Charles Hamilton Blames Soulja Boy

–for sucking at life.

“Yeah, alright. [Soulja Boy's] a smart kid. He used the online marketing thing, whatever whatever. He had like a billion views on YouTube. Had a bunch of Myspace friends. He’s smart for using the business. What the fuck does that have to do with him ruining the opportunity of people such as Cory Gunz, Mickey Factz, Kid Cudi to be accepted in the mainstream?! I really don’t wanna hear it, honestly. And I’m not trynna play Soulja Boy, but chill. It’s because of Soulja Boy that my day-to-day–the way I live, the Sonic the Hedgehog shit that’s dead real to me is considered a joke.” -Charles Hamilton, Shade 45 radio via Thisis50.com via WSHH

…and this is how we justify our thug.

“Don’t ever compare me to that nigga. First of all, he was rich before me. So he immediately took himself out of the bracket of comparison, number one. Number two: I been on my Sonic shit before the deal. Jimmy [Iovine] did not tell me, ‘Hey, we’re trying to work with Sonic. Let’s get this g–.’ No. I’ve developed my own shit over time. I’ve been the same me. I used to dress a lot weirder and then, all of a sudden, this word ‘hipster’ came out of nowhere.” -Charles Hamilton, Thisis50.com via WSHH

Damn. These are supposed to be the enlightened niggas.

I’ve blamed Soulja Boy Tellem for several things over the course of my blogging career. I’m convinced he’s the reason it’s harder for a nigga to catch a cab in New York. You can’t tell me Soulja Boy isn’t part of the reason the white lady at WalMart in Augusta, GA speaks reeeeally slowly to me–like I’d just gotten off the damn banana boat… again.

I refuse to co-sign Mr. Hamilton’s notion that fucking Soulja Boy is the reason no one wants to hear hipster rap. Shit. No one even wants to hear iSouljaBoy. How’s this his fault? Unless Mr. Boy is somewhere in the booth with Charles Hamilton when he lays those serendipitous anti-drug commercials he calls “hot 16s,” this whole shit is pretty fuckin baseless.

Considering how strong the haze be on 141st & Broadway, I wouldn’t be surprised if Charlie Boy were having spontaneous hallucinations of SB while trying to work.

Charles Hamilton: *rapping* Uptown alligator leathers in the 5th dimension of space and time/ with Dominican chicks bringing me pommegranate wine like*now speaking* WHAT THE FUCK?! *swatting violently*

Engineer: *through mic* You alright, Charles?

CH: Yoooooooo. Y’all don’t see this shit?! *still swatting*

EN: *looks at producer* The fuck you swattin your arms at?

CH: *running in circles* *flailing arms* FUCKIN SOULJA BOY! WHO LET ALL THESE SOULJA BOYS IN HERE!!!

Prodcuer: Oh, shit. He’s wiggin again. *sniffs bag of weed lying on empty seat* Oh, hell no. This that cropdusted shit from the Dominicans. I told you not to let him smoke this!

CH: *curled up in corner protecting face* Lacey, help meeeeeeeeee.

I don’t understand the meaning of this whole hipster vs. hopster beef when Charles Hamilton, Kid Cudi, Soulja Boy, Yung Berg, Mickey Factz and Cory Gunz all get their fruity hoodies from the same damn stores–I mean, “boutiques.”

Charlie Baltimore here seems more emotional now than a few years ago after learning he wasn’t getting the entire Encyclopedia Brown collection for Christmas. This is how angry MC Eiht sounded after Quik dropped “Dollarz + Sense.” How you gonna let Soulja Boy ether you without saying a word?

I guess DeAndre is a little nicer than we all give him credit for.

It’s hard to take an angry rant about Sonic The Hedgehog very seriously. This whole ordeal only reminds me of when I broke my little brother, Ricky Mexico’s high score on the first Sonic game. I figured out how to go “Super Sonic” first and he smashed the Genesis controller. That shit was dead real to us.

If Charles Hamilton loves Sonic so damn much we should call him “Tails.” If he grows his hair out like so many other rapsters do as their careers progress, we’ll call him “Knuckles.”

Let me lay some Echidna game down for you, Charlie. Hipsters’ whole deal is that they’re supposed to be quirky and smart. A smarter nigga would have known that the term “hipster” ain’t some new shit. It’s actually been around since before you were born. Actual hipsters actually despite the Starbucks your generation sips on.

