Ricardo Valentine, better known by his stage name "6LACK" (pronounced as "black") is an Atlanta-based contemporary R&B/rap singer-slash-MC. When the 24-year-old released "PRBLMS" on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show last May, the song became an instant hit, racking up thousands of streams on SoundCloud. He left Valdosta State University and signed a record deal in 2011 with a label he felt restricted his creativity. “They wanted me to just be a hit song and I wanted to show them I was more than that,” he wrote in an open letter on his website. He would eventually leave the label and link up with LVRN (LoveRenaissance). 6LACK released his debut project, FREE 6LACK, last November, which landed him a spot in Rolling Stones' list of "10 New Artists You Need to Know."
