Black Keys' Blakroc Project Returns with Wiz Khalifa, Jay Electronica
The Akron, Ohio duo unveiled a coming attraction for the album on Tuesday (Aug. 30), which shows footage of rappers Wiz Khalifa, Jay Electronica, Curren$y, The Cool Kids and more laying down tracks in the studio. Titled "Blakroc 2," the album is simply "coming soon," with no official release date as of yet.
The first "Blakroc" installment, released in Nov. 2009 via V2, featured the likes of Ludacris, Mos Def, and RZA and Raekwon of the Wu-Tang Clan. The project was first brought together by Roc-a-Fella co-founder Damon Dash, an unexpected fan of the "Howlin' For You" rockers, and peaked at No. 110 on the Billboard 200.
"Blakroc 2" will likely arrive around the same as the Black Keys' still-untitled seventh studio album, which is awaiting a late 2011 release.
