Maybe you’ve heard about this upcoming collaboration between The Black Keys and a wide assortment of some of hip-hop’s biggest names, but if not here’s the scoop (knew about this for a few weeks but was reminded today via Music For Kids Who Can‘t Read Good). Damon Dash, of Roc-A-Fella Records, has brought together Mos Def, Raekwon, RZA, Q-Tip and several others to add their talents over music played by Denton, TX’s best indie-blues-rock band, The Black Keys. The entire project was conceived and seen through in 11 days. The album, known as Blakroc and due, when else, on Black Friday (11/27), follows excellent solo albums this year already from Mos Def (The Ecstatic) and Keys singer Dan Auerbach (Keep It Hid).
