Killer Mike and El-P flip a Keanu Reeves reference on their contribution to the soundtrack of one of gaming’s most exciting titles.
The highly-anticipated dystopian future video game Cyberpunk 2077 has just revealed an offering from one of the biggest musical contributors.
“No Save Point” is the track from Run The Jewels that are among the soundtrack’s most exciting talking points. The duo of Killer Mike and El-P, join the likes of Grimes, A$AP Rocky, Ilan Rubin, Nina Kravitz, Refused, and more for a musical companion to the game that only amplifies the hype surrounding the release.
In the trailer showcasing the artists featured for the soundtrack, El-P chimes in, “Even in the dystopian future, hard rap lives on,” with Killer Mike adding, “We want to provide you with the soundtrack for fucking shit up.”
The game developed by the same CD Projekt team that produced the wildly-successful The Witcher franchise has continued the rollout for entry that is among the most discussed of any genre. The game features Keanu Reeves in as the game’s protagonist adding an element of starpower that only makes this even more of an essential title.
It’s worth noting that Run The Jewels stay on brand with the track, referencing the game’s lead character with fluid wordplay,
“Cyberpunk holding a pump, Keanu Reeves, cyberarm under my sleeve. I’ll blast ’em all, watch ’em fall like Autumn leaves.”
