Ep_65_The_Decade_wRap_Up.jpg

It is a w(rap) folks!! It's been a great dime piece! Here at Six in the Morning we celebrate the best of the past ten years and share with you our thoughts of both the hits and misses. We play dope music from culture and chart movers as Anderson .Paak, Odd Future, A$AP Rocky, Yeezus himself and Busta Rhymes (w/ DOOM!). What's the posse cut of the decade? Best feature? Most influential label? We share with you some of the top crews (TDE, Dreamville, and Griselda) and our artist of the decade, K.Dot himself, Kendrick Lamar. Enjoy this trip of our past ten years in music.  Here’s hoping for a great start to the next ten!!

Much love to @jonnygraphics for the dope cover art - he obviously had his pick for the decade. Check out his work @ https://www.instagram.com/jonnygraphics/
