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.

Dallas Woods Returns With New Single And Video ‘If It Glitters It’s Gold’

Following a triple j premiere last week, East Kimberly-bred, Melbourne-based rapper and songwriter Dallas Woods returns with a new single and video, ‘If It Glitters It’s Gold’.

Crafted together with Jerome Farrah, a long time friend and collaborator, the track reflects on his time in the music industry and the illusion of glitz, glamour and success. The new single also arrives with the accompanying visual directed by Zachary Harris.

Speaking of the track, Dallas Woods says: “We live in a world where we’re told ‘bigger is better’ and every day is a reminder of just how much we want to outdo the person next to us. I’ve been guilty of that too. I wanted to be as big, if not bigger, than people who inspire or paved the way for my journey. But that goes against my morals. And in doing that I realised just how much energy it takes to maintain an ego.”

‘If It Glitters It’s Gold’ blends hard truths with tongue-in-cheek rhymes and clever punchlines (lyrics here) – which is the Dallas Woods way. The 26-year-old’s music uses wit and wordplay to get his messages out, weaving comments on big issues into rapid-fire rhymes. His three previous singles, ‘9 Times Out Of 10’, ‘Hoodlum’ and ‘Chapter One’ spoke about the justice system and racial stereotyping, while his Baker Boy collaboration ‘Black Magic’ stormed in with bravado, Blak pride and that classic ‘90s hip-hop-style charisma.

Since releasing his first single in 2018, Dallas has been named triple j Unearthed’s Indigenous Artist Of The Year, dubbed “powerful” and “blistering” by triple j tastemakers, and enjoyed high rotation on the station. He’s received praise and support from FBi, Triple R, The West Australian, Acclaim Mag and Junkee, among others, and performed to huge crowds at the National Indigenous Music Awards, Bluesfest, Groovin the Moo Bendigo and at the Forum Theatre in Melbourne, where he stepped up to support Sampa the Great.

In 2019, he contributed to Red Bull’s 64 Bars series delivering an incendiary three-minute rap about his hometown, which has now pulled in over 300,000 views on YouTube. He’s also been tipped to blow up this year by Red Bull and featured in their Australian hip-hop documentary series, This Is Home.

After spending much of last year touring alongside Baker Boy, Dallas is back and ready to dial everything up a notch. Stay tuned for more, coming soon.

National Indigenous Music Awards announce date


The National Indigenous Music Awards are pleased to announce that Australia’s biggest virtual celebration of Australian First Nations talent will proceed on August 8 across TV, radio and online, ensuring that Australians from Cape York to Cockle Creek to Carnarvon and everywhere in between can join in.

Host TV broadcaster NITV will join with radio and online partners to create a unique presentation live from Darwin, Larrakia Country and locations across Australia, with iconic artist performances both at home and on-country and of course the presentation of 2020’s NIMAs acknowledging success and excellence from across the community.
Viewers will be encouraged to join in on social media and will contribute to the event live, bringing the country together in an ambitious production, letting the NIMA stars shine in every community.

“The NIMAs star has shone brightly for seventeen years and far from dimming that light, COVID has emboldened us to re-imagine what the event can be,” said Creative Director Ben Graetz. “At its heart, the NIMAs is about celebrating our culture and music’s important place within it and we think that being forced to let go of the constraints of location will enable us to reach even more people and create an even bigger welcome mat for Australians to experience and celebrate First Nations music.”

Nominations for this year’s awards close this Friday with all songs and albums released before May 31 by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people eligible. All artists who have appeared in the weekly National Indigenous Music Chart will also be automatically nominated for the awards. Awards will be judged by eminent community members and music industry professionals with finalists to be announced in early July.

“I am delighted to continue the NITV tradition of broadcasting the National Indigenous Music Awards. NITV is committed to celebrating Indigenous musicians from all over Australia. Music has always been a strong part of our people’s Cultures,” said NITV Channel Manager, Tanya Denning-Orman.

Apollo Brown & Che’ Noir Announce New Album ‘As God Intended’

Buffalo & Detroit are America’s broken dream. They are once thriving cities, now known for frigid temperatures and violent crime. The cities were birthed in a different era, forged in fire, built of cold steel.

It follows that the rawest hip hop in recent memory has bled from these two regions. No two artists exemplify this hard truth more than legendary Detroit producer Apollo Brown and Buffalo’s maverick emcee Che’ Noir. The two artists came together to create a sound as natural as calm after the storm.

The soulful, head-nodding production of Apollo Brown has been a staple called on by some of the greatest to ever do it. From Ghostface Killah to Danny Brown, and from Freddie Gibbs to Chance the Rapper, Apollo Brown’s signature style has become an iconic staple of the culture.

Meanwhile, Che’ Noir has stepped onto the scene as smoothly as any double dutch veteran. Having already worked alongside Benny The Butcher, Kool G Rap, and Fred The Godson, she has emerged as one of the most extraordinary New York talents heard in years.

The pair’s new album, “As God Intended”, drifts up and Apollo Brown & Che’ Noir own city streets and offers a glimpse behind closed doors, telling the stories of gunshots, missing fathers, & playing the system.

The new album from Apollo Brown & Che’ Noir features Skyzoo, Blakk Soul, Planet Asia, Ty Farris, and Black Thought. Coming July 10th on Mello Music Group, it is exactly “As God Intended.”

DJ Bacon Releases “Beastie Floyd” Megamix Album

The follow up release to his triumphant 2018 “Back In Hell” megamix – DJ Bacon once again mixes rock and rap to deliver one of the deepest, and most comprehensive mash up projects ever attempted.

Not only is this a whole album of 7 new remixes, the album is mixed into itself to create a mega-mix album – over 20 minutes in length. Beastie Boys vocals used are laced with a sound bed of multiple Pink Floyd loops samples and sound snippets.

Although designed as a megamix experience – 5 of the individual remixes are also included in this package so the DJs can get down and play the remixes.

DJ Bacon’s most ambitious project to date, there are equal borrowings from the obscure and well-known elements of both bands. This is a remix project that, like Pink Floyd, is dark, experimental and complex at times.
