Gary Clark Jr. preps "Black and Blu: The Mixtape"

In celebration of his Grammy performance debut and two Grammy nominations for Best Rock Song ("Ain't Messin Round") and Best Traditional R&B Performance ("Please Come Home") -- the first time an artist has been nominated in these polar categories in the same year -- Gary Clark Jr. will be releasing a remixtape to fans comprised of unreleased music and reworkings from his Blak and Blu debut.

Hosted by D-Nice, guest features from the free mixtape include the likes of Robert Glasper, Bilal, Talib Kweli, Erykah Badu and Jill Scott amongst others.

Mississippi's Big K.R.I.T lends his MC skills to the title track in this "country rap tunes meets Texas-tinged, bluesy rock" first-look from the upcoming release.

Gary will join the Kings of Leon on tour starting in February for 17 dates that run through the first week of March.  Dates and tickets information can be found at http://www.garyclarkjr.com/tour.
