Atlanta rapper Deante’ Hitchcock is no stranger to the work of 6LACK, having opened up for the 27-year-old superstar during some of his recent live runs. Now, following his guest appearance on Dreamville Records’ Return of the Dreamers III compilation project, Hitchcock is reaching out to 6LACK for some assistance on his latest release and single, “How TF.”

A soulful, percussive groove, “How TF’ appears to be Deante’ Hitchcock’s first major track since the arrival of his Just A Sample 2 EP. Released in March of this year, Deante’ Hitchcock’s Just a Sample 2 EP contains six new songs, including collaborations with H.E.R., Childish Major and Kilo Ali, as well as the standout single “Side N***a Anthem.” Additionally, “How TF” also appears to be the lead single for Hitchcock’s next studio project, the long-awaited, highly-anticipated BETTER.

“My first time meeting 6lack was a minute ago. It was at the Edgewood parking lot, that’s one of the music spots in Atlanta. He didn’t know me. It was like on some artist to fan type shit. That was my first time,” Deante’ Hitchcock revealed to In The Rough Style earlier this year, opening up about the origins of his relationship with his “How TF” collaborator 6LACK. “My partner … Steve Cantrell, he’s signed to the Mass Appeal label. We used to dance together, that’s my boy. He put me onto to bruh a long time ago because they used to do shit in Albany together. I knew about him and f*cked with his music and gradually over time everything just lined up the right way and ended up on tour with him. That shit crazy.”
