  • about this album

    The brainchild of The Black Keys and Damon Dash, BlakRoc Records released BlakRoc on “Black Friday” (a.k.a. Blak Friday), November 27, the day after Thanksgiving. Produced by and featuring music by The Black Keys, BlakRoc hosts a star-studded line up of MCs including Mos Def, Q-Tip, RZA, Raekwon, Pharoahe Monch, Jim Jones, NOE, Nicole Wray, and Billy Danze. Of the album, The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, who also provides vocals on several tracks, said “no samples were used on the record, it’s all live instruments and live vocals.” The Washington Post calls it "miraculous."

    The release of the album coincides with the release of the special edition 2010 BlakRoc Chevy Camaro, complete with a black finish, black metallic wheels, tinted windows, and the “BR” BlakRoc logo inlayed front and center. The BlakRoc Camaro is available for purchase via Carl Black Chevrolet in Atlanta, Georgia, and Nashville, Tennessee, and through blakroccamaro.com.
