Patrick Carney (Of The Black Keys) Talks To NY Mag

The guy on the left brings us in to the life of the Black Keys a little bit and it's funny shit. I'm really starting to get into these guys. I didn't know the current album debuted at number 3 on the charts. That's fucking incredible when you think about it. What's really interesting about this whole thing is Patrick's thoughts on last year's BlakRoc project which paired the Black Keys with Dame Dash and a slew of rappers for a collaboration album. Doesn't seem like there was much team enthusiasm there.

Back to music — do you drive one of those limited-edition Blakroc Camaros that was a brand extension of Blakroc, your blues-rap collaboration with Damon Dash?
No. But that is true, and it’s embarrassing. And I had nothing to do with it.

Was this his doing?
I don’t really know … I mean … yeah. After that happened, we had to rope some shit in. Figure some shit out.

What’s a night out with the Black Keys and Damon Dash like?
I don’t know. I actually don’t hang out with Damon that much. He likes to go to Norwood or whatever fucking, like, social clubs for single rich people. I’d literally rather hang out at the T.G.I. Friday’s in New Jersey than tool around at a place that sells $40 cheeseburgers.

There have been reports that you’re making a second Blakroc album. Is that true?
We started working on one. But I don’t know. I don’t wanna do it. I think it would just get old.
