The Black Keys To Release Rap Album

Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney of The Black Keys are confirming rumors that the blues-rock duo will release a rap album this fall. They're calling the project Blakroc, and have posted a cool teaser video online to give listeners a taste of what they're doing.

I like what I hear. Auerbach and Carney are collaborating with some big names for the project: Mos Def, RZA, Raekwon, Ludacris, Nikki Wray, Billy Danze and more.

The self-titled Blakroc album is due out Nov. 27. Mark it on your calendar.
