This weeks Take Notice artist Blakroc was this year’s best kept secret – well best kept from me. I have received heavy criticism for my BlackRoc ignorance. What can I say, it got by me, sue me. I guess I was bound to find a Take Notice artist that I would need to take notice of myself. Perhaps that is part of my intention. As I discover, so can you, maybe not everytime but don’t worry I will show you a few you never knew.
Also keep in mind there were many people who were like me that had never heard of the BlakRoc project. Take Notice is all about my chase and discovery of new creative, innovative music. A peek into my process.
BlakRoc is a shining example of the kind of music I search for. A master collaboration and a medley of creativity. The 1st single “Ain’t Nothin Like You (Hoochie Coo)” is a grossly intoxicating song. Check it out below.
