The Blakroc Sessions: Chapter One

mos-def-black-keys-blakroc-2

In the first webisode of The Blakroc Sessions, we are introduced to a few of the major players in the hybrid hip-hop/rock project. These include Dame Dash of Roc-A-Fella records, Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, and MC/actor Mos Def. We are also given a glimpse into the Keys’ sick Brooklyn studio where Blackroc will be recorded.

Be sure to check out the end of the clip, where Auerbach plays his track for Mos Def outside on the street. Mos Def goes on to harmonize over the beat and it sounds like he’s going to come up with some sick lines. Watch it now!
