Intuition – "Hold Your Breath" ft. Raquel Rodriguez


Here’s another new track from Intution, LA emcee who has been coming up with good music track after track lately. Something about his word choice and delivery remind me of a west coast Slug (of Atmosphere), but he’s a little more lighthearted and a little less emo.

Gotta new album leak today from Girls Like Me. It’s called “Hold Your Breath” featuring Raquel Rodriguez. She’s a really dope singer that has done tracks with Dom Kennedy, H.O.P.E., Lite and a few others. The song is just a real funky/jazzy feel good cut, I think you’ll dig it.

Everything is still on schedule for the record to be released on January 26th. Just got signed to a new imprint of Alpha Pup Records, called Hellfyre Club. Physical copies available on the 26th of January and digital release will be on February 9th through all major digital distributors.

Charles Hamilton Speaks


Woody just hit me with this via email. Charles’ blog up and vanished during his hiatus, so now he’s using Woody’s blog to speak on a few things.

Where is Charles Hamilton?

Here I am, out of my protective external bubble, and into my own. I have made mistakes, angered some, confused others, fought guidance and embraced chaos. At the same time, I learned about self-growth, got acclaim for my work, touched hearts and developed positive relationships. All in the never-ending learning experience that goes into the growth of a young person.

Some things are too circumstantial to explain. The best way to cover all ground, without placing blame and removing myself from responsibility is to say, no matter the intentions, make sure you are sure about every move. Whether it be an administrator you work with, or divine intervention, there is a voice that can guide you, without making you feel like you’re being intruded.

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. I had publicly done several things to my image and reputation that made my very word suspect. This doesn’t stop at album info or YouTube videos. Something was aggravating me on the inside, and the last thing I wanted to do was let anyone in on how I was really feeling. Anxiety about being a “top artist”, the classic “I don’t fit in” syndrome. Things that I thought I got over came back into my memories with a vengeance.

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. As it turns out, not only were a lot of people listening, but because of the vast quantity of music, it was hard to keep up with. For the masses and for the company I worked for.

Needless to say, I was on edge, but internally.

I wanted a comeback that is both epic and subtle. I recorded 4 projects, one of which being “Normalcy”. I had so much on my mind. Don’t ever think I stopped doing music. I just had a heavy heart and to be blunt, there will never be such an insane barrage of Charles Hamilton music. But returning to the surface with a project that both explains and soothes was key. I’m very proud of “Normalcy”. It is the first time where there is no underlying plot or theme to follow. Want to know about the label situation, “Enter the Scope”. Wonder why I haven’t slept with all the women in Brooklyn after the success of “Brooklyn Girls”? Listen to “She’s Purrty”. My main concerns? “Baby Says I Want”.

“Normalcy” in effect is the interview that clears the air, starring Mike Rofone as the host. Lol.

Also, I shyed away from my regular “lo-fi” sound, to let the people know I hear the complaints of clarity that have mocked my music since its first push of the play button. I still have “edgy”, “lo-fi” music, but I would rather everyone say “Not only is the music good, but it doesn’t sound weird”. Who knows what sound the world may hear, especially in the dawn of the new decade.

Time will allow me to reveal who I am working with as far as getting the music out there. What I can say, is that my team exemplifies the evolution of the music business. Some industry players, some from other fields. We are embracing the changing landscape of this game. Time to win. Right now, embrace me for who I am and know that I love all Starchasers, supporters, family… Everyone that has played a role in the baptism of Charles Hamilton. I am appreciative, and I am working on making this year and every other as progressive and CALM as chances allow.

Thank you.

Video! Aubrey Graham – "Unscripted"

Here is a video of Aubrey Graham; “Unscripted”.

This is almost like an episode of MTV Cribs but with a different name. I’m guessing this aired on whatever channel Degrassi used to come on. Aubrey is giving us a peek into his life (around the time when he was still playing Jimmy on Degrassi) & his house. Very interesting to watch if you ask me.

The White Panda – "Lean Back Wit It" + "Throw Some Tic On That Toc" (Mash Ups)


The White Panda recently put out their mixtape Versus, full of mash ups and condensed for an hour of party-fest intensity sometimes followed by guilt because you’re fist pumping to the vocals of a song that you probably talked shit on at some point in the past 5 months. That’s the beauty of The White Panda – they can take two songs you dislike, even hate, and mash them together to make a song that makes you want to fill a room with 1,000 helium balloons and go ape.

Down to the titles of their songs, these guys are masters of their craft. The fucking mash-up – an artform that is often misunderstood, ridiculed, abused, and severely underestimated – the fucking mash-up. Here are two that were on Versus but chopped down. These are the full versions, and they are both great.
