He indicated that we all have been conditioned to have a script of the ideal person and the ideal relationship. This script can include anything from physical characteristics to financial status and personality type. When we first fall in love and have those butterflies in our stomach and fire in our hearts, it’s probably due to us feeling like we found the man or woman of o
Atlanta, GA; Good Life Music Group teams up with Lil Donald, who already has a solid following and name via releases of various records. The union made sense due to both Good Life Music Group and Lil Donald having solid foundations; together they drop his latest track "Clap Yo Hands". "Clap Yo Hands" brings in feature artist Ghetto Barbie and has production by Mr217.
