    Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney are best known for their blues rock team-up known as The Black Keys, but they will soon be going by a new name. The pair have decided to dabble in a hip-hop, rap, rock hybrid record, calling themselves BlakRoc, and featuring a guest list with some really great wordsmiths, including Raekwon, Mos Def, and even the late Ol' Dirty Bastard.

    Beat-smart Damon Dash is producing the record, but from the preview (below) we can expect Dan and Patrick will provide most of the music. And what happened to their Attack And Release buddy Dangermouse? He knows beats! He must be busy. Lyrics will be provided by the aforementioned rappers, along with contributions from Q-Tip, RZA, Jim Jones, Ludacris, Nikki Wray, and Billy Danze. Check out the teaser:


    Sounds vaguely like an all-star Roots-esque jam album, no? BlakRoc is available for preorder on the Black Keys website, and will be released on 11/27 ("Blak Friday" ... get it?). A Black Keys rap record... "Strange Times" indeed. -joe puglisi

    1. Coochie
    2. On The Vista
    3. Hard Times
    4. Dollaz & Sense
