Nabbing a platinum plaque for the breakout R&B hit “PRBLMS” was no easy feat. The honor of associating 6lack’s name with some of Atlanta’s favorite wings might be considered pretty close on the heels of that accolade.
The emotive singer and songwriter, whose name is pronounced Black, shared Friday that Atlanta American Deli locations will offer three wing flavors flavors with his name, including 6lack Lemon Pepper, 6lack and Mild and 6arbecue. The East Atlanta native held an unveiling at American Deli’s Hill Street location Friday.
The wing partnership makes sense, since 6lack, real name Ricardo Valdez Valentine, has shared his love for the saucy chicken parts on social media quite frequently.
His fans literally and figuratively ate up the new 6lack American Deli wings on Twitter and IRL.
When he’s not eating wings and collecting platinum plaques, 6lack’s collaborating with artists like The Weeknd, Khalid and Jhene Aiko.
His upcoming tour will visit New York and Chicago this summer. Find out more on the tour here.
