The Black Keys Say "BlakRoc 2" Is Not Coming Out

UPDATE: A trailer released earlier this month suggested that the LP would be released, but the band claims otherwise.

The Black Keys are teaming back up with Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Dame Dash for BlakRoc 2, the sequel to the group's 2009 release.

Though a release date is yet to be announced, a promotional video for the album has been released, revealing a lineup that includes Talib Kweli, Jay Electronica, O.C., Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa, U-God, Jim Jones, Sean Price and The Cool Kids.

Check out a trailer for the album below (via PrefixMag).

UPDATE: Despite a trailer hitting the Internet earlier this month, The Black Keys have quashed any notion that BlakRoc 2 will be released. During an interview with WZGC 92.9 FM (via Consequence of Sound), Keys' Patrick Carney denied that the album will see the light of day anytime soon.

"Blakroc 2 is not coming out soon, although somehow a trailer that was made two years ago without our permission and then recirculated without our permission,” he said. ”We have stuff recorded for it — about eight songs that I guess are done — but those were all recorded two years ago. So there are no plans for Blakroc 2 to be released as an album.”
