Brilliant Breeze's "The Genesis" review

This is easily the best mixtape I have heard today. With his smooth tranquil vibe and metaphorical suave lyrics, Brilliant Breeze is sure to please. This is a 12 tracks masterpiece. This kind of remind me of Young Roddy from Jetlife. He's only 17 so there he has alot of upside with Track 8- "Palm Trees".

I mean damn you make the whole DMV proud with this one. I have nothing negative to say except that I would have liked to hear a lil bit more of variety in your sound. One or two turned up tracks would have showed that you can do more and just makes you more valuable. If that's not your style then don't worry about it and just keep doing what you doing and good thing are bound to happen. 

Breeze emailed me and asked me for a review. As soon as I read it I got on my job and began to write my review. Thank you for this because I am 100% frank with my reviews and sometimes my honesty can hurt an artist feelings. That intern hurts me because I don't want to be mean but the truth can really burn and I don't want to do that to someone who ask me for a review. I didn't have to be mean with this one because it is just stunning. 

You can download this mixtape at the link below. Also I provide this service free to anyone who ask but we all need a lil green in our pockets. I collect $1 donations through paypal and it would be greatly appreciated if you could help my cause. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Don Benjamin's "High Fashon" review

I listened to this mixtape earlier this morning and I wasn't going to do a review at first because I don't have many positive things to say, but then I saw you have reached 100 downloads and that's publicity for me so fuk it. It's not bad and sounds clear its just there is nothing unique that makes me enjoy the music. Track 2- "High Fashion" he just repeats the title of the mixtape for 3 minuets straight.

In your description you say that this is your third solo mixtape and searched your name and this one is the only one I could find. If this was the first one I would be more understanding because it takes time to gel and find your sound but its pretty generic to me. I listen to about 5 tapes a day and if there isn't something that grabs my attention from the beginning you loose me.

On a positive note it is well recorded. Its sounds professional engineered and the beats are pretty nice. There is only 10 tracks with an intro and outro so really just 8 so it goes by quick and that's why I listened to it in the first place. My suggestion is just to keep going and looking for that sound that makes you better than the next artist.

Marquis' "Above Average" review

CHOCOLATE CITY STAND UP!!! This was a pure pleasure to listen to. He has all the intangibles of a good artist, good beats, well mannered lyrics, and a commendable swag. I was uneasy at first listening because of all the tracks but I didn't mind because it has a nice vibe. Track 17- "So Bad" is the gem of this one.

If I were to make one suggestion it would be to have more beats like the two bonus tracks at the end on your next mixtapes. You sampled Bell Biv Devoe's "Poison" and Usher's "Nice And Slow". Those two tracks is what really made this mixtape glow. More people identify with old hits and I love the way they were remixed.

I also liked how you had a nice variety of raw rap and r&b. Most artist are one tier and don't know how to turn off their gangsta and turn up the love or vice verse, but you do it very nicely. It keeps the flow of the mixtape alive, so stick with it and you are sure to thrive.

Victory's "No Sleep" review

Thank you for asking me to review your mixtape. First thing I notices was that you have over 18k downloads. Very Nice! Once I started listening I realized why you have reach that amount of success. This mixtape is a solid showcase of your skills with the captivating beats and truthful lyrics. Track 8- "Motivated", is what I like to listen to so I stay driven to succeed at my blog. 

I did notice that you had alot of tracks and I usually skip a mixtape with more than 15 tracks. Since you requested a review I have no choice but to listen to everything but then I realized it wasn't long because there is 3 skits and the track times are bearable. This attracts more listeners. 

Another thing, this mixtape came out back in January. Why is this the only one since then? This business is fast paced and if you are serious you should be coming out with at least one mixtape a month to keep your name relevant. Even on Skit 2, the sample talks about if you want to be sucessful what you have to do. 

 I was sitting here listening with my brother and he says you kinda sound like Mac Miller. IDK because I don't fuk with Miller, but I know he receives alot of high praise.  I do like how your are spittin real rhymes. You not on here talking about dealing crack or other stupid nigga shit. You keep it down to earth and that's a plus to attract a fan base. Really it appears you already have an established fan base but just keep grinding and feeding us more and growing your name.

Stalley's "Honest Cowboy" review

Yet again here is another mixtape I listened before I started my blog but I can't stop playing. Stalley has been doing his thang for a long time and it's nice that he is starting to really shine. What really makes him special is his beat selection with the smooth harmonic melody and top name features. Track 2- "Swangin" ft Scarface and Joi Tiffany, is the premiere piece of this tape but its good from start to end.

I first heard Stalley on Curren$y's "Adress" on the video that played on MTV Jams. Originating from Ohio, he really carries a Houston vibe with the great sound of Scarface. I can't wait till I find out he is doing a show in Chicago, because I will be one of the first ones to get tickets.

Bobby Capri's "Instant Gratification" review

This right here is something special. This is another mixtape I listened to before I started my blog but I find myself enjoying it on a daily biases so I had to review it. There is only 6 tracks but not one of them is close to being whack. Track 5- Lindsey Lohan is my personal favorite.

Really I could write a review on every single track. This is pure gold. Good music is something that can't be denied and anyone who listens to this will agree with me that this is fly. Somebody earlier called me a dickryder for doing what I do and I don't care because this is just awesome.

What I really like is that he breaks the mold of white rappers with no rythem or soul in thier music. I only expect great things from Bobby Capri because as long as he keeps putting out magic like this he is paving the way, all he gotta is walk it.

G3EK Lavar's "G3EK" review

You really snapped because I liked your sound off the bat. Not many artist embrace their weird side that we all have but are scared to show. You do it very nicely. These beats is what I look. Many artist say they have a unique sound but you truly do stand out the crowd. Track 3- "G33k'N" is a work that should really make you proud.

Please understand I consider myself the biggest Basedgod fan. Knowing how to enjoy weird music is a acquired taste that my musical pallet enjoys. Really the music itself is not that weird its just your lyrics and even those are exquisite because it's not like your just on a track rapping, you are telling a story and its enjoyable.

The beats is what separates your individual sound because they are simple but tasteful. You use the piano sound to your advantage. Also I noticed at the last track "Fantasy Serum" you showed off your singing skill without using any auto tunes. You have a very nice voice and I would have liked to hear that some more but this still goes. Please come out with more music.

