6LACK (LVRN/Interscope)
3/14/17

WHAT IT IS: One of music’s most innovative up and comers was signed to Interscope by the label’s John Janick and Joie Manda after the now-24-year-old generated significant buzz with the release of his current single “PRBLMS” on his own via Soundcloud, which allowed him to hone his vision, gain followers and build his brand. He then found a home with the Atlanta-based LVRN before teaming up with Janick and Co. His debut album, FREE 6LACK, peaked at #5 on U.S. rap chart and #8 on the R&B/hip-hop chart a few months ago.
