Blakroc – Coochie ft. Mos Def & Jim Jones

black keys - blakroc artists
Over the course of 11 days, The Black Keys got together with 11 Hip Hop legends, to lay down 11 tracks in a Brooklyn studio…which will come together to comprise an eargasmic album titled, Blakroc. Get excited because what I’ve seen and heard so far is amazing.

With the help of Damon Dash, the Keys were able to get Mos Def, RZA, Raekwon, Q-Tip, Ludacris, Pharoahe Monch, M.O.P.’s Billy Danze, Jim Jones, and the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard to come rhyme for them (well… ODB didn’t really go anywhere or actually do anything but I’m sure he woulda). Check the teaser video below to see Raekwon the chef reading lyrics off his blackberry… or even better, check the full length trailer at the official website to see the whole process coming together… top moment: Black Keys play a song for Mos Def in a car stereo, a smile creeps across his face and he goes into the studio like a giddie school girl to write the lyrics for “Coochie.” Does mighty Mos ever remind you of a ‘special’ kid? Tracklist after the jump.

Tracklist:
1. Coochie
2. On The Vista
3. Hard Times
4. Dollaz & Sense
5. Why Can’t I Forget Him
