Ain’t Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo) – Video

     

    The Black Keys + some of hip-hop’s best names = Blakroc. And here we have the first video from the project for the track “Ain’t Nothing Like You.” Visually, it’s your standard “artists in the studio” video. There’s some shots of Mos Def and Jim Jones in the booth and plenty of relatively quick cuts to the various equipment scattered about. As you can tell, it’s nothing spectacular on the eyes. Luckily for us, the song itself is worth your time. He’s not the best emcee, but Jones holds it down on the mic. And Mos, although disappointingly stuck on hook duty, complements the Black Keys’ dusty grooves perfectly with his crooning. Here’s hoping they choose a better track for the next video, maybe something featuring Mos spitting some bars with Pharoahe Monch or Raekwon. [Blakroc]
