Charles Hamilton: Every Charles Hamilton Ex-Girlfriend’s Worse Nightmare
My old earth once told me that the best way to get back at an ex-girlfriend is to be more successful than her next or current boyfriend. Well, damn near every girl I’ve dated has gone on to date hoodrich drug dealers. Meanwhile I’m still a broke hip-hop writer. Top of the world, ma! Anyone detect the sarcasm in that last line?
But Charles Hamilton is going about his ex-girlfriend business in a whole other way. Charles becomes his exes’ nightmare not through the success he’s been having in the hip-hop game, but by putting them on blast for a whole mixtape. And judging from what he said on these songs, he’s met quite a few sluts. And apparently he didn’t discriminate. From girls who were “kinda chubby with glasses” to “a fashion chick.” Men do need variety, that’s for sure. “Esperanza, Keishana and Keana” alone show this man has indulged in women from different cultures. Can’t be mad at that.
Rhyming about women like “Shantel” who was dating a rat which in turn was “numbing my heart,” to “Simone” who was “Reading Bossip/all the time that you had going through my emails looking for females sending their details/what happened to you? Who are these males, huh?” All these females made some kind of impact on his life and view of love in relationships.
But it was only with “Toya” that he went as far as to speak on how much she meant to him after the song was over. Buying him outfits and giving him $5 to cop a nickel bag of trees when she didn’t have enough money to get to work. Now to me, someone like that sounds like a keeper. I once dated a chick so stingy she wouldn’t give me a pull off her cancer stick cause “each one costs a quarter!” She never got passed 9th grade but all of a sudden she turned into a mathematician. Bum bitch. Charles continued to kept it 100 with “Toya” and said, “I look like a nerd/but word/I ain’t concerned/cause I’m proud as fur/to be riding with the loudest bird/she held a nigga down in spite a nigga cheatin’/nigga beatin’ all the chicks he been dreamin’ bout skeetin’.”
CH went 3 for 3 with his mixtapes. Each had a different sound to it and showcased him as more than an MC. He’s an artist. Part of the genius to this mixtape was that each title was a female’s name (his exes apparently) and he took the time to talk about each one and give a beginning and an end to each situation. Not only did he give a good idea on what kind of person each woman was by describing their characteristics and actions, but he did it in a form where all men can relate to each relationship one way or another and we end up taking his side. The production was more melodic and smooth than they were on his BIA project. The beats created an atmosphere in itself that allowed him to spew his feelings along with the words he was rapping. It was well executed music.
I wonder how these women will take this or if they’ll even respond via vlogs or blogs. You know what they say, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Good thing for Charles Hamilton he doesn’t have any beef with Pimpin’ Curly.-The Infamous O
