Pronounced “black”, alternative R&B artist 6LACK has long considered six an important number that is central to his identity. Raised in Atlanta’s Zone 6 (hence 6LACK), the musician attributes his hometown as a major influence on his stage name as well as the spiritual significance of the number six.
In 2018, 6LACK was nominated for two Grammy Awards in the Best Urban Contemporary Album category and the Best Rap/Song Performance category. The prolific artist has been on tracks with various influential musicians ranging from Syd to Kodak Black to T-Pain, Jhené Aiko, and many more. 2018 also marked the release of atmospheric slow jam “Cutting Ties”—a song for break-ups, unusual for the often pro-love advocating singer.
With a co-feature alongside Khalid and Ty Dolla $ign on “OTW” as well as critically acclaimed performances at festivals like Coachella and Governors Ball, 6lack is entering into what he calls “season two” of his career. Fans can expect even more confessional lyrics and emotional melodies in the coming months as 6lack reveals his new music.
