The soulful, foot-stomping wall of sound known as The Black Keys has just released
a smokin’ new YouTube video to announce (what everyone hopes is the impending release of) a sequel to their 2009 hip-hop hybrid, Blakroc. Overseen by rap empresario, Damon Dash, Blakroc 2 will feature the verbal stylings of Talib Kweli, U-God, the Cool Kids, and Curren$y, among others, who will be rapping over Black Keys tracks. After listening to
a few samples from the original Blakroc, I must say that I’m looking forward to the sequel –
great music that truly inspires.
