If it sounds like a collaboration between Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T. and blues rock guitarist Gary Clark Jr. would be odd or sound out of place, it's actually quite the opposite. The two both contributed to Talib Kweli's "Demonology" in late December, and now KRIT appears on the "Black and Blu" remix from Gary's upcoming mixtape, D. Nice Presents Blak and Blu: The Mixtape. (The track was originally on Gary's 2012 LP of the same name.) KRIT's no stranger to working with blues guitarists either, having already successfully collaborated with blues legend B.B. King. The two sound great together on the new remix, and make a pretty good argument that we could use more blues/rap collaborations if they're done like this. Check it out below.
Gary Clark Jr hits the road in February supporting Kings of Leon.
