After a steady stream of guest fea­tures that spanned the globe includ­ing “Impor­ted” with Jessie Reyez, “Crowded Room” with Selena Gomez, and “4AM” along­side Rema, Tion Wayne, and Manny Norté, 6LACK (LVRN/Interscope Records) releases “ATL Free­style.” The Fwd­slxsh and Gravez-pro­duced beat con­tains somber gui­tar chords that nev­er seem to resolve, which feeds per­fectly into the sub­ject mat­ter at hand. While 6LACK looks back at eat­ing wings and listen­ing to Gucci Mane and put­ting in time in the stu­dio to make enough money and vaca­tion with his daugh­ter in a nice, rur­al area, he also leaves the song as an open ended journ­al entry. His future is left for only him to write. The new song is also a love let­ter to his homet­own of Atlanta, ref­er­en­cing oth­er artists like Skooly and the ven­ue Tab­er­nacle. He also penned a per­son­al let­ter to his fans address­ing the release of this song in such a sens­it­ive time in the coun­try regard­ing police brutality.

And for the Day 1’s, or Day 6’s, 6LACK is treat­ing them to snip­pets of unre­leased music, the East Atlanta Love Let­ter movie that he premiered at his album release event at Star­light Drive-In Theatre in East Atlanta, nev­er before seen pho­tos, and more. All of that can be found in the 6LACKBOX. It will also con­tain some con­tent lead­ing up to his upcom­ing third stu­dio album. Check out the 6LACKBOX HERE.

Pro­nounced “Black,” the altern­at­ive R&B and three-time GRAMMY-nom­in­ated rapper/singer/songwriter has long con­sidered the num­ber six as a cent­ral part to his iden­tity for sev­er­al reas­ons: he was raised in Zone 6 of Atlanta, it’s his life path num­ber, and also the name of his daugh­ter (Syx). In 2018, 6LACK released his sopho­more album East Atlanta Love Let­ter to crit­ic­al acclaim and peaked at #3 on the Bill­board 200 and #1 on the Top R&B Albums. Stay tuned as 6LACK is gear­ing up to release new music this summer.
