I’ve been big on the Black Keys years before Dame Dash found them through his interns. You can even hear a slice of the Keys on one of my tracks from Broken Clocks EP. If you can accurately name the Black Keys track I sampled in the comment section, I’ll send you a nice lil’ jewel.
Brothers, their latest album, is my favorite of the Akron duo since Rubber Factory. When Griff hit me up a few months back asking me to hop on “Everlasting” from the homie Dre Boogie, I not only jumped on the opportunity — I hit up My Man Shafe, another Black Keys diehard, to make the cipher complete.