L.P.'s "The Runway" review

VIRGINIA STAND UP!!! He comes straight out of Danville, but has the rap swag of a New Yorker so you know his lyrics are on point. Throw then 4's up  for the 434 because this is a pure delicate hard worked piece. Track 4- "We Here" shows this boy got skillz on the bars. 

I like that he said he can freestyle so I went to your twitter and herd your "Some Type Of Way" freestyle and he is a man of his word. Rep yo city strong and keep coming out with more great works like this one and good things are bound to happen.

One small but very important component missing is I read that it took you 2 years to complete this. I know you have a son to take care of but if you are really serous about making it big, I believe any upcoming artist should release at least one mixtape a month so your name stays relevant. You know on the track you be snappin so get it crackin.

whiZzle's "Flight From Goldcoast" review

Nice to have a fresh new artist who has the complete package containing real rhymes and simple but very nice beats. It's very important for new artist to not just be good but also keep it real. I believe I heard him say he was from the motherland of Africa and your beats have that kind of vibe to it. Track 9- "Regardless" is the spotlight of this tape.

Thank you so much for repping your African roots proudly. Yesterday I heard a mixtape from D'African and he just straight up LIED and said he had features from Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa and Kendrick Lamar, but all he did was change up his voice and it sounded so tacky. I kinda grew a stereotype that all people from the homeland did bogus shit like that but you squashed that real quick with your very nice loop beats and solid rhymes.

Please don't take offense to me calling your beats simple sounding. I listen to alot of mixtapes and so many artist try too damn hard and it ends up sounding pretty bad, but that is not the case with you because you kept it nice from beginning to end. With only 12 tracks this mixtape is a sure win.

Frank's "Great Frank's Place" review pt. 3

Hello and thank you all for visiting my blog. I have been receiving alot of positive feedback and I appreciate all your comments weather it be negative or positive. Everything said I take as constructive criticism. If anybody has any suggestions for me or want me to review your mixtape I will be more than happy to do it for you. Just send me an email at greatfrank87@gmail.com but please understand that I am only one man and it may take some time until I get to yours.

I would like to inform everybody that I now have a twitter page and you can follow me @greatfrank87. I am sorry I have an egg for a avatar. I am a magician with my words instead of any kind of visual art. Different people are blessed with different talents and if there are any artist out there that want's to draw something for me please do it and send it to my email and I will consider if it fits.

I have been reading some of my latest post and I have realized that I have veered away from my original plans of supporting small name artist. Also I have realized that I have been more negative and mean with my reviews. I am sorry if you are offended by my opinion but please understand nothing I say is for any kind of WOW factor. I simply state the truth as I hear it. I will try to be more gentle with my wording in the future.

Anther thing I have noticed is I am much harder on the big name artist. Please understand the only reason I am tougher on an artist who is signed to a record label or has an established name in the industry is because you have cracked the code on how to turn your rhymes into dimes. You are held at a higher standard because your not a novice. Please take it as constructive criticism or ignore me and keep making money.

With that said I would also like to point out I received my first donation. I will not say the persons name but I promise you that I thank you to the utmost. I wish I didn't have to beg ya'll for charity but until I grow my blog to a certain amount of daily readers I cannot receive any kind of advertisement. I do not have a real job so this is my only source of income. I do appreciate your donations and please tell all your peoples about this and that helps me just as well.

I am growing everyday and working as hard as I can to fulfill all of your request. I do this for free because I appreciate all the artist who are willing to post their hard worked art on the internet for all to listen. Many people out there do not know how to show their appreciation but I do it this way so you can have some extra coverage. The only reason I do the big name artist is because that is what attracts readers so I have to if I want to be successful.

I will continue to do my best and keep my standards. I know that I have a potty mouth and some see that as not being professional but sometimes using profanity is the best way to properly describe something. Plus this is a Hip Hop review blog so profanity is part of the community. Niggs don't give a fuck. Sorry but I do thank you for reading and thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.


The Underachievers' "The Lords Of The Flatbush" review

A nice mixtape consisting of Ak and Issa Dash. My first time listening so I didn't have any high exceptions until I saw that their last mixtape released earlier this year had over 175k downloads. It appears to me that their message is simple, smoke good and live good. Track 3- "Cold Case" goes ham. 

With only 8 tracks some would say they lived up to their group name but I prefer shorter mixtapes. Makes my job easier. It makes much more sense to have shorter tapes and more releases that way your name brand grows. I never heard of them but I can tell why they have so many fans because they go hard. Numbers don't lie. 

I'm a Chiraq cat but I must admit that right now what's hot is New York rap. Ever since I have started my blog I have been exposed to alot of new artist that have a strong fanbase but they don't play them on the radio here in Chicago so I had no clue they existed. This group is due to do big things because they have the skill set and great turned up beats to match. I will be on the lookout for more.

Hell Rell's "The Meyer Lansky Project"

I was really hoping to give this mixtape a good review because I was the biggest Dipset fan back in the day. Unfortunately I am going to have to agree with all the comments that this is pretty bad. I remember Hell Rell being much more lyrical than this with some of the best punchlines. Now he is just another rapper who's time has passed just like the rest of the Diplomats. Track 7- "Never Been Like That" ft Lambo, the hook sound just like Young Dro's "Nope" ft T.I. off the "Day Two" mixtape.

Didn't he serve time in prison for drug charges? Why is he on here talking about moving bricks? He is much older now and I tell artist all the time to only spit real talk. When you only spit real talk it does many things to validate your rhymes. When you don't, you appear fake and you might as well be speaking Japanese because it makes no sense.

Also what is up with the title of this? I had no clue who Meyer Lansky was so I googled him and found out he is a Russian born Jewish mobster who had and exquisite gambling operation stretching from New York to Miami. Why do so many artist have these nice titles but the theme of the mixtape has nothing at all to do with title? Why not call it "Dookie Land" because that is where your ears are going when you listen to this.

I know I sound mean but i expected MUCH better than this from Hell Rell and everyone is saying that this is just disappointing because that is the perfect description of this mixtape.

Caskey's "The Transient Classics" review

It may be just me listening to about 5 mixtapes a day or the fact that he is signed to YMCMB but I just did not care for this.The mixtape is good but the beats are average at best and he sounds just like everybody else with good lyrics. Track 6- "Down And Out" is a track I listened to.

