With co-production from DJ Snake.

Nas and DJ Shadow have teamed up to record a new track for HBO show Silicon Valley.

The song will feature on the Season 4 premiere of Silicon Valley on April 23 – listen below.

It’s not clear yet whether ‘Systematic’ will appear on either artist’s forthcoming albums or whether it was recorded solely for the soundtrack. Last year, DJ Shadow released his first LP in six years on Nas’ Mass Appeal Records, while Nas is expected to drop his 11th studio album this year.

Back in February, it was also announced a new biopic about the Illmatic rapper, titled Street Dreamsis in the works.
