The Ohio-based dirty, filthy blues duo Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, known as The Black Keys, have set up shop in Brooklyn with one tough crew of hip hop legends to create the super group, Blakroc. Legends like Wu Tang’s RZA and the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Raekwon, Q-Tip, Ludacris, Pharoahe Monch, M.O.P.’s Billy Danze, and Mos Def. It’s silly.
They got a web series on the whole project, The Blakroc Sessions that I highly recommend. The music is good and the process of these players is worth the watch. Of course, shit is hilarious too, what with all the talk and the blazing.
A new viddy is out for the song “Ain’t Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo)” that shows off a bit of Mos Def and rapper Jim Jones. Check that out and a trailer for the web series:
