A rock/rock hybrid project with big potential, BlakRoc started as a collaboration between the Black Keys and Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Damon Dash. Blending Dan AuerbachÃ†s and Patrick Carney's macho take on sparse, bluesy soul beats with DashÃ†s A-list rap connections, the debut album was recorded in Brooklyn and featured guests Mos Def, Q-Tip, Billy Danze, Jim Jones, Ludacris, Nicole Wray, NOE, Raekwon, RZA, and Pharoahe Monch, as well as pre-recorded vocals by Ol' Dirty Bastard. Fittingly, the album, simply titled BlakRoc, was released on Ã´Black Friday,Ã¶ November 27, 2009, on the Black Keys' and Damon Dash's own startup label BlakRoc. ~ Jason Lymangrover, RoviPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
