As Peter Rosenberg explains at the start of the interview, Charles Hamilton was one of the first rappers to blow up on the internet. Hamilton, one of the 10 artists on the inaugural 2009 XXL Freshmen cover, and subsequently was really one of the main rappers we started covering here on The Masked Gorilla when the site started in 2009. Of course shortly after his rise, Charles Hamilton's career ended up going downhill rather quickly with a flurry of ridiculous self-inflicted negative incidents, eventually leading to a serious mental-breakdown. This morning Hamilton finally broke his silence on Hot 97 with Peter Rosenberg. The rapper spoke about how his career took off, his downfall, his mental-health, what's next, and of course in typical Hamilton fashion spit a freestyle at the end.