Please understand I am somewhat biased because I started this blog to help small name artist who are trying to get signed. I am forced to do these big names because nobody wants to read about nonames. When it comes to a release from artist signed to big name record labels I expect them to raise the bar and show why they deserved to be signed and Caskey did not do that for me, but I am not the one signing his checks so my opinion doesn't matter.

I skimmed through this because be has no features from any of his coworkers and that really would helps the sound of this. He has no distinctive sound that separates him from the crowd. He isn't talking about anything just using his rhyming talent. On a positive note, the mixtape is well done and because he is signed to YMCMB he doesn't have to be spectacular because the radio will play his stuff on repeat.

Chrishan's "Man Of The Year 3" review

I do have to say this this did start kinda slow to me at the beginning because you wasn't talking about anything but I stuck with it because yo beats are raw as hell and this was engineered to perfection. As I continued to listen I realized that you are much more talented on R&B tracks. As the mixtape plays it gets better and better with pieces like Track 12- "Back To You"

Maybe it's just me or do I see more and more artist trying to bring the music back to hip hop instead of just rapping. This is a something great to play if your alone with your sweetie pie trying to eat some pie. The whole feel of this kinda remind me of a Music Soulchild album how you can groove to every track.  Keep going Chrishan and bring back that 90's style of love songs. A great era for music.

Willie The Kid's "Aquamarine" review

The title to this mixtape really fits because all these beat have a nice fluid feel to them. Kinda reminds me of some Oceangang. I read some of the comments and some said that you really can't rap. Please understand people his lyrics are more poetic based with messages instead of your regular two line rhymes. Really nice style that takes alot of work. Track 9- "The Pleasantries" is straight crack on a track.

 I have never had the pleasure of listening to him but please believe I will be on the lookout. I went on Wikipedia and Willie The Kid is an established name in the rap game. Origination from Grand Rapids, Michigan he makes the Midwest proud. He has worked with plenty of big names and made features on many different top works.

I love this sound because of how smooth. Nice way to start out the day. It's funny  I have never listened to him before because I always see his name on other peoples stuff. He now has a new follower and I hope he does a show in the Chicago area soon so I can support him.

Hi's "The Introduction: Hithaeater" review

You got bars with a raw ass flow. I always see you plugging your mixtape on the comments and I finally got around to listening. I'm always willing to support a fellow grinder. Thank you for not being whack or copycat like so many that rap. Great original beats and selection of instrumental. A must listen for anyone who calls themselves a true rap fan. Track 8- "Food For Thought" really shows what you are capable of.

Sorry it took so long for me to get around to listening. I'm sure you understand because when you work hard and focused on a goal your time starts to become extremely valuable. Keep plugging your tape and you will start to see success and more downloads. The hardest part for any new artist is to get people to simply listen to your music. Trust me I know because I fighting the same battle getting readers for my blog.

I do have to point out that I noticed another mixtape on your page but it was made last year. I believe that any new artist that is serious about their craft should release one mixtape a month. That's the minimum really you should do one a week if you wan't real success. I listen to anywhere from 3-5 mixtapes a day and I know when I have listened to someone who has promise and you do but you gotta keep grinding. I'll be on the lookout.

You can download this mixtape at the link below. Also I do this for free like PBS and just like any free service we nee the support of others to survive so a one dollar donation would really strecth a long way in my world. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Jerry's "Reflections 2" review

This is another mixtape that I listened to before I started my blog. I couldn't forget about Jerry because I instantly put this on my phone and I play it on a regular. Jerry is a lyrical master and carries a nice smooth vibe for a good car ride. Track 5- "Right Now" is a great display of his skills.

It's artist like this that keeps me motivated to keep going and growing my blog. He deserves to be signed off of pure talent. From start to end I was stuck in my seat as I took in his premiere lyrics and gently tone beats. It has a real jazz feel to it plus dude can spit.

Young Money Yawn's "Street Gospel" review

At first listening of course I have to point out the similarities towards 2 Chainz possibly the hottest rapper on the scene right now. Nothing wrong with striving to sound like a great but at the same time having your own sound and to me its like 2 Chianz on Soulja Boy like beats. Nice mixture. Track 4 "Waitress" goes stupid ham. 

I also don't like to call out artist often but one verse on Track 12- "Making The Man" you said you been shot 6 times. It could be true but if its not then spit something you can't back up. Rappers who don't spit real talk instantly loose credibility and nobody wants to listen to them. 

Why so many radio beats at the end? I like the instrumentals but imagine listening to 5 mixtapes a day and guess how many times I hear Versace redone. It is ok because you did rebound with two nice tracks at the end. People need to be careful with Molly because I have seen some people spazz out on that stuff and its not nice.

Torch's "No AC Vol 2" review

Yet again another big name artist I have never had the pleasure of hearing. At first when I was listening I thought this was another small name cat that stole the Maybach Music soundbite but he is a legit MMG artist with the last No AC having over 250k downloads. No Rick Ross for Rockie Fresh features but he didn't even need him because this was pretty damn decent with a consistent flow with reason. Track 7- Malaria ft Fred da Godson & Styles P, is real trippy.

I like it when I listen to a artist I have never heard of but then I do my research and see that it is me who has been missing out. Numbers don't lie and talent never dies. Torch spit dat hot fire. He carries that New York style of rap with great punchlines and connecting verses. Promise I will fuks with Torch for now on.

Al-Fatir's "Man From The Sky" review

Now this is what I am talking about. The entire feel of this mixtape had a smooth vibe that brings you down to earth with some pretty descent lyrics. This is a studio project so relly expect nothing less than flawless. Track 1- "Skyfall" is a nice use of that Instrumental. I remember first hearing it on a Spitta track.

If Al-Fatir keeps putting out top knotch pieces like this the sky is the limit for this man. I do have to say it would have been nice if there was a more turned up track but that's not yo style and I understand. Even still this was a great listen .

All I can say is keep going because your only gonna get better. Your lyrical content was somewhat irrelevant and redundant with no message but there was still great delivery with the melodious chorus was in perfect accord with the beats.

Charles Hamilton's "TWA Flight 801: The Clyde Drexler Spell" review

HOLY HELL!!! I was gonna be gentle with this review but then I looked at all your other mixtapes and saw that you have been doing this for a long time and have had virtually no progress. I know you call this a new genre of music so I guess it makes sense that you switch up ya style but you have alot of basic bumbs that need grinded out like your auto tunes on Track 4- "i' "

I'm not gonna lie you do have potential but you need some better engineering. Plus try not to sound so tacky with your rhymes. Just find someone who knows more about making beats and you will be alright. The limit is the sky all you gotta do is just fly. I do applaud you for trying something new. Not alot of artist are willing to change up to see if it works for them but you do get an A for effort. Keep grinding really Really REALLY hard.

