Atlanta rapper 6LACK will perform at the 2019 spring Jubilee concert, the Carolina Union Activities Board announced Friday. The concert will be on April 13.
6LACK (pronounced “Black”) recently gained recognition in 2018 with his second album, “East Atlanta Love Letter,” which got to the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums. 6LACK’s debut album, “FREE 6LACK,” was released in 2016.
CUAB counted down to the reveal with a Spotify playlist featuring artists such as Jesse McCartney and T-Pain. Entertainment Co-Chairperson T.J. Wallace said the Jubilee committee debated about artists within the budget and used an agent to decide who this year’s performer would be.
“I am personally really excited for this year’s performer because recently we’ve had artists who maybe haven’t released songs in a while, and with this artist being Grammy-nominated and also releasing an album in the past year, I feel like students will really enjoy seeing an artist they hear on the radio,” Wallace said.
