Charles Hamilton Responds to Soulja Boy, “ I Wasn’t Tryna To Diss Him”

New Interscope signee, Charles Hamilton, took to his blog yesterday (12/09) to clarify comments he made about Soulja Boy, which has sparked the latest YouTube beef in the online rap community.

As XXL previously reported, the war of words began after Hamilton blamed Soulja Boy for people not taking his music seriously. Upon hearing Charles’ rant, the Atlanta rapper/producer posted a comical video online saying that Hamilton was just jealous.

“I don’t even know why I’m addressing this, nah this is why I’m addressing this, this doesn’t just goes out to Charles Hamilton the sonic man, not just him, this goes out to all the rappers out there,” Soulja Boy said. “You’ve been grinding so hard, blahzay blahzay, you’re getting into your record label meetings and all you hear is Soulja Boy, Soulja Boy, Soulja Boy. Goddamn. Soulja Boy got 4 million views on YouTube. Soulja Boy just did this, Soulja Boy just did that, and in the back of your head you like, ‘fuck Soulja Boy.’”

Now, the young Harlem MC wants to set the record straight. On his blog, the XXL Freshman, wrote that he was taken out of context and was speaking out of anger.

“I was called “the new Soulja Boy”… you don’t think that would piss you off if you were NOTHING like Soulja Boy,” he asked? “I wasn’t tryna diss him… I was talkin aggressively out of frustration…”

In related news Hamilton held an album release party/listening session, in New York City on Monday (12/8) for The Pink Lavalamp. As the 8th and final installment of what he calls “The Hamiltonization Process,” this album may be his most personal so far.

“If my time on this Earth is cut short because of this release, fine,” he wrote in a December 3 entry. “I was born to make this album and I chose to accept the mission of releasing it when I felt the time was right.”

On Monday night, a very passionate Hamilton shed a few tears when explaining “Music,” the first song on the album. The MC got emotional while explaining his battle with drugs, homelessness and his rocky relationship with his mom, who was there to support.

She escorted him off stage until he was ready to come back. The night wasn’t completely somber though as the rapper was all smiles during the preview of the “Brooklyn Girls” video. The clip, which features porn star Lacey Duvalle, drops next week.

The Pink Lavalamp can currently be found for free download online. –Jesse Gissen & Starrene Rhett

    • http://www.uptownempire.com Trouble

      Yeah hes lookin real nervous right now LOL !!

      Career gon be over b4 it starts. Besides why all these artists talkin about soulja boy especially someone like Hamilton who tries to sell himself as this die-hard video game hipster lyrical type, he should be focused on unicorns and giga pets.

  • Mutada al sader the king

    HAM lost

    Look at the fucking picture !!!!

    No really look at that shit…

    What the fuck man.. I’m 28 years old, Not a young dude but not an old head either.

    Would you ever, ever in your life allow your self to be filmed with all that pink on ? I mean this dude went over to the rack and specificly picked out the pink hat, the pink shirt and the pink ear phones. This aint some random acident, were he got caught in something he just threw on. They talk about the dumbing down of hip hop? What about the gay-ness in hip hop?

    Some of you fathers out there would you let your son leave the house with that shit on ? Would you pick out some pink clothes and take promo pictures in them ? Thats why motherfuckers aint fucking with this dude.

      Look @ this New York Pussy. If he knew Soulja Boy really was the Crip Boss in Bucchead district in Atlanta that Yung Vic has run outta spray paint! I was @ Stoccers strip club 3 months ago chilling w/ Laurence Fishburn when this fucchead comes in talking about Chiccen Noodle Soup w/a soda on the side! I removed the big booty bitch from Lawence Fishburns lap I was watching and smacced the shit outta Neyo who was standing not too far! Neyo turns and ask, “who the fucc did that!” I raised my hand which had a chiccen wing and said, “ME BITCH” Neyo then dashes as fast as he could to Jermain Dupree and hides behind him!

      • that nigga

        Please, stop G-UNOT KILLA from posting. Im gonna die from laughter. This nigga Is seriously one funny motherfucker.

  • amar

    the way i see it, at this point, this guy can just not even address this anymore or go buckwild and all young berg on us.

    The latter move might actually be smarter in the short run…but will make him…young-berg like.

  • Saavy

    Now in some regards you have a point my friend. He did do all of that for a reason, and it can make you do a double take – like woah, what’s with this dude. BUT the fact that the color pink is wrong to wear is just a social construct, the color pink means NOTHING but it’s connotations go a long way. Frankly it’s 2008 and it’s about breaking down barriers not putting them up. If you are confident with yourself, for example I love women and no one can tell me otherwise, than pink isn’t really a problem. We gotta stop this whole YOU CANT DO THAT type shit on here and focus on being more accepting. That sounds cliche but it’s true man. I don’t mess with Charles Hamilton but i respect him because he is speaking from the heart and making music because it’s his passion. Fuck Soulja Boy and it’s not the same hate Charles was talking about, when you turn ART into a business than FUCK YOU. No amount of success makes any difference in this case.

  • Phil

    Hilarious how you cats wanna judge and diss this cat, yet in the same breath you’re doing everything ANY new artist would want to the public to do:

    TALK TALK TALK TALK ABOUT HIM.

    Hate is the new love. The only way to truly, truly, truly HATE on anyone is to totally ignore them. But I guess y’all will never get that, lol. All this talk is almost guaranteed to get this cat at least 300,000 in sales. Shit, I know I’m sold now.

    Y’all saved this dude about $200,000 in marketing and promotion. What a world.

  • capcobra

    soulja boy is officially 3-0 now.

  • g-unit killa

    g-unot….u a liar….stop lyin

  • E20

    So let me get this str8, Charles Hamilton wears Sonic the Hedgehog Gear….Always wears pink…and was crying on stage? What part of the game is this? Hip Hop don’t need no more suckers. And if this guy is so dope why is he backing down from a battle with that light weight Soulja Kid?

  • Avenger XL

    I am all for emotion in hip-hop but this is a level of bitchassness that I have yet to see. breaking down in tears on stage please do you have enough testoserone to last the fucking course in this man’s world called hip-hop. Yes I want to see emotion in hip-hop because it adds to the authenticity. But this dude wound like a marsh mellow and I am not coming from some gangsta crazed mindstate.
