Remember when Black Keys were in Mass Appeal Magazine alongtime ago?
(I read it at a Books A Million in Lafayatte, Louisiana during the process of stealing the Espo book, “the Art of Getting Over”. I had already placed the book in my pants, and was flipping through magazines to ensure no one was following me.The article was about how this Akron band really liked the Wu-Tang Clan. So I stole that magazine too by curling it up and sliding the periodical up my shirt sleeve. Kinda risky but it was an impulse theft.)
Flash Foward a decade later.
Black Keys doing a Hip Hop album, Blakroc, with a zillion legends.
So Rza walks in the studio and says, ‘can I play some awkward guitar licks for y’all to build off of.’
Black Keys ,” sure!!”
So just as a fan, its kinda bugged to see Rza play guitar, rap and smoke weed with the Arkon band. Enjoyed watching the video throughly.
below is what is what one of the songs with the RZA sounds like. Also features Pharoach Monch of Organized Konfusion/ “Simon Says Get the fuck up” fame.
Blakroc comes out November 27th.
