RONALD., the first posthumous album from the late SoundCloud rapper 6 Dogs, is out now.
The 12-track record is the third full-length record in the Atlanta rapper’s discography, following his 2017 self-titled debut and 2019’s Hi-Hats & Heartaches. RONALD.—named after 6 Dogs’ first name—was originally scheduled for release in February, but was postponed after the rapper’s sudden passing. He died in late January at the age of 21.
RONALD. features contributions from two guests: Riz La Vie and Tahj Keeton. The former appears on the song “Post Malone,” which pays tribute to its namesake New Yorker.
Prior to his passing, 6 Dogs told Complex that he wanted to invoke nostalgia on the album opener “When I Was a Baby.” “I feel a lot of people like their childhood, they have good memories from their childhood, at least a few hopefully,” he said.
“And so calling the track ‘When I Was a Baby,’ I wanted to connect those points and make people feel nostalgic. That’s one of the main things that I try to make people feel because that’s one of my favorite feelings, nostalgia.”
