One of modern folk’s most eccentric musicians channels his inner Velvet Underground on this new cut. Consider it the last song of summer.

Introducing Blak Roc…

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Here’s a new promotional video for the upcoming Dame Dash/Black Keys project Blak Roc, dropping Black Friday.

Q-Tip | “Barely In Love” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Tip performed with the Legendary Foundation last night to hype the still-hard-to-believe release of his 2001 experimental project, Kamaal/The Abstract. I can only imagine how happy Tip is to be able to sing a song from the album on national television after so many years of label frustration. You have to give it to him, he holds it down despite his musical limitations.

The Black Keys – Hoochie Coo (Feat. Mos Def & Jim Jones)

Dame Dash recently reached out to The Black Keys to see if they were interested in Hip-Hop. What resulted is Blak Roc, an album pairing the Keys with rappers including Q-Tip, Ludacris, Raekwon, Pharaoh Monche, & ODB. The LP will apparently be released independently by Dash, who had this to say:
My assistants, who are now actually A&Rs, were going to a Black Keys concert for their birthday and I wasn’t invited,” he explained. “Usually on their birthdays we all do it together and the reason why I wasn’t invited was because the concert was sold out . And I had never heard of The Black Keys and I was like y’all still gonna go without me. And they was like ‘Yo it’s The Black Keys.” So I was like, lemme hear this group. So I start listening to them and they actually became my favorite group. They were on heavy rotation so we just reached out and we kicked it with them and I was like, ‘I wonder what would happen if we got Jim Jones and the Keys in the studio’ and Jim came in and all of a sudden Mos came in and then [it] just built from there.
