US rap prodigy 6LACK will be performing two headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne this October in his first foray down under. The shows come off the back of the announcement that 6LACK will be supporting global hip-hop icons Migos on their hugely-anticipated debut Australian and New Zealand tour.

Hailing from the current epicentre of US hip-hop music, Atlanta, 6LACK (pronounced ‘black’) has risen to prominence in the past 12 months following the release of his hugely acclaimed debut album Free 6LACK. The LP features his breakout hits ‘PRBLMS’ (certified platinum) and ‘Ex Calling’ which have amassed over 150 million plays on Spotify and YouTube between them. In June, 6LACK released a new stand-alone single ‘That Far’ (8 million Spotify streams) which hints at things to come from the enigmatic songwriter.
