Charles Hamilton Explains Mental Hospital Stay & Wheelchair on Channel Live

Just moments ago, Charles Hamilton showed up to the XXL offices, as expected, for our weekly UStream series, Channel Live, yet surprisingly he arrived in a wheelchair.

Hamilton, who has been in a wheelchair (detailed with pink wheels) since recently leaving a mental hospital, explained his debilitating condition.

“The reason I’m in a wheelchair is because I have sharp pains since I was in the hospital and a lil bit before,” he said. “I have sharp pains when I’m walking and literally I want to collapse but I can’t I have to continue to walk. So my right leg has been acting kinda funny. I still have a lil’ mobility, I can still stand up in the booth…but I’d rather the mobility of my legs be jeopardized than my musicality be jeopardized at any given point of time. “

As to why he was in a mental hospital, the 2009 XXL Freshman said, “Honestly I can say I was in the hospital for a broken heart.”

    sounds like he has MS. there are many symptoms from MS and one of them is losing your ability to walk. others are, vertigo, slurred speach, sharp pains in feet and arms, and numbness. there is no cure.
