Remember when Charles Hamilton shut down the Booth last week with an electrifying off-the-top freestyle that referenced his "Jamaican Baby Momma"? Well, Charles never stopped ever rapping. As soon as he finished listening to his first go round he demanded we let him back in the booth for round two. 

Premiering today is Hamilton's follow-up effort, "A Rainy Day in Harlem." Filmed and recorded at #AudiomackStudios, we once again find Charles going completely off the dome, this time over a more soulful backing from producer Dree The Drummer. Your perfect soundtrack to that rainy day in the streets of Harlem.

Don't forget to check out Charles' previous effort if you haven't already, as well as his recently released EP, The Black Boxand keep it locked (and subscribe to our YouTube channel) for more audio and visual dopeness from Lil Bibby, D12, Tommy Swisher and more.

We hope you feel blessed, because following entries from Casey Veggies, LocksmithChaz French, Don Mykel and more, we have reached the seventeenth 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.
