A couple of weeks ago I did a song for Blakroc, The Black Keys hip-hop outfit. I was surprised that I hadn’t done a sketch for The Black Keys yet. If you aren’t familiar with them, their sound reminds me a bit of Jimi Hendrix with a heavily distorted blues sound and songs that typically deal with heart break and messed up relationships. They just released a new album that is supposed to be incredible. I haven’t heard the whole thing yet, but the bits I’ve heard are awesome. I guess I’ll be purchasing that album soon.

Blakroc is the brilliant side project from the Black Keys featuring hip-hop stars like Mos Def, RZA, and Q-Tip. The album is short but it’s packed with solid material. I really wanted to do a sketch of “Ain’t Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo),” but I never came up with a visual. I hope Blakroc isn’t just a one-time thing, because I’m ready for new material.
