It’s settled: The Gray Kid wins the Hardest-Working Man of the Year award. On the heels of his hilarious PaxilBack spoof of JT’s SexyBack comes The Pilgrimage: Y’All Some Turkeys, a free (FREE!) mixtape out today that features a few new Gray Kid originals as well as the Kid takin’ on Clipse, Bjork and Jay-Z, among others, with assistance from DJ Mister Best.
Seriously. It wasn’t enough for the Kid to drop his LP … 5, 6, 7, 8 (@ iTunes), a soulful blend of hip-hop, funk and falsetto crooning, this year. No, dude must be livin’ in the studio, sweatin’ out the hits. (He blogs, too. Damn, son!)
You can download the entire mixtape (via zip) below or sample a few tracks at the Kid’s MySpace. If (nay, when) you download it, pay heed to Another Day in the Life; I’m already partial to its spaced-out keys and minimal kick-kick-snare beat.
