iTunes Review

When hip-hop producer and industry executive Damon Dash decided the Black Keys were one of his favorite artists, he contacted the duo and initialized a recording project, hooking the Keys up with rapper Jim Jones. Other hip-hop artists soon came aboard, and BlakRoc is the result of what one imagines to have been numerous hazy, smoke-filled late nights in the studio. The beauty here lies in the easy, almost organic feeling of the recordings, with flows and rhymes of varying intensities syncing up with the Black Keys’ gritty, psych-tinged blues with surprisingly satisfying results. Artists like Raekwon, NOE and RZA bring the street edge, and a sultry layer of R&B is delivered by Nicole Wray; a heavy lidded Mos Def spars lazily and delightfully with Dan Auerbach’s brawny guitars. Black Keys fans will especially get their groove on to “What You Do to Me” and the single, “Ain’t Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo),” where the Keys’ undulant grind and Auerbach’s own rusty-throated growl mingle gloriously with their rapping counterparts.

Customer Reviews

Where is the ODB track

Where is the ODB track Coochie? It's listed on the BlakRoc website and on the listening preview the BlakRoc website had the other night. I was going to buy the album from itunes but it doesn't have all the tracks.

ODB/Luda

The ODB/Ludacris song is only available on the CD and LP versions.

brilliance!

This album is pure genius. Outside of missing the odb & luda track, I'm willing to pay for this album if only to show support for this sort of musical choice! Some people may yearn for the Keys older stuff but I am more than happy to see them take this route. Especially when such smart decisions are made. Thank you Black Keys and every contributing artist, pair of hands or brain that contributed to this, every single one of you make me WANT to buy music.
