The Black Keys X RZA - The Baddest Man Alive

We found this track at Okayplayer today and felt that you should share in the joy that it brings. Two of the best to ever do it - The Black Keys and the Wu Tang mastermind The RZA - go in hard with this gentle combination of the blues rock sound and the unique flow and lyrics of the RZA.

This isn't the first time that the legends from Akron and RZA have hooked up. They connected on two tracks for the Blakroc project which placed some of the game's top MCs in the studio with Auerbach and Carney to produce 10 blues-hip-hop-rock-soul tracks that made the seemingly awkward fusion sound as natural as any Pete Rock or Dilla produced hip hop album.

They did a much better job of fusing the two sounds together here as compared to Blakroc. Blakroc seemed like a warm up and this is more of the real deal!
