LISTEN: “Deuces” by Charles Hamilton
Charles Hamilton is a workaholic hip-hop phenom that never quite breaks into a groove, but he loves making mixtapes. His latest featuring “Deuces” is a keeper. I first took notice of this MC when he first released “Brooklyn Girls” a year ago. Since then, I just waited for Hamilton to take the throne that was rightfully his. He’s a talented geek who loves rapping about video games and girls in New York, and I relate to him because he doesn’t pretend to be anyone else other than himself–and that’s pretty hard to accomplish in hip-hop when there’s pressure to come like a gangster all the time. I love the beat of “Deuces,” and it just makes me wonder when he will, if ever, release an album. When, Hamilton, WHEN???!
