Listen: Big KRIT Hops On The Remix Of Gary Clark Jr.’s ‘Blak And Blu’


Who says blues/rock dudes can’t drop mixtapes?

Critical darling Gary Clark Jr. is establishing some #newrules with his upcoming Blak and Blu: The Mixtape, which includes production and verses from Robert Glasper, Talib Kweli, Erykah Badu and Bilal.

The singer/strummer, who’s been called the second coming of Jimi Hendrix, is hitting the road with Kings of Leon next month and hopes to refresh fans’ playlists with this new (re)mixtape (release date TBA).

While we await the full project, check out this Big K.R.I.T.-featured remix of “Blak and Blu,” debuted by SPIN.