“I been dressin weird for a long time” and “I been on my Sonic the Hedgehog shit” are desperate claims to the very shit you condemn SB for–lame-ass gimmicks. Enough people dig your off-kilter flow and persona whereas you shouldn’t resort to such bitchmade tactics. We Harlem niggas go get the fuck after it regardless what or how the nigga in the next lane is doing.

Except for the ones of us on dust and whatever. If such is the case, please disregard my advice and enjoy your PCP in PC peace.

[Blogger's Note: I booed myself so you don't have to.]

Hipster negro, please. Hamilton noted that he and Mr. Boy are labelmates. Maybe this hostility should be directed to the TIs that feed you, then. It would be they who choose to push his bathing ape over yours.

Questions? Comments? Requests? Soulja Boy made your daddy leave home? ron@ronmexicocity.com

P.S.: Cory Gunz ain’t even a freshman no more. I been hearin that nigga on mixtapes for like 10 years now. I wonder how old Peter is. It feels like Gunz, jr. been on-deck since “Deja Vu” was still warm.

Uptown, baby. Uptown, baby…

    “Considering how strong the haze be on 141st & Broadway.”

    Easy Mex. That’s some borderline dry snitching right there.

    I ain’t buyin’ Charles Hamilton or Minstrel Boy. But Charles got a point about certain trends taking hold and corporations milking that sh*t to the detriment of everything else. Remember crunk and snap. Now you got all this techno, electro, auto-tune sh*t goin’. It’s Universal Mind Control.

      dry snitching?

      sheeeeeeeit. that’s wal-mart. we all been there whether we wanted to or not.

    Stay independent! Fuck selling your soul for fame. All these new niggas need gimmicks for relevance. Thats why Rap A Lot still drops consistently. Because they don’t fuck with major label bullshit. When Scarface has an album to put out it drops. No fake arrests no sensational bullshit true fans go cop that shit. What happened to Rawkus, Loud Records, and all the other old school labels that made sure their artist came first? Why you think Saigon, Papoose, and Joell Ortiz haven’t dropped? Because they made the mistake of not taking ownership of their music and making sure people get it in the form of a complete album.

    • BIGNAT

      SAIGON IS DONE WITH RAP HE LOOKING FOR OTHER TO MAKE MONEY VIA ACTING. THE GRIND SEEMS TO HAVE THE YARDFATHER SAYING FUCK IT GOING USE MY LITTLE FAME TO GET A CHECK. PAPOOSE BEEN TRYING TO DROP THAT ALBUM GOING ON WHAT 7 YEARS NOW FACE IT THE DREAM IS DEAD. SOMETHING IS HOLDING IT BACK AND AFTER ALL THIS TIME THE MATERIAL MIGHT JUST BE OUTDATED. JOELL WAS HAVING NO RESPECT OVER THERE SO HE SAID FUCK IT THEY NOT GOING STAT QUO ME. THOSE OTHER LABELS I THINK LOUD IS DONE AND RAWKUS WAS DONE CAME BACK AND I THINK DONE AGAIN. RAP A LOT’S J PRINCE KEEPS THINGS MOVING 2 YEARS IN A ROW NEW SCARFACE ALBUMS BOTH DAMN NEAR CLASSIC

      Rap-A-Lot hasn’t been shit since the 90s!

  • blackcaesar

    Hey Mex, are echidnas and hedgehogs the same? Either way I like your approach…No rapster is safe Kanye, Berg, Trick Trick, SouljaBoy, now Charles Hamilton. Either rap or hold press conferences, but Ronnie Brasco(you can use that) says both won’t be tolerated.

    • blackcaesar

      Oh, don’t let me forget you calling out 50 cent for his erroneous blaspheme against god’s son…they all gonna get stuck for their respective __________(rap cliche)Negro Please!

  • amar

    i was just thinking to myself that these clowns are young and therefore this kinda idiotic sonic-related behavior is warranted.

    But tupac was about their age when he got in. Biggie, nas and t.i. weren’t much older. Shit, Mobb Deep were YOUNGER

    so i’m thinking: all the above rappers were talking about teenage shit: women, getting in trouble, people looking down on them. Meanwhile soulja boy and this other fag are discussing sonic the hedgehog and who wore ugly, bright clothing first?

    • Rah

      Exactly my dude.
      I be thinkin that too.
      Like damn these new dudes is phoney compared to the classic dudes when they were actually new. I’m not excited about none of them except for Wale a little bit.

