6LACK Releases 6 PC HOT EP & Teams Up With Butter For Custom Orders of 6 Hot Wings

Right after summer officially hits, 6LACK (LVRN/Interscope Records) serves up his newest EP 6 PC HOT for the world. It features production from Timbaland, Fwdslxsh, Gravez, STWO, and more as well as one guest feature from Lil Baby. Aside from the music, he has a lot of news to announce as well.

Fans can enter an augmented reality chicken shop pictured on the EP cover via Instagram to view merch, including the hot sauce, tied to the project. It can be found by searching “6pc hot” in the IG filter search menu. A link to the filter is available HERE (to be opened on a phone). Once selected, a 3D shop will launch through the camera to share pictures and videos. The AR shop was created by Jackie Carlise, a 3D motion designer who recently graduated from School of The Art institute of Chicago. She created it using the Spark AR platform.

6LACK is running a number of special activations across both Atlanta and Los Angles. 6LACK also showed love to Australia by working with Butter who delivered custom orders of 6 hot wings. The first 70 fans (35 per store) received a special t-shirt. This box contained 6 of BUTTER’s crispy fried chicken wings covered in a one off hot sauce curated by their exec chef Julian Cincotta.

In addition to local fans in different parts of the world, 6LACK is looking to help aspiring Black entrepreneurs by presenting a handful of them with 6LACKCARDS. These will be Amazon gift cards to purchase any equipment and supplies to help get their dreams off the ground.

After 6LACK collected over 25K addresses in under an hour through his 6LACKBOX “6PC Scratch and Win” folder, he sent fans a classic scratch off lottery-styled ticket which they should receive this week. It reveals the tracklist to the EP, the date of release, and the chance to be one of the select few to win physical prizes.

The 6LACKBOX has also been updated with resources like voter registration tools and a contact sheet for Black businesses. A Black author history reading list and access to social justice reform information and participating organizations will also soon be available. 6LACKBOX was announced alongside his open letter to his fans regarding the social unrest stemming from the murders of innocent Black men and women. Inside the 6LACKBOX, you’ll find snippets of unreleased music, the East Atlanta Love Letter movie that he premiered at his album release event at Starlight Drive-In Theatre in East Atlanta, never before seen photos, and more. It will also contain some content leading up to his upcoming third studio album.

For those who still have cookouts to prepare for during the warmer months or also need a new hot sauce for the collection, 6LACK will be releasing his own hot sauce brand “600 Degrees.” It’ll be the perfect addition to your own 6 pieces of wings as you listen to the new project.

6LACK Returns With Powerfully Personal “ATL Freestyle”

After a steady stream of guest features that spanned the globe including “Imported” with Jessie Reyez, “Crowded Room” with Selena Gomez, and “4AM” alongside Rema, Tion Wayne, and Manny Norté, 6LACK (LVRN/Interscope Records) releases “ATL Freestyle.”

The Fwdslxsh and Gravez-produced beat contains somber guitar chords that never seem to resolve, which feeds perfectly into the subject matter at hand. While 6LACK looks back at eating wings and listening to Gucci Mane and putting in time in the studio to make enough money and vacation with his daughter in a nice, rural area, he also leaves the song as an open ended journal entry. His future is left for only him to write.

The new song is also a love letter to his hometown of Atlanta, referencing other artists like Skooly and the venue Tabernacle. He also penned a personal letter to his fans addressing the release of this song in such a sensitive time in the country regarding police brutality. You can read his open letter HERE and listen to “ATL Freestyle” below. 

And for the Day 1’s, or Day 6’s, 6LACK is treating them to snippets of unreleased music, the East Atlanta Love Letter movie that he premiered at his album release event at Starlight Drive-In Theatre in East Atlanta, never before seen photos, and more. All of that can be found in the 6LACKBOX. It will also contain some content leading up to his upcoming third studio album. Check out the 6LACKBOX HERE.

Frontier Touring and Illusive Presents are thrilled to confirm two debut Australian performances for purveyors in futuristic R&B, THEY. Drew Love and Dante Jones will be dropping into Howler in Melbourne on Thursday 11 October and Oxford Arts Factory in Sydney on Wednesday 17 October while touring the country in support of 6LACK. Joining THEY. in Sydney and Melbourne will be 14 year old rap prodigy The Kid LAROI.

In 2017, THEY. flipped R&B on its axis and spun the genre around 360 degrees with a little grunge, electronic, and pop. As a result, their full-length debut, Nü Religion: HYENA (out now through Mind of a Genius/Warner Bros. Records) incited widespread critical praise around the world, with singles ‘U-RITE’ and ‘Dante’s Creek’ cracking 12 million streams each on Spotify.

Along the way, they’ve toured with everyone from PARTYNEXTDOOR and Jeremih to Bryson Tiller, and delivered a standout show at Coachella 2018 converting audiences to their Nü Religion in 2018 and beyond. Catch their live performance of ‘Dante’s Creek’ performed earlier this year on Jimmy Kimmel Live below to see the magic.

Confirmed to support, The Kid LAROI will be opening up the shows with his smooth as silk tracks from his freshly released EP 14 With A Dream. Hailed by some as a prodigy, this 14 year old is worth showing up early for. 

They’ve set the Northern Hemisphere on fire, now it’s our turn to be introduced to one of R&Bs most exciting acts. Act quickly to avoid disappointment!
