Blakroc: Instrumental Versions

Check out these instrumental versions of some of the Blakroc tracks.

The Black Keys, of course, co-ordinated the musical production during the day while MCs added verse by night

Hearing them in this instrumental mode is how the various MCs would have been introduced to the tracks. Reckon you could have dropped as a good a rhyme over these tunes as quickly or as well as they did?

It brings the music back into focus hearing the tracks like this.

As Joel Hamilton, Blakroc co-producer, mentioned when the Blakroc album dropped all the attention would be on on the MCs and The Black Keys would be in a good position sitting back and observing it all. The rhymes are only a consequence of the spirit, adventure and live musicianship brought to the project by The Black Keys, he says:

What you’re hearing when Mos Def opens his mouth is his enthusiasm for what The Black Keys have already played.
