Early in 2016 the zone six (Atlanta) native dropped his tremendously successful single “PRBLMS.” The hit took the social media world by storm and made its way to the radio airwaves. Free from his previous contract, the Emancipation of 6lack has given us an album that is in a lane of its own.
6lack has gifted us with a soulful, 11-track project, a far jump from the 100 or so songs he’s been deliberating. Each song serves a certain purpose in regards to the message of the album. 6lack sat down with J Nicks, from one of Atlanta’s top radio stations, Hot 107.9. In the interview he opens up about where he found inspiration for a lot of the songs and how he has recreated this project many times.
The vibe he sets with his music is hypnotizing. 6lack creates the perfect atmosphere for reflection and deep thought. One of my favorites from the album has to be “Free.” From the time the mesmerizing beat begins to when it drops as 6lack sings “Why?” The song is an inquisition about the concept of being free.
This is just the beginning for 6lack, he is now able to be creatively free to explore all of the musical possibilities. I’m excited to see what else he has in store for us. He is the new-age Maxwell, taking the uniqueness of his voice and crafting it to melodically mesh with beats.
