Black Keys Get Even Grittier

Black Keys Get Even Grittier

The Akron Ohio duo known for their gritty, guitar riffs and rusty, sun-baked vocals are embarking on a collaboration that might leave their fans a little confused. They are working with Dame Dash on The BlackRoc Project which pairs them with some of the hardest and most esoteric rappers in the industry including: Raekwon, Billy Danze, Mos Def, Jim Jones, Pharoah Monch etc. The first few leaks sound quite delectable and the full project drops in November. It’s an interesting union but somehow it works really well.
