Gucci Mane and 6lack Are Working on Music Together
6LACK is one of the biggest stars coming out of Atlanta, so it was only right that he linked with Gucci Mane at some point or another. Recently, the "My Ex Calling" performer did jus that, and he posted a picture of himself and Guwop in the studio for proof. He captioned the photo "bear x wop."
In the photo, we can see 6LACK and Gucci looking mighty contemplative as they hover close to a mixing board. In another Instagram post, production duo Nard and B uploaded a picture of Guwop and 6LACK looking like they're having an extended brainstorming session. We can only imagine the sort of gold these two Zone 6 thoroughbreds produced that day. We can't wait to hear it.
6LACK's music features a unique combination of hip-hop and R&B, so it's fitting that he's about to go on tour with The Weeknd. Last November, XXL caught up with the "PRBLMS" crooner to discuss his rise to stardom. At the time, he said he rapped for a good while before he ever learned he could actually sing. His musical influences are primarily R&B.
"[I realized I could sing] very recently, maybe like 2011," he explained at the time."I started to think, ‘Maybe I can hold a note’ and then I got more into it because I thought vocals were interesting. As I kid I would sing in secrecy but I never thought nothing of it. As I started working on music I think I tiptoed into it."
These days, 6LACK has gone from singing in private to crooning with Jhene Aiko. You can hear their collaboration, titled "First Fuck," here.
