In what was probably inevitable, Austin, Texas, bluesman Gary Clark Jr. created a mixtape, hosted by D-Nice, which features Hip–Hop and R&B artists Big K.R.I.T. (“Blak & Blu” remix, Talib Kweli and Bilal. All three tackle cuts from Clark’s 2012 album, Blak and Blu–hence the mixtape’s title–and add their signature spins to them.
Starting later this month, Clark Jr. will embark on a combination of concert and summer touring dates, hitting major venues across the country, including gigs at Milwaukee’s SummerFest (July) and Central Park’s Summerstage (September).
