The BlakRoc project is getting mad press these days, so we thought we’d update our last post and bring it back to all you loyal readers. As you know, the concept is that the Black Keys (a rock band) have collaborated with 11 hip hop/R&B artists. They’ve done stuff with the RZA, Mos Def, Ludacris, Pharoahe Monche, and Q-Tip.
Now, I haven’t been a big fan of these type of collaborations before. I mean, quite honestly, Mos Def’s affinity for this (remember The New Danger?) style has been the most to me, but even that didn’t win me over. Still, BlakRoc does a decent job of blending this all together in a way that sounds dope.
Below is their collaboration with our man, the mighty Mos Def to give you a little taste.
