The Black Keys
weren't satisfied with just rocking in their own genre, so they enlisted Damon Dash to create BlakRoc
, a collection of Keys-backed jams with well-known rappers contributing rhymes. Now several blogs have noticed the trailer for BlakRoc 2
is floating around, and it promises more of the same gritty blues beats backing rhymesmiths like Talib Kweli, U God (Wu-Tang Clan), Jay Electronica, Wiz Khalifa, The Cool Kids, Jim Jones, and more. Check it out below and help us think of potential sequel names.
I know I was skeptical about the first offering being anything special
, but this lineup looks WOWZA. Check it.
Some name ideas:
BlackRoc 2: Electric Boogaloo
BlackRoc 2: Black In The Saddle
B2: The Mighty Blunts
