Mickey Factz – Letter to Sonic (Prod. by Charles Hamilton)

July 29th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

If this were 2009, a song that had any word possibly referencing Sonic The Hedgehog, then I and most other hip-hop heads would know that song probably has something to do with Charles Hamilton. Today hearing Brooklyn rapper Charles Hamilton‘s name is not real common among the hip-hop blogs as he has had his own struggles which have curtailed his music career.

However Charles Hamilton as a producer I’m a huge fan of, as you got this retro beat, loving the piano, rapping from Mickey Factz is solid, overall a pretty good song worth listening to. If they replaced the piano with some catchy electronic/dance beat, you think this would be a more popular song.

Hot New Mixtapes!

August 14th, 2010 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, R&B |

Three new mixtapes came out this week. One by an up-and-coming rap artist in Mac Miller, another by an up-and-coming R&B;/Hip-Hop artist in Bei Maejor and one by an artist who received much hype in 2009 but then things fell apart, and now he is on a comeback, Charles Hamilton.

I have listened to all three mixtapes and my favorite is Bei Maejor’s Upside Down mixtape. With several mainstream artists featured on it including Trey Songz, T-Pain, Drake and Keri Hilson, this mixtape should’ve really been Bei Maejor’s debut album, especially with Clinton Sparks producing it.

Mac Miller also has a good new mixtape entitled K.I.D.S. I really enjoy several songs on this hip-hop mixtape that has some real chill songs as well as some upbeat songs that I hope to hear more of from this Pittsburgh native. My favorite songs on the mixtape are “Don’t Mind If I Do”, “The Spins” and “Nikes On My Feet”.

Recently Charles Hamilton put out the mixtape Tafietu which is considered an album by other bloggers since this was supposed to be his debut album until Interscope executives heard a couple of songs and decided to pull the plug. The mixtape/album is OK and the only song I can listen to constantly is “3rd and Goal” which if I think could be a single and possibly get radio play if Charles Hamilton didn’t have such a bad reputation lately (just released from a mental hospital, dropped from record label, etc.).
