Don't ask me how to pronounce it because I don't know but this dude has a falsetto thing going. The song kind of reminds me of some dark, Kanye song that could be on 808s & Heartbreaks.
You're the only one i want
The only thing I need
You haunt me in my dreams
Even when I'm not asleep
“It’s a song about a girl who is being celibate because she’s respecting herself and trying to do something completely different. In the meantime, she’s still a boss and she could use a little sex. She gets a phone call from her girlfriend who says, ‘Why don’t you call Diamond Chip Dick?’ Diamond Chip Dick is a service where they come and please you and take the trash out when they leave. But it’s too good. She’s gotten Dickmatized. Paul Wall plays the gentleman from the Diamond Chip Dick company. He basically says what he does that’s got her sprung.”

So I was definitely going to take this night off for myself and just relax but then Mara came only and I had to detour my whole night. Mara is from Oakland, California and she has a great soulful voice. I just saw her "Character" video that I posted already on the blog and I immediately became a fan. She has such a soothing, capturing voice. When I found out about this mixtape I definitely had to give it a listen before I did anything else and I'm glad I did. 7 tracks and all of them are amazing. Just check them out and I promise you that she won't disappoint.

Dressed in suits at a strip club, these three dudes are in love with the strippers because of the way they move. The more I drink the more you look like wife material.
Mara Hruby is a soul singer from Oakland California. Not only does she have a wonderful voice, she's pretty, and now I have a half crush on her. What's the difference between half and full? I don't know. But make sure to check out this video because you'll only be missing out on another great singer.
"Character" is a video displaying a day in Mara Hruby's shoes to get a closer look at what makes her happy; Creativity & Music. It was filmed in The Attic Of Love and features a 1964 Porsche Classic, all centered in The Bay Area.
"It's important to know who you are as a person, all around, so you can take your creativity beyond the ordinary. This video will show a side of me that only a close few have seen. It's all about doing what you love and finding what makes you happy."
If you really rock with it then boom:

Trey Songz is getting ready to start with the Anticipation II talk and let's it be known on this song. I like that he's keeping it R&B for now. Hopefully he doesn't try to rap and fuck everything up.
Find A Place
Mary J talks about how Mr. Wrong makes her feel so good even though he breaks her heart all the time. This definitely supports the idea that women love when dudes treat them like shit but I disagree with that.
Mateo is a a R&B artist that I first heard a couple weeks ago on a song Alicia Keys. The song is called Say It's So and it's featured on the blog. After I heard the wonderful song I looked to see what other material he had. The following mixtape doesn't have many original gems on it as he sings over other beats but keep in mind this came out months ago. He has definitely matured as an artist and he definitely has 4 songs on here that are pretty good. Check it out.
Get To Know Me
Ohh N Love
Mac Miller hit a million followers and decided to release a mixtape basically for his fans and to promote his new album coming out entitled Blue Slide Park. He has a couple of songs that were already released on here but the tape is pretty good and features artists like Bun B, Talib, and production from 9th Wonder. Check it out.
I Love Life, Thank You
Just A Kid
All That Ft. Bun B
1. I Love Life, Thank You (prod. Brandun Deshay)

So clearly I do not watch X Factor and just wait for gems to come out on youtube. This 14 year old rapper is pretty good. If you know that song "Stop Looking At My Mom" that I may have posted on this blog then this is the same young man. Check it out because dude is very confident and has a bright future ahead of him.

As the beginning of the video states:
With just a Dollar And A Dream, this video was shot in 2008 before I even had a record deal. 3 years later, watching it still gives me the same emotions. This is dedicated to the Lost Ones. -Jermaine Cole.
I stayed away from really accepting this dude as a R&B artist simply because he was rapping on everything at first. Or that's what it felt like to me. But he has about two mixtapes that I should be listening to in the upcoming days so look out for more material form him.

50 Cent has been trying all different ways to promote his energy drink to the masses and I'm not mad at him. He's trying to feed hungry kids so watch the funny video then like the link on facebook.
I don't even remember posting something that had Flo Rida in it but this man is sporting a baldy right now. This sounds like something that will go on in a party and I won't know it because I didn't give it a chance. Just enjoy it.
FinaL OutlaW is an emcee on the uprise hailing from the streets of New York. He recently released his latest project, Invado, which features “I’m An Outlaw”. The track has an appearance from SYOR’s Maza, Kid.Digit-Ø, along with production from 07017 (SoundwaVve)
I'm An Outlaw
Lyriciss with a little assistance from Ray J unleashes a new song, "Stop Scheming," aimed at all the posers of the world.
With Phil The Thrill's album Barely Awake being released on October 25th, he choose to drop off the first official track from the project entitled "Make You Famous" that includes an infectious sample from Wiz Khalifa.
Make You Famous

