The winds are a changin'. Rock and Hip-Hop collabs are definitely not new but there is a rise in rock/hip-hop collabs as of late. The recent collaborations have been amazing but I definitely didn't see this one coming. The Black Keys have teamed up with Jim Jones and launched a new project called Blackroc. Their debut album will carry some heavy weight with guest appearances from artists such as: Mos Def, Q-Tip, Raekwon, the late Ol' Dirty Bastard, RZA, Ludacris, and Pharoahe Monch to name a few.
The track posted here is called "Hoochie Coo" and this track definitely showcases the amazing power that can be brought with a hip-hop/rock colloboration. Got some nice rock-esque drums and then you got the lyrical flow of Mos Def and Jim Jones and you got a hot track. Also there is a video trailer of the album below. Check them out below:
