Well, not only did I use that phrase to title this post, it happens to be the question I will answer for you. By way of Southpark, in the heart of Houston, Texas; Damien Duckworth, is an artist you’ll want to listen out for. With production credits from, Houston’s own platinum producer Davion Botts “DBottz” Duck is on his way to being a household name in no time. His baritone voice is so rich it oozes over the beats like honey. He may be new to the music scene, but there is definitely wisdom stemming from past experiences in each verse.
What I like about Duck, is that he is versatile this is a crucial chracteristic in the rap game. Lyricists, have to be able to deliver a message, to different walks of life and be related to. Ducks first mix tape entitled Unstable Mind Frame is slated for release this season.
Duck, is coming into the game strong, he has accomplished quite a bit already. The single, Other Side, was first place winner at Coast 2 Coast’s SXSW rap contest. Featured on 50 cent’s website http://www.thisis50.com. He was also featured on Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes’ Top 50 Indie Artist Mixtape Vol.102! Take a listen to the track below “Otherside!!”
Glorious crooner Algebra Blessett has dropped some heat!!!!
“I Ain’t No Joke” is the first track off Algebra’s forthcoming mixtape “Dessert Before Dinner,” and by the looks of things she plans on turning the music volume all the way up.
Prior to the new release, Algebra achieved a #1 song with her wedding duet “4Evermore” with Anthony David in 2011. I love her music, her tone of voice, she is just so versatile. Her lyrics flow like liquid over the beats provided.
I Ain’t No Joke
And a bonus my favorite song by her for various reasons ♥

Verse Simmonds has been receiving a lot of play time in the Impala lol. Love love love this mixtape. This is that after your bubble bath music!! I’m posting a few songs below and no I’m not going to post Boo Thang sorry 😦 ♥ (Quick post on my break no time to expound on his talent) it speaks for its self anyhow!!!
It doesn’t happen often, but occasionally a few young artists emerge with talent that’s far beyond their years. Anais, makes you wonder, how on Earth we let so many wack artists find success with mediocrity?? Anais Aida, is among the exceptional few!! Just listen to her version of Rhianna’s “Skin” or her original song “Love Can Burn” she is just breath taking!
The word such is used in two ways: 1) to emphasize a quality “he has such a good heart” 2) to show a similarity “such as”. SuCh, a hybrid of Su Charles her birth name, is an excellent songtress. SuCh is Haitian-American and a Boston born, New York raised, California educated power house. She has been on American Idol and performed so many places I could never list them all. She has met and performed with Patrice Rushen, Peter Cincotti, Kurt Elling, Dave Koz. That’s quite an impressive resume if you ask me. (Lord knows I adore Patrice Rushen)