Lou Williams the basketball player has teamed up with 2 Chainz and Meek Mill to give us a nice track for the speakers. I don't know if Lou has always been a rapper but he holds his own right here. Props to HHU
From the vaults of the underground comes a never before heard tale from Chicago's Greatest Street Poet, Common. Common's graphic story comes to life with the assist from visual artist and producer dsteele.
"He started coming up with all these gags and describing the characters living in this sort of parallel world, and we were sold. He wasn't sure if we'd be down to play the leads, but our take on this was, if we're going to do this, we need to go all the way. So we played the dickheads, essentially."
I've been a fan of Duck Sauce, which consist of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden, since I heard "Anyway" and you've probably heard their famous track, "Barbara Streisand." Anyways, this video is out of this world but very unique and weird. Gotta love it.
WHEW! If you have not heard of Bridget Kelly I'm sure you have seen my future wife sub in for Alicia Keys to sing Empire State of Mind while on tour with Jay Z. Anyways, this mixtape features 8 tracks and each one tells its own story of how she's like every girl out there in the world. We have girls that are thinking about their boos, girls not wanting the guys to fuck up, girls killing their cheating boyfriend (as well as the other girl) and more. I listened to this on my train ride home today and was intrigued by her story telling and ability to be an aggressive singer. Check out my favorite three and then make your decision.
In The Morning
A couple weeks ago Machine Gun Kelly, currently signed to Bad Boy, released a mixtape that is simple and straight to the point. He makes aggressive and fun music that is tailored for those that are ready to go crazy with him. Clearly we get the point since his first song is entitled STFU. No DJ tags and a mixtape that includes appearances from Waka Flocka, Puff Daddy, and Mike Posner. Check out my favorite tracks and then you decide if you want to download the whole project.
Warning Shot Ft. Livvi Franc
I'm sure all of you are aware of the lyrical beef that these two artists have been apart of. Charlamagne really says something that sparked me to even post this up. He compared Lil Wayne to an AND 1 basketball player and when you look at it from that perspective you can finally understand why Wayne cannot even fuck with Jay Z. Peace
So my man Quinn just put me on to this artist. That up there is pronounced as Subtract so don't worry if you did not get that. He's a producer/musician based out in London that excels in this electronic dubstep genre. Make sure you check this out and the project entitled the same name. Enjoy.

So one day I was thinking about death and the possibility of not being able to deliver a message to my unborn child. Whether I was expecting a child or not I at least wanted to leave something for those spoiled brats. Ultimately the message will be the same if it's a little girl or little boy but I will make sure to point out some differences. Okay let's try this:
Dear Little iGoon,
First I want you to know a little about Daddy iGoon. I don't like to talk about myself so this is pretty hard for me (that's what she said) My purpose in this world is to make people laugh and smile. I tried to use many means of communication to make people laugh whether it was sharing funny ideas, funny news, using media, using social networks, etc. I just feel that if I go a day without making one person smile I'm not doing the world justice. Okay that's enough about me. Eventually you will understand the kind of person I was by the advice I give you.
Whatever you do just make sure you're always excelling at school. From the beginning of my school experience I always took it seriously. That was in part due to my parents who expected nothing but A's as I was coasting through the Public School system until I went away to a private boarding school. I don't care what school you go to but I do ask that you do better than me. When I used to come home with 96's and 98's, my mother would always say "Good job, but where are the rest of the points?" Although I thought that was the most evil thing she could say after I stunted on that test, she was right. I never got presents or gifts because I did well in school. That was shit that I was supposed to do. (I'm sorry but I curse a lot and I'm sure if your first word is a profanity I'll take the blame) But yeah, excel in everything and anything that you do. Whether it's math, english, reading, science, theater, sports, arts, drawing, just go harder than they go.
I don't know if Facebook is still around but make sure your friends are cool people. You might have many different best friends because of different time periods in your life so keep them close and support them. You can be a good friend by being honest, being supportive, being loving, and just looking out for them. It's a real friendship if all those qualities are reciprocated. If you find yourself being the only one reaching out then it may be a little one sided. Or if you find yourself lacking in any of those qualities, purposefully, then you might not consider them a friend. Whatever the case, being a good friend takes some time since it's a relationship that you have to build but those are the people whom you want to do it with. I've fought with my friends, cried with my friends, and shared many other things so I hope you surround yourself with great people you can lean on.
Family members can be a pain in the ass sometimes but it's only because they care about you more than you think. You won't know this until shit hits the fan and you realize that family is the everlasting thing that keeps your life together. Lean on your family anytime. That's what they're there for and make sure you can be reached as well.
Whether you like girls or guys or aliens I'll support you from wherever I am. You will fall in love. You will fall out of love. You will get your heart broken, you will break other people's hearts. The person you may want to marry when you're in high school won't be the same person you want to marry when you're done with college or even better yet, while in college. I'm 24 while I wrote this and that woman that I've wanted to marry has changed every fucking year. I've done some heart breaking but definitely have had my heart broken and chewed on. That's why I say at this time in my life, have fun make smart decisions and just live life. Don't be as crazy as daddy iGoon but I want you to enjoy the men and women you encounter.
[Little iGoonette]: All dudes want to get their dick wet so watch the fuck out.
I think that's it for now. I don't want to hold you up but just know that Daddy iGoon loves you very much no matter what you turn out to be and whatever you decide to do with your life.
