Here’s a little something smooth to speed up your Friday afternoon. And you can thank Grammy-winning guitarist Gary Clark Jr., who debuted his an audible feast with the highly anticipated Blak And Blu: The Mixtape.

Clark first piqued our interest with the Big K.R.I.T.-assisted “Blak And Blu (Remix).” Now the full listeners can consume the nine-track body of work, including remixes of songs from his Blak And Blu debut. Robert Glasper, Talib Kweli, Bilal and Alice Smith make up the list of collaborators.

There’s a great chance that the musician will perform select records during a recently announced summer leg of shows.
