Charles Hamilton Explains Disappearance

Posted By on January 6, 2010

    Freshman rapper Charles Hamilton recently wrote an open letter explaining where and what he was doing as fans have been asking what exactly happened with his recent disappearance from the hip-hop spotlight, during which rumors started that he was dropped by Interscope Records. Hamilton first explained where he was and why he was gone. "My time out of the proverbial limelight had many different motives. The first and most important was to make sure that my own sanity and health was in tact…Second, I had to get things right with my mother and family. Some things were in print and in music that required the family to talk in person. I wasn't always around, and every family has their skeletons."

    Charles then confirmed that he was dropped by his record label. "When the news broke about me being released from the label, I wasn't mad. Just frustrated at the fact I would be asked a million pressing questions about it. My emotions were already numb at personal stuff, and I knew that being the (insert adjective here) of the music business would make me a humor target. Whatever I thought. All I wanted to do was release my music to the masses and be heard on the scale of legends…I am appreciative, and I am working on making this year and every other as progressive and CALM as chances allow."
