6LACK Impresses With Anti-Romantic R&B / Hip-Hop Single “Cutting Ties”


Since dropping his dark debut album FREE 6LACK in November 2016, Atlanta singer and rapper 6LACK has effortlessly risen through the hip-hop/R&B ranks. The powerful young artist kept his stride throughout 2017 with bonus tracks, covers and more, and today he’s back with a simultaneously smooth yet dark new single “Cutting Ties.”

It’s no coincidence that “Cutting Ties” dropped on February 14, and it’s safe to say this track isn’t for valentine’s lovers. Alternating between silky smooth melodic rapping on the verses and sleek singing on the bridge/chorus, 6LACK once again shows his vocal range while performing over a moody, trap-inspired beat. Check out “Cutting Ties” below and enjoy!

6LACK & Timbaland Link Up On New Hip-Hop Collab "Grab The Wheel"

6LACK Timbaland

6LACK is a rapper who had a quick rise and has been a favorite of ours ever since. He just recently shared three new tracks alongside Banks and T-Pain, and now he's linked up with legendary hip-hop producer Timbaland for a new collaboration "Grab The Wheel."

After years of hits with artists like Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliot, Drake and more Timbaland has been more active recently than he has in years. Here Timbaland makes uses of a hard-hitting percussion and a trippy distorted sample. 6LACK once again shows his strength of melodic rapping and singing. This new collaboration comes alongside a music video showing neon imagery in a roller rink. Enjoy!

Atlanta Rapper / Singer 6LACK Delivers 3 Impressive New Tracks Featuring BANKS And T-Pain

Atlanta rapper / singer 6LACK amazed us last year with his impressive debut album, and today he has updated Free 6LACK with three brand-new tracks to celebrate its one-year anniversary. The new bonus songs appear at the end of the album, with features from female vocalist Banks and the legendary T-Pain.

The first of the three tracks, "Glock Six" fits perfectly with the mood set by the album with its dark melodies and sparse hip-hop instrumentation. He slows it down for the second one, "In Between" featuring Banks, choosing to sing the chorus together and alternating verses with her. The voices of the two work well together, and Banks especially sounds great with the layered auto-tuned vocals. We can only imagine how excited 6LACK was to work with the man who brought auto-tune into the mainstream on "One Way" featuring T-Pain, and it shows through the quality songwriting. He holds his own for the first half of the song with his impressive lyrics and vocals, and then T-Pain comes in and further cements his legendary status with his incredible singing and attention to detail.

6LACK recently announced that he will be taking a hiatus from touring to focus on being a father to his daughter that was born this year, and that he is working on new music. We can't wait to hear that, but until then we'll be revisiting the excellent Free 6LACK with these new songs. Enjoy!
