Dazed slow jams are the primary mode of Atlanta-based contemporary R&B/rap artist Ricardo Valentine, a singer-slash-MC who goes by the name 6LACK. Prior to connecting with creative agency LVRN (Love Renaissance), Valentine was signed to a label that he felt restricted his creativity. After a few years of being held back, he made significant gains -- across 2015 and 2016 -- with contributions to the Spillage Village compilation Bears Like This Too, as well as singles such as "Bless Me" and "Loyal." Once he was linked with Interscope, "Prblms" was officially released in September 2016 as his first major-label-affiliated track. That single set up the release of Free 6lack, his debut album, which arrived the following month. ~ Andy Kellman
