6LACK, born Ricardo Valdez Valentine, is a singer, rapper and songwriter best known for his single "Prblms" released in June 2016. Starting at a young age with his first ever recording experience at the age of 4, 6LACK quickly developed a passion for rap when he started taking part in battle rap competitions in middle school. In July 2011 6LACK signed a record deal with Flo Rida's International Music Group, in which time he dropped out of University and moved to Miami to pursue a music career full-time. The relationship between artist and record company was tense and after disputes over artistic license 6LACK signed instead with LoveRenaissance and Interscope Records. After being featured in the November 2016 issue of Rolling Stone and rising to prominence as one of the "10 Artists You Need to Know", his debut studio album, "Free 6LACK", peaked at number 34 in the Billboard 200. His career has since shot forward, joining The Weeknd as the opening act for his Legend of the Fall tour and releasing "OTW" with Khalid and Ty Dolla Sign. His music has been met with much critical acclaim. In 2017 he was nominated in the Best New Artist category for the Soul Train Music Awards. Following this, he was nominated both for the Best Rap/Sung Performance Category for his single "Prblms" and for the Best Contemporary Album category at the Grammy Awards in 2018. In 2018, he was also nominated as Best New R&B Artist in the iHeartRadio Music Awards and was number 12 in the Billboard Emerging Artists category. As well as his own work, 6LACK has also been a featured artist in the works of artists such as Malay, Syd, J.I.D and Sabrina Claudio. The work of 6LACK is influenced to a great extent by his own relationships and by the style of artists such as Usher, T-Pain and Sade.
