The musician grew up in Zone 6 of the city of Atlanta which is his main influence for his art, hence the spiritual importance of the number 6 for him. 6lack’s music is often called “moody hip-hop” because of his emotionally charged ballads about love mishaps and adventures – his single “Prblms” is a fine example of that atmosphere that 6lack explores like few people. Without ever compromising his creativity in the face of commercial demands, experience taught him that the most important thing was to get a message across and to stir up true emotions.
“Free 6lack”, his debut album, released in 2016, is within that spirit and made 6lack reach his first platinum. On that year, Rolling Stone placed him on the list of artists we need to know and the people followed the advice. 2018 continued to confirm the best expectations around 6lack, with the nomination for 2 Grammys and the release of the single “Cutting Ties”, another atmospheric ballad. In the 2019 edition of MEO Sudoeste, our hearts will be opened for him. The day is 8 August at the MEO Stage.
