Gary Clark Jr. - Blak And Blu: The Mixtape

Posted 2 years ago

In October of 2012, versatile recording artist Gary Clark Jr. released his major label debut, Blak and Blu. It is over the past 18 months, however, that the gifted Austin, TX native has really become a more household name.

Fresh of January's Grammy award win for "Best Traditional R&B Performance" (for the record "Please Come Home"), the Warner Bros. signee has joined forced with D-Nice to release a free mixtape version of his aforementioned inaugural body of work.

Featured on the nine-track tape is the previously-released, Booth-approved "Blak and Blu (Remix)," which features assistance from Big K.R.I.T.. Guest spots on the project belong to respected veterans Bilal and Talib Kweli, while Robert Glasper and K.R.I.T. each turn in remixed versions of original tracks from the album.
