EDITORS’ NOTES

“It wasn’t just verses, it wasn’t just appearances,” 6LACK told Beats 1 host Zane Lowe about the collaborators on his sophomore album. “It was people stepping into my world and saying what they might not say on their track.” Part of the Atlanta native’s launch to stardom was “Ex Calling,” a biting yet conspicuously turnt-down reinterpretation of a song called “Perkys Calling” by fellow Atlantan Future. The revamp clearly was taken as flattery because Future appears on East Atlanta Love Letter’s title track, their voices layered together to sing about how their words “hit like a Draco,” the pair likening their pillow talk to the firing of a handgun. “I’m an R&B n*gga wit a hip-hop core,” 6LACK confesses on “Scripture.” It’s as accurate a definition of the artist’s genre-toeing music as you’ll find. East Atlanta Love Letter is another collection of 6LACK’s street sensibility delivered as an R&B confessional, even if the features (J. Cole and Offset among them) skew toward rap’s top spitters.

My first 6lack album

This is the first time I’ve ever listened to a 6lack album I wasn’t sure what to expect to be honest since I’ve only heard him on others tracks but after listening to this I’m definitely a fan it’s a mixture of rapping and singing and his singing though it isn’t outstanding it’s so chill and just a good vibe that it made every track enjoyable and the few times he does kinda rap it sounds natural everything feels very natural and smooth some of the tracks sound a little alike but they all have there own theme I feel that makes up for it this was a great album I don’t normally say that but it was great I’m actually listening to it again while writing this
