6LACK has returned. Just mere hours after the release of the tender “ATL Freestyle” paying homage to his city, the East Atlanta native quickly follows-up with the somber track’s accompanying visual on Friday afternoon (May 29).
The JMP-directed clip documents 6LACK’s trip back home, which finds him taking a private jet from starry Los Angeles back to his roots of East Atlanta, where he’s comfortably in his element and spending quality time alongside family and his daughter.
“I used to walk around that corner, right in Kirkwood Ann’s Snack Bar where the food real good/ I was livin’ like a fool, breakin’ all the rules/ Best of both worlds, ’cause a n—a went to school/ I was rappin’ like a b—h, singin’ to your girl,” he croons.
It’s been two years since 2018’s East Atlanta Love Letter, but it seems that we’ve entered a new era of 6LACK. Fans can access the 6LACKBOX, which contains the recent letter he penned to fans in regards to police brutality in America following the deaths of Ahmed Aubrey, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. There’s also snippets of unreleased music, as 6LACK preps for album No. 3.