Kayben Junior's "IMPERFECTION" review

Since this is a debut mixtape I really can't have any expectations. Imma be real and just say that I did find it quite boring at the beginning Maybe its because your a new artist it was difficult to attach to your sound at first but as I continued to listen I tuned into the swag. Track 11- "Pace" does go ham. 

If I make a suggestion I would say speed up your beats and make them more simple. On track 6- "Flay Substance" the beat stopped at the end and your flow sounded pretty damn nice. Just leave all the harmonic cords to the wayside and stick to descent loop beats with a faster tempo and you will sound cold. 

Plus you swag so you know how the swag be swaggin. It's a swag swag that's going to swag up your swag. Swag Swag!. Enough swag just stay grinding and you will polish up and begin shining. I look forward towards hearing more. 

You can download this mixtape at the link below. Also I do this for free. You don't see any ads on my blog. If you have it to spare a $1 donation would really swag me up. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Scru Face Jean's "Wings" review

Its not everyday you hear of a "fast rising hip hop star" originating from Nebraska. I'm not calling whoever wrote the mixtape description a liar but I have never heard of him. It says he has worked with all these stars but why did none of them give him a feature on his mixtape? He needed that to verify his status. With that said this is a DJ Holiday release so you know its not horrible. Track 9- "Everything Is Nothing" makes alot of sense to me.

I don't want to seem like I am hating but really I am. There is nothing special about this artist. As I listened to the mixtape I would get side tracked because there is no underlying message and the beats are average at best. Artist who are pumped up by advertisement and can't back it up with talent piss me off because they have the funds to do so, when SO MANY talented artist never get attention because they don't have the funds to properly promote themselves.

With that said I only wish the best for SFJ. It appears he either has money already or he is being backed by somebody. Like him or not you will see more from him so I just hope you finds his nitch and gets better as he carries the entire state of Nebraska on his back.

Wiz Khalifa's "Blacc Hollywood: The Mixtape" review

It may be an unofficial release but it's still nice to hear Wiz Khalifa. It may be long as hell but it is a nice update of what the platinum selling artist has been up to. Can't wait for his new album due to drop any day now. Until then I will swag to tracks like Track 7- "All I Know" ft. Big Sean. BTW Soulja Boy also had a track titled "All I Know".

You really expect nothing but the best from Wiz Khalifa at this point in his career. He has set the standard when it comes to mixtape greatness. A true pioneer of the new age rapper who catapulted his career into the mainstream by fan request. He keeps a strong fanbase by never failing to please with his magical lyrics and classically beautiful beats.

One quality about Wizzy that keep him relevant is he has a mean swag. He has been swaggin for a long time and hard work pays off. It sound like in Track 9- "Paradise" you hear a sample of his Sing Swag. Ladies please hold on to your panties because Wiz Khalifa will be raiding your room, as he prepares to work dat auto tune.

You can download this mixtape at the link below. Plus I provided my services free of charge. If you want your mixtape reviewed for free please just shoot me an email at greatfrank87@gmail.com. Also feel free to donate a dollar if you have it to spare. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Paperm8 "Pay Roll (I Succeed)" review

I enjoyed listening to this mixtape. I like the nice mix of original beats and popular instrumentals. Some of the remakes sounded a lil too spoofy for my taste but still well done with professional sound quality. With only 11 tracks a great listen from beggining to end. Track 4- "Holy Water II" really snaps on track.

I located this mixtape on the comments board. I will always listen to someones mixtpae who promotes it and is on their grind. Also I listened to it because it was short. I have no clue why so many artist put so many tracks on a free mixtape you not making any money off of. Its ok to do it for a studio album because people want their money worth. I have skipped over so many mixtapes just because I don't want to hear a long ass mixtape with redundant loop  beats.

I will be on the lookout for more from Paperm8. I did think the Love Soda track was tacky because it has beed done already but the one with the classic Mase beat went hard. Also in Track 3- "I Gotta Get High" you said you signed for a Mil..STOP FRONTING and rap about what you know.Keep grinding and I will be on the lookout for more.

You can download this mixtape at the link below. Also I collect donations because this is my full time job and its kinda like a unpaid intership where I don't get paid. Please support my cause by donating one dollar. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Ballout's "Ballout From The Streets" review

CHICAGO STAND UP FOR YA BOI!!! I believe Ballout is due to great things just like Sosa. He has the same skillset but more lyrical with his fantastic use of auto tunes and video game loop beats. He is part of something special originating from the Glory Boyz Entertainment. Track 6- "Bally" really goes ham.

I believe Ballout has the potential to be just as popular as Almighty Sosa and reach the same success. His music has the ability to move you the same way Sosa's does. I had my locks swangin as I had this bangin in my whip.

I actually heard this mixtape two days ago and tried to find it on Datpiff but was unsuccessful in locating it. I didn't do a review because I didn't want to do something and not put a link to download it but luckily I worte notes as I listened so I wouldn't forget. I really want the whole GBE to make it big. I'm huge in supporting home town artist and Chicago stay on the lookout for more from Ballout.

GREEKDAGOD's "GOLDENGUN3" review

This shit go ham. I like that you keep is simple and short. Very similar to the styles of Soulja Boy with the basic vocalized hooks and deep southern bass beats. As a matter of fact you have a track that is titled the same as Soluja Boy. Track 9- "I'M ROLLING"

Nothing wrong with learning and adapting the swag of Soulja Sosa/Dre/Cortez. He is a self made millionaire and continues to please his fans with always putting out top notch mixtapes. I do have to say that I challenge the validity of what you spit. You on here talking about you all this and that but one of you instrumental mixtapes had zero downloads. Only rap about stuff you know so people do dismiss you from the jump.

Actually I think the beats you make is a much more highlight of your skills rather than your lyrics. I found it hard to keep attention to what you rapping about, but when it came to the beats I was tuned in to the swag. Keep grinding because the harder you work the better you get.

