6lack has released a Vevo Originals performance of his song “Scripture,” which comes from his latest project ‘East Atlanta Love Letter.’ The powerful rendition is done completely acapella.
In the video, 6lack moves away from the theatrics that can often crowd the music scene and opts instead for an isolated area, accompanied only by the musical sounds of nature. Birds can be heard chirping, and the wind is stirring, giving the video a rudimentary feel that highlights authentic sound. 6lack’s voice, the dominating audio, is rhythmic despite the lack of a beat. The video’s lack of musical and visual production gives the Atlanta rapper’s lyrics a new level of real and raw power that is often lost behind trap drums and auto tune in today’s music industry.
6lack’s refreshing performance leaves the audience contemplating his lyrical skills, and brings the focus of music back to a more simplified yet equally meaningful level.
