****CHECK OUT THE SIX TEN MANNEQUIN CHALLENGE TO XTRA******
Six Ten is a group of three artist from Donalsonville, GA consisting of Dre Dot (Deandre Smith), Bless (Landaus Richardson), and Rab Jones (Brandon Jones). Six Ten is thrived from an address from 610 Rodgers Avenue where the group originally hung out at to kick back and chill. The group came together in 2014 marking the beginning of their journey into the music industry. Since the Six Ten has released two mix-tapes M.A.F.I.A. or Money And Family Is All along with Brothers From Another.
Each member has a story of their own to tell but each can agree were raised in a close knitted family. Dre Dot and Rab Jones grew up together from childhood and started making music for fun at the age of 16. Older member Bless took Dre Dot under his guidance to mold him into the artist that he is today. Bless admits that he spent most of his childhood in the streets first joining a rap group called New Breed. After the group broke up he started to make music with what is now Six Ten. After Bless’ 4 year prison return, he finally decided to leave the street life alone and focus on his craft. Soon enough he would come into meeting with Rab Jones who started out making beats at a young age but when he hit 22 years old, his own style and flow came into perspective. Six-Ten took off from there and beginning to take notice in various parts of South Georgia.
Looks like we may have the next FIELD MOB bringing the 229 (South GA Area Code) in the making!
