6LACK’s East Atlanta Love Letter: The Letter That Made The Difference

6LACK delivered a sophomore album in the last quarter of 2018 and it was quite a handful. It had only four features; J. Cole, Offset, Future, and Khalid. This album was sprinkled all over with hip-hop, even though it is an R&B album. The arrangement of songs was so intentional and properly done that you’d find it difficult to skip a track as that hip-hopish beat, which by the way was properly produced, along side the rendered harmonics in some of them will definitely burning that time to listen to every track on it. I’ve always heard of 6LACK, but at that point, I was having difficulty trying out new artistes as Trap and Mumble rap was the new trend back then, hence I stayed away from new acts. When the second album dropped, I was actually urged to give it a go by friends that it wasn’t trap and all that. I did and become a stan of his. He has a way with his style of singing, his delivery being flawless. Takes his time with every line and ensures to pronounce every word and syllable, you get to follow him down the entire story his trying to tell and pulls you along till the end of the song, he his gifted like that. There’s a standing myth or legend in the music world that a rapper that switches to singing then makes it or rappers/singers that can sing/rap as well, usually has more quality songs than regular R&B and Pop stars that started straight out as a singer. Consider the likes of Ed Sheeran and Jon Bellion with more words in their songs than other singers in their genres. 6LACK’s unique voice actually adds light to the entire package; you can’t really compare his style of music to another R&B Legend, dead or alive, 6LACK is 6LACK, not R. Kelly, not Usher, not Chris Brown, he’s just 6LACK. Also, it’s worthy to note that his songs do not trigger any yesteryears song; they are that unique. His confidence should also not be overlooked as he came to etch his name into the concrete walkway of R&B and gave a lot of R&B stars a run for their money with the songs on the album. The album didn’t lack bass as well, one would think it’s a trap album, only to be disappointed and then get elated again with the fact.
