So the new issue of Relix just turned me on to BLAKROC - a new album coming out featuring the Black Keys, w/ guest spots by the RZA, Q-Tip, Mos Def among other MC's. The whole thing came to fruition when Damon Dash reached out to the Keys about having his artist (Jim Jones) collaborate on an album. Once they got going, Dash reached out to a variety of other MC's who all wanted to contribute to this unique outfit. The results are fittingly awesome. I't seems the guys from the Black Keys are on a creative high right now, with both members following up their last albums with 2 solo records.....and now this. Check out the above clip (which is the 1st in a series of 8) to see what its all about.

FanF*ckingTastic..what a plethora a AMAZING artists.

Glad to see Relix step it up a bit. CAUSE IMO it's been real lousy for a while. I don't give two shits about noodle- wannabe- hippie bands. To each their own, but i'm glad they are expanding a bit. One could read so many SCI and pnuma trio reviews, before putting one's finger, down one's whiskey stained throat and puking all over the amatuer articles.
