After a steady stream of guest features that spanned the globe including “Imported” with Jessie Reyez, “Crowded Room” with Selena Gomez, and “4AM” alongside Rema, Tion Wayne, and Manny Norté, 6LACK releases “ATL Freestyle”. The Fwdslxsh and Gravez-produced beat contains somber guitar chords that never seem to resolve, which feeds perfectly into the subject matter at hand.
While 6LACK looks back at eating wings and listening to Gucci Mane and putting in time in the studio to make enough money and vacation with his daughter in a nice, rural area, he also leaves the song as an open ended journal entry. His future is left for only him to write. The new song is also a love letter to his hometown of Atlanta, referencing other artists like Skooly and the venue Tabernacle. He also penned a personal letter to his fans addressing the release of this song in such a sensitive time in the country regarding police brutality.
