6lack

Video: 6lack-Loyal

 

If you’ve been under a rock and haven’t jammed to any music by 6lack, stay there. When his music first dropped I was hooked. This song is my favorite, just because I empathize with the man, and know all about dishonesty and unfaithfulness. All of his songs are amazing from beginning to end. He’s only 24 but exudes so much pain and I can sit here and find myself or any situation within each. “Free 6lack” came out in November but ‘PRBLMS’ came out in June of last year. ‘Free 6lack’ comes from wanting to be free from past relationships and also his relationship with his old record company where he was stuck for about 6 years. He follows a heavily monochromatic way (amazing) and with this album, it proves to the world he’s here to make a mark.

 

Would you please dig up the strength to show you really even care
I know I said I’m psychic, but tell me what’s on your mind…

Really hope you find your relationship goals
My next gonna wonder why a nigga so cold
Cause I found out that everything that glitters ain’t gold…

I’ve been so loyal, baby
What about you?

 

That line: “Cause I found out that everything that glitters ain’t gold”
Best line ever. Not only because it is true, but because it is so close to Robert Frost’s poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay” which happens to be one of my favorite poems.

 

But anyway, do yourself the favor and listen to his album if you don’t already have it on repeat on any device you have.

Here is his soundcloud where you can stream his album.
