Atlanta crooner 6LACK didn’t hurt for work in the roughly two years between 2018’s East Atlanta Love Letter and the 6pc Hot EP.
He has guested on what is very likely only a fraction of the requests he received in that time, but fans would find scene-stealing verses across projects from Summer Walker, Snoh Aalegra, and the Dreamville crew, among others.
With 6pc Hot, though, he delivers six songs that are resolute to the 6LACK brand and also the current moment. Songs like “ATL Freestyle”, “Long Nights” and “Elephant in the Room” showcase the sugary slick talk and Southern charm we know, while “Outside” is a lovelorn idealist’s rumination on social distancing. Fellow Atlantan Lil Baby is the project’s sole guest, on “Know My Rights”, the pair emphasizing how hard they both work over twinkling bells and plodding 808 rumble.
