'Silicon Valley' is getting a soundtrack on Mass Appeal Records and the first single from the full length is DJ Shadow's "Systematic" featuring Nas.

DJ Shadow & Nas’ “Systematic” Launches the ‘Silicon Valley’ Soundtrack

You should know that Mike Judge—the guy who blessed the world with cultural greatness like Office SpaceBeavis & ButtheadIdiocracy and more—has a soft spot for rap. Well, now HBO’s Silicon Valley, his hilarious satire of the tech industry, is getting a soundtrack courtesy of Mass Appeal Records. The first track from it is a DJ Shadow cut called “Systematic,” featuring lyrical contributions from Nas.

Over breakbeat drums, a funk guitar loop and some fat Hackers synths, Nas covers gamut of topics in his verses, dropping references to everything from the Occupy movement and selling legal arms in the hood, to his relevant status as an angel investor. He raps, “Art, music, letters and numbers/ I’m a vessel, I’m humble/ Meetin’ startups, I invest if I want to/ Transforming global markets with all of my partners.”

The track premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show and is now available to stream. Other songs from the soundtrack will drop as Silicon Valley‘s fourth season progresses until the whole collection is released on June 16. Season 4 will start airing on HBO this Sunday, April 23.
