Turkey day is the Day after tomorrow, and we all know what that means. It means family togetherness, lots of food, and an opportunity to put your Christmas wish list on the table. For most people, it won’t be all hugs, kisses, and cranberry sauce, so GaptoothDiva Radio’s I’esha GaptoothDiva and Boonyevilla are going to give you some great tips and advice on how to handle this year’s Thanksgiving drama. We want to motivate you to not stab your long lost cousin or that uncle that just got out of jail, in support of family love and inspiration. Listen as we tell stories from past thanksgiving dinners, and how we plan to bring the love and blessings back to the table. Joining us is Young Damon, Featured Artist of The Week -  The perfect prototype of an enterprising person, Yung Damon! is successfully emerging amongst a generation of trap rappers, blank music, and blah music with crafty lyrical talent like no other in his class. Growing up in Savannah, GADamon was isolated from rap music. Restricted from the vulgarity and profanity of rap, he instead listened to R&B greats like Patti Labelle, Smokey Robinson, Tevin Camplbell, Brian McKnight. In spite of the early exposure to classics like “Footsteps In The Dark”, his sharp writing ability was actually recognized and applauded in school when given poems and short stories as writing assignments. In 2003, he began to rap as a hobby with his [younger/older] cousin, JR. The two would challenge one another's word play, freestyling over downloaded instrumentals or songs on the radio. "I was better than he was... he stopped rappin," says Damon as he thinks back. "My work ethic was stronger too, so when I realized I had this skill I started trying to make something more of it."  Listen to find out more about our featured artist of the week and our thanksgiving tips & ricks.
