Pusha T, Raekwon and Joel Ortiz team-up from “Tick, Tock” a new song from RZA’s The Man With the Iron Fists Soundtrack.  ”Tick, Tock” is produced by Frank Dukes and S-1.  I think posting you-tube videos of just songs is kinda corny. But this song is dope and you have to listen to it somehow.

Soundtrack out October 23rd

MP3:Gravediggaz-Two More Cups of Blood


Rza just twittered this as a halloween “gift”.
Not as rowdy as the previous 2 Cups of Blood, but is nice to hear a new Gravediggaz song.

MC Hammer So Appalled @ Jay-z Via Kanye

Soo…MC Hammer didn’t like Jay-z’s line about not worrying about blowing 30,000,000 dollars like MC Hammer on Kanye’s “So Appalled” posse cut which already was commenting on how ridiculous some rap beefs are:

Blakroc: Video of Rza Recording With The Black Keys.

YouTube Preview Image

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.

UPDATED: Exclusive…Black Keys New Hip Hop Project: Blakroc

UPDATE: Blakroc’s official website is now live.

Here in Ohio, the rumors of a Black Keys produced Hip Hop project intially started by a Jim Jones on Twitter awhile back are becoming a reality by Patrick Carney twittering ” Blakroc” a few hours ago. The current word swinging around Columbus graffiti and weirdo creep circles about the Blakroc project like chains and exhaust is this:

Blakroc is a hip hop album produced by the Black Keys that features Rza, Raekwon, Mos Def, Jim Jones, Pharoah Monch, Q-tip, Ludacris, ODB, Billy Danze of M.O.P., Noe and Nicole Wray.

The album has 11 songs and will be released 11 weeks from today on Black Friday (the Friday after Thanksgiving).

The album is being released on a label started by Dame Dash and The Black Keys management.

Given that Rae, and Mos Def both put out their best albums in a decade this past year, I have a pretty good feeling about this record and NYC golden era Hip Hop artists in general.

(And I live in a city where we throw parades for our lost local Hip Hop icons. So us Ohioans take our Hip Hop seriously)
