Ohio blues-rock duo The Black Keys are currently hard at work on a hip-hop/rock side project known as Blakroc. The idea for the hybrid project actually came about after rapper Jim Jones and Roc-A-Fella records co-founder Dame Dash approached them. Featured on the upcoming album are some of the biggest names in hip-hop, including Mos Def, Wu-Tang’s RZA & Raekwon, Q-Tip, Ludacris, Pharoahe Monch, and more. They’ve been producing a series of weekly webisodes that have been generating a ton of hype.
