Future X 6lack
This would be yet another classic example of an elder Atlanta artist cosigning the new wave. Future has quickly asserted himself as one of the gatekeepers in the ATL. Coming off the highest grossing hip hop tour in history with Drake and his most successful solo project to date in DS2, Future is on top of his game like few other artists. 6lack , however is what's next in Atlanta. The former battle-rapper has developed a melodic style on his debut album Free 6lack that has been met with acclaim from fans and critics alike. While his melodic style transcends the typical boundaries of hip hop he has the bars to hang with anyone, even Future.
