The Black Keys have claimed their music is more influenced by hip-hop than the blues.

The Ohio duo bizarrely argued it is “ridiculous to say we play blues music” in an interview with the Independent.

Frontman Dan Auerbach said: “When I listen to our records, I don’t hear blues music.”

Speaking about ‘Next Girl’, a song from their latest album ‘Brothers’, he added: “It’s weird because we ripped off a hip-hop song directly [on that track].”

Auerbach also claimed that the band’s live session players appreciate their musical influences.

“These guys understand where we’re coming from, they love hip-hop, they know that the groove is king. It’s hard to teach people that,” he remarked.

Last year, The Black Keys released a collaboration album under the name BLAKROC.

The self-titled record featured contributions from hip-hop artists such as Raekwon, Wu Tang Clan’s RZA, Mos Def and Ludacris.

…se volete (anche se credo non sara’ apprezzato del tutto, non so perche’ non vi vedo molto rap…) vi giro anche BLAKROC che trovo molto divertente… ovviamente CHULAHOMA o RUBBER FACTORY sono tutta un’altra storia, quest’ultimo in particolare e’ la davvero la pietra portante della loro intera discografia!
