A new year ushers in new resolutions and new goals, as well as eventually giving up on those resolutions and perhaps those goals. Most importantly, however, the new year brings new heat courtesy of our ongoing #BlessTheBooth series, and what better way to kick off 2016 than with one of the more gifted off-the-top lyricists of the last half-decade?
Say what you will about Charles Hamilton, the Harlem emcee and producer who's seen plenty of controversy throughout the course of his career in the spotlight, but the man has always been a creative bursting with talent. Now firmly entrenched in his resurgence, C-H-A-R stopped by #AudiomackStudios to showcase his undeniable penchant for freestyling, not once but TWICE.
Go ahead and press play on his first offering, "My Jamaican Baby Momma," a Dree The Drummer-produced onslaught premiering today exclusively in the Booth. After that, make sure to check out Hamilton's recently released EP, The Black Box, and keep it locked (and subscribe to our YouTube channel) for more audio and visual dopeness from CH, Lil Bibby, D12, Tommy Swisher and more.
We hope you feel blessed, because following entries from Casey Veggies, Locksmith, Chaz French, Don Mykel and more, we have reached the sixteenth installment in our Bless The Booth series. For those not up to date, Bless The Booth has taken over for our now completed DJBooth Freestyle Series, which ran on and off for the past six years and included contributions from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa, Yelawolf, Big K.R.I.T. and more.
From the DJBooth headquarters at #AudiomackStudios, located in the heart of SoHo, NYC, to your laptop or phone (more likely), Bless The Booth brings you exclusive bars from your favorite emcees. Characterized by its off the cuff nature, our Bless The Booth series is the result of artists coming through our office to kick back and have a drink or two while enjoying the comforts of our newly remodeled digs. After cycling through a wide range of beats and achieving the optimal vibe, it's time to head into the booth and hit record.
