I am seriously digging this guy... was addicted to drugs and alcohol, now trying to turn his life around for his 2.5 year old son. And he's an excellent rapper (IMO).


Trying to figure out the lyrics to his song... if anyone wants to help, jump in! This is what I have so far:

Ahh, yeah
Ahh, yeah

Ah, So open up my mind with these smoking words
Let this music chill like an overture
Yeah she's the only one, Ah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, so I go with her

Ooh, and that's how it's supposed to be
Living life with loved ones close to me
Shhh, ah, this is the remedy
Now get the recipe
I don't need no heresy

Yeah, it's been two months now
Haven't had a drink and I'm starting to see clear now
I putting all my fears down
I can hear the cheers now
Seeing peace signs when I look around

Eh, young homie what you trippin' on?
Looking at life like how did I get it wrong
But life's too short gotta live it long
To my brothers and sisters and where we get along

Eh, big homie what you trippin' on?
Yeah yeah what you trippin' on?
Life's too short gotta live it long
To my brothers and sisters and where we get along

Give peace to the world and the streets
Give peace to the eve of the creaves, yeah
It takes education
To change your reputation
From good to bad in better now you're elevating

Baby singing, families saying, everybody's chillin'
Not gonna stop this livin' on the feelin'
Man this is the real thing
Tell me that you hear me
So wait til they drop this dancing on the ceiling

Eh, young homie what you trippin' on?
Lookin' at life like how did I get it wrong
What you trippin' on?
Life's too short gotta live it long
To my brothers and sisters and where we get along

They never thought I'd make it this far
Look now here we are
See I never thought I'd take it this far

First of all, I've never seen the X Factor, but if this guy is still on it, I might need to start watching it....

Must say, it's unholy seeing Simon Cowell smiling....

Haha, it doesn't happen often, that's for sure! I'm really only watching the show because I like seeing Simon bombard people with insults when they really think they're great, and they're not. He didn't do a whole lot of that last night though, I was rather disappointed.

America's Got Talent is great for that, just because of how horrible the people that go on are. Mainly, because they don't audition, if I recall. They just wait in line to go on stage.

i think you got one lyric wrong. pretty sure he said hennessy not heresy, since hes a recovering alcoholic. and hennessy is a brand of cognac.

Ahh, yeah

Oh nice ultimate, good catch.

BTW... it's funny. When I posted this video, it had 305 views. I looked last night (a mere 24 hours later) and it has 356,000 views. This guy is gonna go far, real far.

Looks like he's actually got a few songs in the works, a few out, and Young Homie is on itunes now. Too bad they don't have an acoustic version with no autotune.

Yeah, I really enjoyed the "raw" performance he did onstage. I remember listening to the autotuned version afterward and disliking it.

Annoying 13 year old.
Didn't this guy get only 3rd place?
Seems strange for someone who writes, produces, and sings most of his material to be put to third. :S

Thanks to LA Reid for making this guy famous. I went to the Ellen Show the day he was performing. I got to meet him afterwards. Even if he did get famous, he isn't some stuck up guy who doesn't care about the people who made him famous. :p

i heard young homie on a local radio station yesterday. but the beat was better than the basic one he made himself.