Fat Joe's "The Darkside III" review

Gotta say I never listened to anything Fat Joe has ever put out other than his radio bangers, now I see I have made a huge mistake because I have missed out on 20 years of a playa who stayed on the top of his game. This was pretty damn desert and I will have more focus on da don. Nice that he put out a tape before he gets locked away. Pay ya taxes peoples. Track 10- "Angels Sing", is a great usage of that classic instrumental

I don't know why I have never appreciated the Terror Squad god. This is a well done perfectly crafted piece of art. Really, you should expect nothing less than from the multi-platinum selling artist who has been at the very top of his game even from back when he rolled with Big Pun.

I did read a report that he is due to be incarcerated because of some sort of tax evasion. So sad that we have so many great artist serve time just because they didn't take care of their business and make sure they pay off the Gangsta IRS. Lauren Hill, Wesley Snipes, Jessie Jackson Jr.,  its sad when politicians getting locked up and they make the laws. Trust me I know because Illinois has had the last two GOVERNORS locked away for sum bullshit. Really makes no sense because money is nothing but a piece of paper that is printed. Plus the whole idea of taxes don't make sense to because they print the money and ask for it back. The whole concept is way whack.

I diverge from that. It is a great gesture that Fat Joe went about giving us a free mixtape for his fans and he now has a new one who will focus more on his pieces. 20 years long 20 years strong expect him to never fall and a great comeback when he is released from prison

Luu Breeze's "City In Gold" review

TORONTO STAND UP!!! I like this because he has a nice classical sound with harmonic sonance. Another reason I really like this is the auto tunes are perfectly tuned. This guy is something special and could be the next big thing out of Toronto following in Drakes footsteps. Track 7- "No VISA" prod. by Chinky P, really made me think.

This mixtape really hit the nail off the hammers head. NOTHING was wrong with this. Not alot of tracks so you don't get bored at the end and the auto tunes was immaculate. Sometimes people can abuse the auto tune and it starts to sound cheesy or they don't know what they are doing and they are distorted and sounds fucked up.

Also I like the harmonic vibes. It really brings a sense of real music instead of your usual loop beats that sounds the same on everybody mixtapes. I will be on the lookout for more so please keep up the good work.

You can download this mixtape at the link below. Also I do this for free but we all need money so if you have it to spare, a $1 would go a long ways towards my efforts. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Frank's "Great Frank's Place" review pt 2

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog. I started this blog in the hopes that I can give extra coverage and attention to the small name artist that come on Datpiff.com and upload a mixtape. I appreciate all the people who have visited this site and read my reviews. Plus I thank you for giving me your love and support. I am thankful for that to the utmost.

Every last bit of support that you can spare is more than appreciated. That is why I ask for donations. I don't have a job or any source of income. This is it for me. I eventually wish to attain some sort of ad revenue one day but that takes time. I still continue to work as hard as I can and do all of your reviews, I grow everyday in readers and pageviews. Thank you.

I am not a greedy man under any circumstances. I only ask for $1. I do this because I figure there is 6 Billion people on the planet and if I can just get one dollar from all of them, I will eventually be a billionaire one day and I can really do what I want to do in life. Until then I just have to find a way to support myself and I figure I would provide a service that hasn't been offered before. A free source of exposure for anybody. If you want me to review your mixtape I will do it at no charge. Even if you don't donate a dollar I will still do it for you.

You may ask yourself  "Why doesn't he just get off his bum ass and go to the street corner and ask strangers for a dollar?" The reason I don't do that is because I want to maintain some dignity. I was depressed for sometime after I lost my job and it just got worst when I would get interviews and nobody would hire me. I was trying to think of a way to find purpose in life and a way to support my moms and me. I realized all I do all day is listen to mixtapes so why not start a blog and see if all those rumors about making money on the internet are true. I did my research and they are true but it takes a long time for ad revenue to start flowing.

Doing this blog has revitalized my spirit. Even though I don't get paid, I still wake up everyday doing something that I want to do and enjoy doing. They say your goal in life should be to find something that you like doing and find a way to get paid doing it. Well I am working everyday to try and make that goal happen and it will but for now I need your help.

Now you also may say "Why does he have the donation over Paypal? I don't have any kinda card." First off let me say if you don't have a card but still have the spirit to give me that is more than enough. Allah/God/Jehovah works in misterous ways and will provide for me. But if you do have a card and want to give, Paypal is the most secure way to transfer funds over the internet. Plus by doing it over Paypal there is a record that I can keep and pay the proper taxes. I don't want to end up like all these people who collect donations and don't pay their taxes. I will NOT be caught up by the IRS and put in jail for a piece of green paper.

With that said I will continue to do my best in giving the most honest reviews being as detailed orientated as possible. I thank you for your support and reading my post. I know there isn't alot of flare or anything fancy on my blog but I am not a specialist at web design. I would much rather provide the services of a professional so that way its not tacky. Until then I will keep it simple. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Lil Jay's "Unexpected Fame" review

CHICAGO STAND UP FOR YA BOI!!! Although you almost lost me because I almost turned it off at the beginning because you dissed Sosa, I stuck with it and listened to the entire tape because I fuks wit Chiraq niggs. This is cold with similar styles to Sosa and Soulja Sosa. How you gonna dis him then try and sound like him throughout the entire mixtape? You need to learn some respect. With that said the mixtape was raw as hell.Track 15- Foreign, goes stupid ham.

I mean really, the fact you don't mess wit Sosa and tried to dis him show you have no class. Plus you constantly talking about you a legend. WHO ARE YOU? I have NEVER heard of you. NOT ONCE!!! I be in the city and no nigga has ever said "Dat Nigga Lil Jay raw as hell".Sosa run shit. You don't talk real shit. You say you wear designer everyday. Its probably the fake shit from the Swap-O-Rama in Alsip.

Also did I hear you say the name of yo click is OBG? WTF!!! Copycat ass niggas not unique and wanna steal someones swag without paying proper respects. GBE, 300, all dat shit is on top right now and you aint shit. That's why you on my blog to begin with. If you gon rep the city then be real. You have alot of talent but not to much smarts.

Music wise everything was great. Nice rhymes, great delivery, and cold beats. I noticed on about half the tracks you do that annoying shit where the track starts and then repeats after 30 seconds or so. Little shit like that can make or break a mixtape.

You can download this mixtape at the link below. Also I heard you say you was balling well if you really are ballin then ball me one of dem dollars and pay yo respects for me doing this review. Just one. You can send it through Paypal. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

L Dro's "Drohio" review

THIS SHIT COLD!!! Really nothing Don Cannon puts out is ever remotely bad. This one features the Ohio playa L Dro. Not to be confused with Hustle Gang's Young Dro, dis Dro got a mean flo. This is complete with hard hip hop beats and old skool Kayne-like beats. Track 5- You Ain't On My Level, show that Ohio niggs go stupid raw.

