ALEX BENT AND ENJAY ARE WELL ESTABLISHED SOLO ARTISTS
TOGETHER THEY ARE 6M. WHAT IS THE IDENTITY OF 6M? HOW DID YOU DECIDE TO WORK TOGETHER TO RELEASE NEW MUSIC TOGETHER?
ALEX BENT: 6M is really just whatever both Enjay and I agree on is cool haha. We found a place in the music we make where we can intersect. It doesn’t feel like either of us are compromising which is really exciting. We’ve been friends for years and have both played big parts in each other’s careers. We’ve been able to motivate and inspire each other through a lot of difficult situations and this project is really just a celebration of our friendship and the hard times we’ve bonded over.
ENJAY: Alex and I met a few years back and have been pretty close friends for a while. We made a few things together prior to 6M. Alex had featured on a song of mine and later on began to start helping me out with production.
In 2019 we made “AWFUL” and that was kinda the beginning of 6M in a way. It had that sound and that vibe but it wasn’t officially 6M yet, just an Enjay song produced by Alex. Once we started meeting up weekly at The Store it accelerated pretty quickly and we were making dope new shit almost every time we hung out.
We had both tossed around the idea of being in bands before but never pulled the trigger. Alex sent me the beat for “6M WAYS TO DIE” and originally it was just going to be something we made at The Store but we were inspired to keep making new things, so we didn’t stop. We kept coming each week with new material and that’s when we decided to be a band. The name came from that original song.
