Just thought I'd share this with you guys:

Collaboration of the well-known blues rock band The Black Keys and several Hip Hop artists (e.g. Raekwon, Mos Def, RZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard etc.) jumping on the 'mashup' bandwagon. Although there are some letdowns every now and then on this LP, this isn't that bad an album.

For a project that could have gone drastically wrong, ‘Blakroc’ is best summarised by Raekwon: “The Blakroc project is brilliant acid.”
