Summer Songs of 2014 – When Isaiah Got His Musical Mojo

I imagine myself watching Isaiah walk down the aisle – graduation, wedding, court – and thinking back to this summer. This summer when he would change from an 8yo who was happy listening to what I had playing on the stereo, to a 9yo kid with an opinion. It turned out that was okay, because,

Twisted MixTape 52 – Greatest Hits
