourth album in the near future.

Run The Jewels commented of this video:

“We shot this video only a few weeks before the pandemic hit with no clue as to what the future held. the fact that we got the chance to do it is damn near miraculous in hindsight. In conceptualizing the video with our friends Brian and Vanessa Beletic we imagined the world on the day that the age old struggle of class was finally over.

A day that humanity, empathy, and community were victorious over the forces that would separate us based on arbitrary systems created by man. This video is a fantasy of waking up on a day that there is no monetary system, no dividing line, no false construct to tell our fellow man that they are less or more than anyone else.

Not that people are without but that the whole meaning of money has vanished. That we have somehow solved our self created caste system and can now start fresh with love, hope and celebration. It’s a dream of humanity’s V-DAY… and the party we know would pop off.”

Though full scale touring in 2020 seems unrealistic at this point, Rage Against The Machine and Run The Jewels currently have the following dates booked together:
