If you’ve ever heard of Charles Hamilton or followed him previously then you know how eccentric, egotistical, and consistent he WAS with his music. Charles had a campaign at the end of ’08 where he released a new mixtape (with all new content) every 2 weeks for 3 months. After that he was releasing tapes and trying to promote his album. Charles pulled a pretty large “no-no” right before his albums release, he added the late great J Dilla (if you don’t know him, you will when you check his resume) as an exec. producer on his album. A lot of people close to the Dilla camp took this as a negative action and essentially killed his buzz by comments, posts, videos. Now he’s back in the limelight he’s released 2 tapes already this year, and now collaborating with more artists. He’s also been less cocky, arrogant, etc etc etc.
B.O.B. is a newer artist that is bubbling pretty big in the industry. Originally from Atlanta, he’s catching the eye of some the big artists & blogs that follow hip hop. His debut album “The Adventures of Bobby Ray” is set to drop on April 27th and he’s been putting himself out there in light of that album release date. I’m not too sure if this track is going to be on an upcoming mixtape or not but regardless he GOES IN.
