Lady Gaga harpist and singer, songwriter Tulani Jolley (formerly Rashida Jolley) has released an album with the help from some special little friends with the proceeds going to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington. We at DaddysCool are very excited about this. Jolley made an awesome impression on my young girls who attend Clubhouse #14 in DC. When I picked them up one night, they went on and on about Jolley. She so inspired and encouraged them. Now Jolley is using her time there with my daughters and the other kids to give back to them. Proof positive that DadsRule see below what Jolley says:
“My father inspired me to give back all that was given to me, and so it is an honor to release the “BE YOU” EP featuring the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington on iTunes & Amazon. 50 percent of proceeds will go to support ARTS programs for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington. Please support our youth who need us most. The iTunes link to get the “BE YOU” EP is:

In a new video promo for his album, Jay-Z discusses how his shortcomings as a father and husband stem from not having a father himself. In his new song “Blue,” Jay reveals his fears of fatherhood and in “Heaven,” he discusses his interaction with his daughter Blue Ivy for all those willing to listen. His new album Magna Carta Holy Grail drops soon; actually July 4th, if you have a Samsung. So you will have to wait.
If there is one thing that can be said about his music is that he sprinkles heartfelt truth here and there. This is something that can’t be said about most Hip Hop these days. It would appear that with being a dad he is shedding more of his braggadocio and bling to show more of his makeup as a man.
“I have a daughter,” Jay-Z explains. “It’s the paranoia of not being a great dad.” Fatherhood will change you! If it doesn’t you are not doing it right. You can take that to the bank.