I have no clue how Don Cannon does it. He puts out about 3 mixtapes a week and not one of them is anywhere near whack. I mean you would think he occasionally would put out something whack to show that he is human but NO. This is a legend already made and stupid paid. Hard work pays off and he I my motivation to go everyday.

Ohio go hard. They are all unique and nobody has a swag like Ohio, down in Ohio. Who Dey? Dey dem boyz like L Dro that's going places with that mean flow. It gels really nice with the old skool beats like Track 9-"I Want You". He carries that Ohio Sole that the great state is known for. Keep grinding and I'll be on the lookout.

You can download this mixtape at the link below. Also I do this for free but I still go hard every day to put my niggs on. If you have it to spare, a $1 donation would be extraordinary and make me so happy. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Migos & Rich The Kid's "Streets On Lock" review

This is another mixtape I heard before I started my blog and I listen to on my phone quite often. This is a pure down south banger to please anyone who likes to crank dem 15's in the trunk. Every track on here goes ham with a nice Gucci Main vibe. Track 16- "9 On Me" ft. Chief Keef and Ballout, is my shit and I don't even like the Cowboys.

I had never heard of Migos or Rich The Kid but they were well known with and established fan base and a multiple amounts of big name features on this tape. This was totally ray and they on thier way toward making it stupid big.

Tristian White's "Kids With Dreams" review

I came across this mixtape doing a review for the artist Kid With Dreams. THIS SHIT COLD!!! I mean this guy really has alot of talent somewhat resembling the styles of Drake. Beats is raw as hell and goes ham. Track 2- Fashioned House Mobsters, goes stupid hard.

The only reason I gave this a listen is there's only 6 tracks. How you not gonna listen to that. Even though there wasn't alot of tracks I was still tuned in and swaggin. Nothing wrong with sounding like Drake. He a multi millionaire.  I do have to say this came out last year WHY YOU AIN'T BEEN GRINDING?!! New artist who are serious should come out with at least one mixtape a month to help gain recognition for your name.

Kids With Dreams' "Mixed Messages" review

Thank you for hitting me up Kid With Dreams. I will say that these lyrics are well written. Every thing makes sense and the beat are sweet and neat. You are on your way to be great. Track 2-KWD prod. by DJ Premier, is the highlight of this mixtape.

I wouldn't be doing a service if I wasn't completely honest and I must state that the rhyme delivery method is fucked up. It sounds like you wrote some raw ass rhymes but didn't fully connect with the rhythmic pattern of the beats. It wasn't on every track but at least half. This is something that take time to attain so don't feel bad just keep grinding and going and you will and you will start to snap. Hit me up again when you put out another mixtape.

Reno Chinati's "Ca$hkingz(Instrumentals)"

CHICAGO STAND UP FOR YA BOI!!! Well at least he rep us so we need to have his back because these beats are cold and guaranteed to get sold. Shoot me a email GreatFrank87@gmail.com I'll defiantly fuks with anybody in da Chi, were real niggs die.

I can't come close to saying how good each and every last one of these beats are. What I like is how they are unique with the fast tempo loops and occasional suttle pauses. Very Nice! I was tuned in and swaggin hard to these beat. Really you should just sell an album with the beats alone. No need for a vocalist

Majid Jordan's "Afterhours EP" review

This is not your usually R&B hip hop mixtape. It has more of a Indie vibe that had me enamored from beginning to end.The title is fitting because this is something you spend an evening with your significant other. Although he don't sound like him, these beat have a sound that Michael Jackson would have made a hit song to. Track 2- Hold Tight, sounds so right.

I do have to say that the vocals could have been recorded a little better. In some some tracks it's difficult to understand what your saying but the hip energizer beats allow you to swag to the track with relative ease. Also I would have liked if the throughout the entire piece. Just sounds better in my opinion.

With only 8 tracks I really can't complain about anything because I was tuned in to every last loop. The fact that you started out with a reggae beat off bat got me hooked because I love reggae. I also loved this mixtape so please download it when you get a chance.

Cam Young's "Mirrors" review

Everyone should listen to Cam Young with is piano based beats and individual smooth rap styles he makes a piece of art. With 11 tracks your guaranteed to have a good time an enjoy this as you mellow out after a rough day. Track 4- "Walking On Water" is a lyrical masterpiece.

I really enjoy the sound of a piano. It has a classical feel and really simple sounding that captivates you and charms your musical intellect. I have nothing negative to say and that is a rarity with first time artist. Two strong points for me is the absence of any radio instrumentals (although Track -Photograph is the beat off some commercial) and there is only 11 tracks. Short and tasteful from beginning to end. I look forward to hearing more.

You can download this mixtape at the link below. Also please don't hesitate to help finance my cause.

Drake review

Ok I promised to start reviewing some big name artist to see if I can attract more readers. I have been kinda tough of Drake because every time I turn on a hip hop station here in the Chicago are his songs is getting played on repeat. I could understand if it was R Kelly or Almighty Sosa because they from the Chi,  but Drake isn't even from this country. Now I don't want anyone out there to think I am hating on Drake because quite frankly he is a musical Genius. What I am hating on is how unfair the mainstream media is and how they don't even try to support the hometown artist. Its like Young Money owns the radios stations. There is very little variety in the selection of who they choose to play. Even as I type this I find it uneasy I am giving him extra coverage.

Before I go too hard I must remind myself this is a review on Drake. I am proud of him and honestly kinda jealous because he gets so much attention, but every last bit a attention he receives is well deserved. He doesn't make mixtapes anymore but "Comeback Season", "Room For Improvement" and "So Far Gone" was and still are some the best I have ever heard. It would be nice if he did make another free one but he bout that money and I don't blame him at all.

When he came out with "Thank Me Later" I personally believe he single handled saved Hip-Hop. One of the reasons he got so big was because he put out real music at a time when hip-hip portrayed a pure negative message. He doesn't talk about gang banging or killing, all he spits about is making money and living the good life.. Something we all strive for. He feed us something that hadn't been put out in a very long time. He is a master on how to capture your entire soul when he puts out the great ballets. I have not bothered to listen to anything after his debut album because everything gets played on air.

