Hey kids, are you fans of The Black Keys? Do you like your rap/Hip Hop?
If so, then check out what happens when the Black Keys get together with some of the biggest names in Rap and Hip Hop:
This is seriously cool stuff. And it’s just one track off the upcoming CD from Blakroc. This entire album is the Black Keys collaborating with various hip hop artists like Ludacris, Wu Tang Clan, Mos Def, and others, and the results are astonishing. It sounds like a new genre of music, and the fit is incredible.
If you want to hear more, there’s a multi-part ‘webisode’ on the making of the cd. Here’s Part 1 on Youtube. You can follow sidebar links for the other parts.
This is the most anticipated album of the year for me. I think it might be a monster crossover smash. But even if it doesn’t find a huge audience, it sounds spectacular. It comes out on Nov 27.
I’d be interested in what the rest of you think about this.
