Like Bryson Tiller, 6lack had an unexpected rise to fame when his debut project “Free 6lack” debuted at number 68 on the Billboard 200 in 2016. It wasn’t until the single “Prblms” picked up steam leading the album to peak at number 34. The album ended on several album year-end charts and even earned him a Grammy nomination. 6lack found himself opening for acts like Chris Brown, performing at festivals in front of Jay-Z and Beyoncé, and even headlining his own Free 6lack Tour.
