Rage Against The Machine's Zach De La Rocha Shares Debut Solo Single "Digging For Windows"

When the supergroup Prophets Of Rage was forged, many wondered whether Rage Against The Machine frontman Zack De La Rocha might make an appearance with his old crew. We pondered and quickly learned that wouldn’t be the case no matter how hard we attempted to will it into existence. Nearly four months have passed, rumors of a solo De La Rocha project began to propagate, and today, those whispers have turned to full-on roars with the release of his debut solo single “Digging For Windows.”

The track features production from El-P (who De La Rocha had collaborated with on the 2014 Run The Jewels single “Close Your Eyes (And Count To Fuck)” as well as additional contributions from Nick Hook and Matt Sweeney. And so, with a full Rage Against The Machine reunion looking like it’s farther and farther down the pipeline, it appears we may just get the next best thing (or a much better thing, depending on preference.) Hear Zach De La Rocha’s fiery debut solo single “Digging For Windows” down below along with the track’s lyrics and take it home with you for the righteously low price of free. Keep your eyes on us and an ear to the ground for

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
