Stream ‘Silicon Valley: The Soundtrack,’ Featuring Nas, Run the Jewels, Wu-Tang and More
A Mass Appeal and HBO collaboration, streaming now
All spring, we’ve been premiering songs from Silicon Valley: The Soundtrack, which we’ve been rolling out week by week ahead of new episodes from the popular HBO show’s fourth season. With the season finale airing on Sunday, we’re excited to announce the release of the full soundtrack, now streaming and for sale everywhere.
The soundtrack, which arrives via Mass Appeal Records, features original music from some of the most inventive artists in hip hop, including Danny Brown, Nas, Old Man Saxon and the Wu-Tang Clan, as well as DJ Shadow, Hudson Mohawke and the Dr. Octagon classic, “Blue Flowers.”
The HBO show, which centers around the booming tech startup scene in California, was created by known hip hop head and music lover Mike Judge (Beavis & Butt-head, Office Space and Idiocracy, among others). With a 98 percent Rotten Tomatoes Score, it’s one of the most highly-acclaimed original series on HBO. Nas—co-founder of Mass Appeal Records—has a known interest in the startup scene, making this soundtrack somewhat of a perfect marriage.
Though the soundtrack’s singles boast a hefty set of guest names, there’s more to be desired on the full project, including a couple of exciting collaborations. DJ Shadow makes another appearance on the tracklist alongside Run the Jewels, while tracks from Hudson Mohawke and Remy Banks, Too $hort and OG Swaggerdick and more help round the project out.
In addition, fans are treated to an original new banger from Inspectah Deck, Method Man and Raekwon, three pillars of the iconic Wu-Tang Clan. The trio is featured on a track called “Don’t Stop,” which you can lisen to below.
Still, we’ll let the music do the talking. You can stream Silicon Valley on Spotify, Apple Music and Soundcloud, below, as well as purchase it on iTunes now.