Everybody talks about how he had money before he started rapping. How he is from the suburbs and a on a Teen Nick soap opera. SO THE FUCK WHAT? He still put in crazy work to gain the spot that he is at now.  He has earned the respect of all his peers and that's why he is one the top earners making about 20 Million a year.


Ben Fisher's "Destiny Vs. Desire" review

This "Destiny Vs. Desire" is pure hot fire!!! What I really like is there is only 10 tracks but he still sapped  PLUS there is a reggae rap remix of Bob Marley and The Wailers' "Jammin" -Track 6

I love hip hop but at the same time I do love other genres of music. Reggae is number one in my heart and anyone that does reggae rap remix is the shit. This also has tracks with some nice jazz vibes. YESSIR! 

This being my third mixtape of the morning i really appreciated that there was only 10 tracks. No radio beats THANK GOD but a nice sample from Nas' "Second Childhood" off the Stillmatic album. Very well selection that show the tasteful fan of a great. 

You can download this link on the link provided below. Also I grind so you can shine. Unfortunately this hustle doesn't pay so I have to ask for your charity. One Single Dollar is all that I need  because I have no greed. It would be greatly appreciated if you could spare one for the advancement of Great Frank's Place. Thank you for visiting. .

Dellio's "#AnotherMemo" review

Great piece to showcase Dellio and his skills. Its short but very nice. With 6 tracks how you not gonna fuk w/ ya boi. Track 6- "Go Ham" goes ham.

I choose to listen to this mixtape because it was short but still great. Was It a positive that it was a short one because most of it was radio beat. Nothing wrong with radio beats but it shows no uniqueness  He will makes up for it because his flow is pretty good.

Mike JOEY is COLD!!! Really, everything he put on this was just magnificent. The Jazz vibes will make you rise on the morning surprise. Rap as flawless and unblemished defiantly deserves to be heard. Kinda sound like Chance the Rapper another Chiraq Cat. Track 13- "We Wrote A Song About It" prod. by Freddie Joachim, is stupid trippy.

Another quality I noticed about this tape was how the beats was constructed. They were more string orientated rather than your usual drums. Not that there is anything wrong with drums. Track 15- "Use Me" prod. by RayAyy, sounds to me like a reggae beat. This was a primer piece of pleasure. 

I wouldn't be doing him any favor by not pointing out that it was a bit lengthy. 25 Tracks is alot but its ok because I had some pot and this shit rocked. I noticed you put your radio beats at the end. THANK YOU!!! You know know how much I appreciate that. You have no clue how many people have did their own verson of Drake's "Versace". Its raw but its already played on the radio infinatly and putting it at the end didn't make me feel bad for skiping it. 

You can download this mixtape at the link below. Also do you know that I can collect donations. "WELL IF YOU DON'T KNOW, NOW YOU KNOW!!!"-Biggie Smalls. Its so simple and all I am asking for is One Single Dollar. That's all I allow people to give me. Just click on the link below the mixtape link. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place

Changes to Great Franks Place

Hello, thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place. I created this blog for all the smaller artist who are looking to grow their name so they possibly one day can be played on the radio like Drake and Jay Z. This takes time and grind. If you expect to grow you NEED people like me talking about you and keeping every work you put out there relevant. Without bloggers successful rappers like Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y wouldn't be shit, but by collaborating up with people and continuously making great music they are were they want to be at the top. This is a full time job for me with no guaranteed pay or benefits that's why I set up a donation link.

I do not ask for much. One Single Dollar is all I need to stay motivated and keep going. As a matter of fact if you click on the link you will see that I have it set up so I can ONLY accept $1 donations. I am not greedy or money hungry. I do this for the love of music NOT THE MONEY. Money is nothing but a piece of paper that is printed but we all need it to survive. I consider this my full time job and I work as hard as I can. I am of service to anyone and if you want your mixtape reviewed simply ask me and I will do it for FREE!

With that stated I NEED MORE READERS!!! I just started about a week ago and everything was going fine and dandy until Datpiff.com updated their commenting system. My average page views per day has dropped tremendously. I like the new system and its not a problem. I will just have to adapt.

In my efforts toward adapting I realize nobody wants to read about no-name artist. I know it sucks but it's the truth and the truth can sting like a razor blade slicing through your soul. So from now on I will not exclusively do the small artist I will review the big names as well. I will hold them to the same standards that I hold the smaller guys. I just started and this is a work in progress, but I promise you that I try my hardest everyday so that I can grow and in return you will grow.

So please tell all your friends about this blog and feel free to give your dollar donation if you have it in your heart to spare. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Steven King's "Laugh At My Pain" review

Steven King do them things. Great lyricist with a unique beats to carry his punchline to perfection. With exerts from the comedy stand up Kevin Hart's "Laugh At My Pain" this is sure to keep you entertained with an extensive number of tracks with lengthy track times you will be just fine. Track 3- "League Of My Own" really hits home.

I can definitely tell he is from the New York area with your multiple punchlines and you Harlemish/Bronxish accent. I could be wrong but this is very well written. Plus I enjoy how you have the Kevin Hart interludes. Only issue I have is that on some of the tracks I turned up and at the end of the track there was the Kevin Hart part and it was extremely distorted because that was a live recorded event. 

Plus I found it unnecessary for you to have so many tracks Don't get me wrong they all was cold, but what generally happens when you have a 20+ tracks is you kinda get disinterested. Think of it like being at a restaurant and it takes the waiter too long to get you the bill. You still enjoyed the piece but at the same time you ready to go. If you have that many tracks its best if you keep the run time short. You do want people to hear your entire mixtape so keep it short and you will be great. Just my opinion. 

You can download this mixtape at the link below. Also I just wanted to let you know that I am able to collect donations. I do my best to give a honest review for any artist starting out and has dreams of making it big. I do this free of charge but I do need funds to survive. If you were to donate One Single Dollar to my paypal it would be appreciated in ways you couldn't imagine. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Bo Deal's "Thug Education 101" review

CHICAGO STAND UP FOR YA BOI!!! He a home town nigg and this mixtape is the shit! THIS SHIT COLD!!! Turned up from beginning to end. Not to be confused with Young Jeezy's "Thug Motivation: 101" but this still goes stupid hard with real talk. He from Chiraq so you know Bo Deal a real nigg. Track 8- Drama ft P. Rico and Waka Flocka make this bang harder.