  • tony grand$

    Wow, another adole$cent hip hop $lap boxin match. I’m not a fan of either, but c’mon, we all knew @ $ome point we had to kinda let SB get a lil bit of re$pect. Gue$$ it ju$t took a video game character to $how u$ the way. Poor Chuck Hammy mighta got on the “fuck $B” train a half $eme$ter too late. Yall got dude ga$$ed with the fre$hmen cover, now he finna go all “King Kong aint got nutn on me!” on nigga$……

      Maybe I’m buggin, but it seems like saying the stupidest shit is the new publicity stunt trend. Just in the last week or so, these entertainment niggas been sayin some uneccessary shit. Tf? I guess niggas got tired of beefin, & jus started spazin tf out! Yeah, that’s my main 08 hate, niggas talkin outta their assholes. Assholes! Hammy aint even get his Lupe Fiasco on yet, he bitchin like Kanye already. Damn, I tried to tell ppl that them pants cut off circulation to the brain, now look @ the reprecussions…….

  • Shawty J

    I wish people would stop blaming Soulja Boy for their problems. SB’s a moron, I know, I know, I get it, but so many people are getting at Soulja Boy is’ pretty cliche.

    “I ain’t selling no records, it’s “Minstrel Boy” Soulja Boy Tellem’s fault, he fucked up hip-hop!”

    Soon rappers are gonna be getting together in damn AA style meeting talking about how Soulja Boy ruined their career (which never jumped off in the first place)

    Charles Hamilton: Hi, I’m Charles!
    Group: Hi, Charles
    Charles Hamilton: Soulja Boy has ruined my career, we’re signed to the same label and these niggaz want me to rap like him and use the same producers. If it weren’t for him I’d be busting out my Sonic raps and ya’ll would be eating em up!

    Come on step your game up, hip-hoppers. Soulja Boy will always be a garbage ass garbage rapper and an all around buffoon, but I seriously doubt he’s the cause to all of your career woes.

    • tony grand$

      ^^^Lmmfao!!!!!

      AA style meeting……..

      “If it weren’t for him, I’d be bustin out my sonic raps and yall would be eatin em up!”

      I can see that shit hapnin! Niggas know what’s up, SB aint stoppin nobody from eatin. I think he trash, but he’s doin him, feel me? I couldn’t call myself a man if HE was my reason for huge failure.

      Now Soulja Boy bout to change his name, like lil bow wow & Immature did, to just Souljah, bangin on rap niggas like he doin sumn tuff. I didn’t think anybody could out bafoon that nincompoop. (Soulja) Boy, was I wrong.

    RON, SMMFH. HONESTLY, SOULJA BOY IS THE CANCER OF RAP. HE WILL BECOME A ONE HIT WONDER. HE IS IRRELEVANT TODAY. HIS ALBUM WILL FLOP.

    CHARLES HAMILTON’S MUSIC IS THE FUTURE. SOME OF HIS COMMENTS WERE LIKE SMH THO. KID CUDI WILL BECOME MAINSTREAM. WITH KANYE AND HIS OWN “SWAG,” HE WILL BE THE SHIT. LIKE I SAID, HES THE NEW AGE NAS. FUCK WHAT U HEARD.

    SOULJA BOY DID NOT ETHER HIM. HE JUST MADE HIMSELF LOOK LIKE A JACKASS.

    “I’ve blamed Soulja Boy Tellem for several things over the course of my blogging career. I’m convinced he’s the reason it’s harder for a nigga to catch a cab in New York.

    RON, STOP BEING A GRANDPA. EMBRACE THE YOUNG CATS WHO ARE KEEPING RAP ALIVE.

    • orangejuicejones

      You listen to Charles Hamilton? That ugly ass off-beat spontaneous flow? The wigged out subject matter? Sonic the mufuckin Hedgehog? I thought he even gave up on his video game career and joined the blue man group…Charles is straight garbage. If he’s the future of hip-hop its time for me to start dustin off my John Coltrane albums…..

  • Cinsere

    If I’ve realized one thing in the past 15 years of hip hop, it’s that everything happens in cycles. The “Soulja Boy” cycle sucks, yes, but it won’t be around forever, and in fact, I’d say it’s almost over. I mean, seriously, what has Soulja Boy done lately that’s had any impact whatsoever. Meanwhile, you got Kanye becoming more and more “hipster”, which means that if it weren’t for his rise in popularity, all these “hipster” rappers wouldn’t even have a blog to bitch on. I mean, they would, but nobody would care, and XXL certainly wouldn’t be covering this shit. Dog Hog, 5 years ago niggaz would be laughing you back into your Urban Outfitters sanctuary. But now you have a lane because it was created for you. So don’t get mad that you have to grind so hard, when you have more opportunities and platforms now than you did 5 years ago. Lame-ass.
