Rap rock normally gets a bad rap (mostly because of Fred Durst) but Blakroc, a project featuring the Black Keys and a bunch of hip hop artists brought in by Damon Dash, was an underappreciated gem. I assumed it was going to be a one off project but now it looks like a second album is about ready for release. Watch the trailer below and marvel at the bevy of talent involved.
If you are confused by what this might sound like, here are a few cuts from the the first Blakroc album.
Blakroc – On the Vista (Mos Def)
Blakroc – Coochie (Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Ludacris)