Track 9- I'm A Opp,  where he is just speaking real talk. Chicago niggs need to squad up and swag out. Too much negativity for us to be separated and beefin over stupid shit. We all fuck up repeatedly, part of being a sinner, but we need to ask for repentance and become some winners. I'm on my grind all the time just hit me up if you wanna shine. I'll roll through your spot and get the shit hot. Hit some tracks and smoke some pot.

C.J. Gatz's "Omega" review

I heard this mixtape a week or so ago before I started my blog. I love this mixtape. I do download everything I listen to, but very few of the ones I download I actually put on my phone sd card to listen. I have felt bad because I have been listening to this without giving C.J. Gatz a proper review.

One of my post I sad I know of some white rappers that could give Curren$y a run for his money and C.J. is one of them. I discovered him of the comments he was asking everybody to listen to his work. All you have to do is listen to this one time and you will fall in love with his smooth jazz feel and positive lyrical vibe.

I don't want people focus of the fact I pointed out he was white. When you make good music the color of your skin could be turquoise like in Avatar and nobody would care. This is another grinder that just has to stay on it and good things are bound to happen.

You can download this mixtape on the link below. Also I am able to collect donations through paypal. One Single Dollar is all I need to help with the growth of Great Frank's Place. I do this for all aspiring artist so as I grow, everyone I review grows so if you have it to give I greatly appreciate your donation. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Cypha The Great's "Good Times" review

For a freshman album Cypha The Great did his thang. I was frozen in my seat as I swag to his beats. This was made with pure grind and hustle. If he keeps doing that he will shine and have muscle. Track 7 "Good Times" is my fav.

Somewhat takes me back to old Dipset days, like Kayne's old beats when he cared. Reminds me of the rap style of Hell Rell. BTW He has a new mixtape coming out in a few days. Make sure you cop that and cop this "Good Time" mixtape because it will have you tuned into another realm as he concocts a plethora of rhymes and well executed beats. I do have to say the the vocals didn't sound properly tuned and there is some slight unclarity but it still goes in with the raw ass lyrics. A round of applause for the artist Cypha The Great because he didn't do that by mistake. Just put in more work and you just gotta wait. 

You can download this mixtape at the link below. Also did you know I am able to collect donations? I just saw that when you visit the blog on a moble device you don't have a hyperlink to click on to donate. I will try to fix that, but while I do you can click on the link below under donate to provide One Single Dollar through Pay Pal. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.

Sasha Go Hard's "Nutty World Hosted By Dj Victoriouz" review

Sasha Go Hard, going to make it large. She already got her rap on a snap, on these beats that jap. Listen to her flow, because she got it bro, a glory girl she glo? Enough of the fancies. This is an established primer sounding with the exuberant lyrics to match. Track 6- Keep It 100 ft Rockie Fresh, to me is the best.

Here goes another sexy female lyricist to add to the mix of next top banger. The ladies have been outperforming the gents on a regular bases these day. This is something you can bang in the club or throw at the strip club. ;)

Her rap style somewhat reminds me of Trina. She used to do sum strange thangs to get the blang blang. BANG BANG! I'm sorry, I know I can do much better than that.. :'(

To be honest I don't know why I be rhyming in the reviews. I know they sound corny and totally fucked up. That's what happens when you listen to Sosa. But this is not a review for Sosa this is a review for ~SAHSA~ and she is very interested in going hard on ya boys so support our sexy sista.

You can download this mixtape on the link below. BTW did you know I collect donations on the top link in the description. One simple dollar will make me holla. Woo! Hoo!

Franks "Great Frank's Place" review

Every now and then I will review myself so it helps me get better at this blogging. BTW if any of you are successful bloggers and see something I am doing wrong or have any suggestions please shoot me an email at GreatFrank87@gmail.com.

First thing I want to point out in my DONATION link. Please by all means feel no pressure towards giving especially if you come here and appreciate all the hard work I am doing trying to get extra exposure for all the talented artist trying to get on. I know I just started but I am dedicated to this and I do my very best to be fair in every mixtape I review.

This blog will NOT be driven by negative nasty comments as most other blogs are. If you come here to read my post and expect to see me badgering an artist because their stuff is bad, then you came to the wrong website. I wish to grow my blog into a platform for ANY artist that has dreams of making it big. If you want me to review your mixtape all you have to do is ask me on my Datpiff.com Profile page or email me. I will do it FREE of charge. Now I will tell the BARE TRUTH. If yo shit sucks then that is exactly what I am going to say. Take it as constructive criticism. Just don't upload any garbage and you won't be called so.

With that said I am doing this FREE of charge. We all know the best things in life are free. We have free porn, free workout videos (s/o Dulcinea Hellings) and free music. I do this on my own free time because I have alot of it due to the fact I am unemployed. I have had job interviews and keep applying but nobody will hire me. Since this has been the case for sometime, I told myself I will try a new venture.

 I realized all I do all day is play Madden, watch my anime and ESPN, and listen to the mixtapes on Datpiff. As I kept listening I realized there are WAY more good mixtapes than bad, but nobody talks about them. When it comes to extra exposure the small name artist art on their own. Well not anymore because I work day and night listening and posting. The more I grow the more you will grow. I eventually wish to have enough readers so I can generate some ad revenue. For now I will have to rely on the charity of others.

I know most people are reluctant toward giving others money over the internet but its better than being scammed and tricked out your money buying some product you will get in the mail and its pure crap or you don't even bother opening it. If you were to send me some funds you can rest assure that your donation will go towards the growth of Great Frank's Place. Why even sending me ONE SINGLE DOLLAR helps me out in ways you couldn't come close to imagine.

What is one dollar? Two loose squares? You don't need to be smoking those anyway. A McDoubble at McDonald's? You know you don't need that fatty mess in yo system clogging you up. You probably wasted a dollar leaving on the TV last night raising yo electric bill. If and only if you do have it to spare I would appreciate it in ways you couldn't imagine. The transaction will be directed over paypal, a solid secure method of transferring funds.

I promise you I wish I didn't have to resort to these measures. I would much prefer to have ad revenue but I just started and that takes time to attain. This is totally out of my comfort zone but then I realized that Politicians, Ministers, Charities, even PBS ask people for money and they do it proudly so I should suck it up and kindly ask that if you are able to spare just one singular dollar you will be blessed in ways you couldn't imagine. Thank you for visiting Great Frank's Place.
