zach“Digging for Windows” is the new, El-P produced,  Zack de la Rocha solo track and it is oh so good.

This collaboration was introduced to us through the bombastic “Close Your Eyes and Count to Fuck” .. and here we are with another track and promise of a collaborative album. Christmas came way early this year.

This track is amazing and it makes me realize how much I missed Rage and Zack’s vocals.  The most encouraging thing about this track is that it doesn’t sound like its trying to replicate Rage Against the Machine. It’s a step in a new direction and that’s exciting. El-P’s production is really interesting on this track and the vocals are everything I’ve been craving since pretty much “Run The Jewels.”


fuck that bright shit

the spot or the flashlights
we in la ducking both
in the shadows with lead pipes
the days are all night

see if i pay edison
no medicine
these blues ain’t more better when
my fever rise in the jungle
as quick as the price spikes
the days are all night

my future snapped like a rubber band
off my fold on a hand to hand
he drew from his waist
i put two in his roof
and i can still hear his screams
all night

now they ride their portfolios
like rodeos
rise every time my cherry glows
on the end of my cig as
the smoke blows through the bars
and the co’s laugh fades
as he strolls away
says i gotta pay
off that roll away
or its fuck your visitation days
and i pop off so in solitaire
i dream of offing these fred astaires
and the skin off my fingers tear
we digging for windows here
where the days are all night

this city’s a trap my partner
under the lights of they choppers
bodies tools for they coffers
not worth the cost of our coffins
i stare at a future so toxic
no trust in the dust of a promise
won’t mark the name on a ballot
so they can be free to devour our options
and just like you I’m a target
ill defined by the guap in my pocket
but the stage make figures
as quick as it off em
what marley and pac get?
i put these caps in capitals
leave minds blazed in they capitols
i step with a fury so actual fact
that my offense could be capital

we digging for windows here
