It’s been two years since we heard from Atlanta-based R&B singer 6lack, but he showed consistency isn’t an issue with his latest EP 6PC Hot. The EP is inspired by the many meanings of his life number, 6. The album was released on 6.26 with 6 tracks, he was raised in Zone 6 of Atlanta and he named his daughter Syx. He also decided to name the album after his favorite spot in Atlanta, which is where he shot the cover art for the EP.
6lack’s unique sound is very mellow and what we’ve been missing in R&B. The new album creates a vibe that will have you leaving it on repeat. In an interview with Rolling Stone, 6lack stated “I have songs that talk about how I can’t wait to go outside again — songs that remind you of being out on the late night. We just tried to pinpoint specific feelings that everybody was feeling.”
Along with his EP, 6lack dropped his new hot sauce brand called 600 Degrees Original. Beginning this past Thursday through the weekend, Postmates gave Atlanta buyers the option to order a special “6lack wing” from Atlanta [black-owned] restaurant Goodfellas, which included a bottle of 600 Degrees. Next week, Amazon will introduce preloaded Amazon “6lackcards”. The gift cards are for black entrepreneurs who submit their ideas and business plans to 6lackbox. They’ll be able to use the cards for equipment and supplies on their projects.
6lack is the #2 overall most-streamed R&B artist. His first project Free 6lack is certified Platinum and East Atlanta Love Letter is now certified Gold. Dirty South Hip Hop, along with 6lack’s fans can’t wait to see what else he has in store for the future of R&B.
