Where Are They Now?: 2009 Freshman Recap

Charles Hamilton
After getting punched in the face by his girlfriend on camera in late ’09, Hamilton became the butt of many jokes. His Interscope debut,This Perfect Life, ended up a mixtape when the label shelved it and dismissed his record contract. More drama came when the Harlemite credited deceased music vet J Dilla as executive producer, inciting beef from many within the rap community. He’s since collaborated with B.o.B. on “Paper Boy” and released a slew of mixtapes in 2010—including six in one day. But all that studio time didn’t keep him out of trouble, as the rapper was arrested in Ohio last year on assault charges for fighting a police officer. He also checked himself into New York Presbyterian Mental Hospital. Despite his stay in the crazy house, he’s working on his official debut, My Heart, via New Co Music, which will feature B.o.B’s assist.
