Dollars & Sense - BlakRoc featuring Pharoahe Monch & RZA
How can you call something “BlakRoc” when the black folks on the project only rap and the rockers are all white?
This somewhat ham-fisted criticism of the BlakRoc project raises some interesting issues, but ultimately misses the point. Perhaps the project is called “BlakRoc” because the band providing most of the “rocking” is called The Black Keys? Maybe an album that leads off with Ol’ Dirty Bastard rapping about “Coochie” isn’t trying much to push a political agenda?
Or, maybe Dan Auerbach knows the real reason that the project shook out the way it did…
If it don’t make dollars, then it don’t make sense.
