Biography

6LACK in Concert 

A live 6LACK (pronounced "black") performance is an exercise in precision. On stage, the heightened sensations from the already emotionally packed music by the East Atlanta alt-R&B singer take on new life. It's like the dimly lit studios that 6LACK's syrupy music was shaped in, but this time with cosmic visuals to boot. On tracks like megahit "Prblms," the workhorse artist creates a shared experience with the audience and extracts more musicality than one might anticipate. At any point, 6LACK may be joined by live drums, synth drums, dueling synths, a guitar player, and a DJ to create the vibes from his Grammy-nominated debut album ‘FREE 6LACK,' his much-hyped sophomore release ‘East Atlanta Love Letter,' and prominent singles featuring artists like Khalid, Ty Dolla $ign, and Banks. The sultry atmospheres 6lack created early on got him tabbed to tour with The Weeknd in 2017, and now with his solo road tour, From East Atlanta With Love, 6LACK is out to prove himself as a bona fide singular force. 

6LACK Background 

Born in Maryland, but raised in East Atlanta, 6LACK (né Ricardo Valentine) is forever tied to where he came from. His name, in fact, is a reference to both the sixth month of the year (he was born in June) and East Atlanta's Zone 6, where he grew up. A numerologist of sorts, 6LACK even named his daughter Syx. He came up in the battle rap scene, going toe-to-toe with Young Thug at one point, before signing to Flo Rida's IMG/Strong Arm Records in 2011. But despite a considerable following, he only fully emerged beyond the SoundCloud rap ranks when he signed with Interscope in 2016 and released the breakthrough ‘FREE 6LACK' in 2017, which peaked at #34 on the Billboard 200. He's been on the up ever since, with his follow-up album, ‘East Atlanta Love Letter,' peaking at #3 on the U.S. Billboard chart, #2 on the U.S. R&B chart, and getting nine tracks onto the R&B Chart in 2018 alone.
