Charles Hamilton - Discography [FREE Download]

Charles Hamilton has led a career of many ups and downs. The young Harlem rapper gained much hype early on in High School and graced the cover of the XXL's 2009 Freshmen issue after signing a record deal with Interscope Records in 2008. He was well known to battle MCs and participated in cyphers with many up and coming lyricists including a young Rone and a pre-famous Kendrick Lamar, and established artists such as Kanye West, The Game and Slaughterhouse. Known for his ability to freestyle, penchant for rocking pink clothes and an affinity to Sonic the Hedgehog - it seemed that Hamilton had the skills and persona to go far. Unfortunately, despite a multitude of mixtape releases Charles was dropped from Interscope on September 19, 2009 before being able to release his official debut. He would then suffer many other setbacks such as self-imposed and court-ordered psychiatric treatment, being assaulted by his rapper girlfriend and being arrested for assaulting a police officer. In an interview in 2015 Hamilton would reveal that he suffered from bipolar disorder, depression and thoughts of suicide which was no doubt aggravated by the stress of the music industry and his addictions to Heroin and Psilocybin mushrooms.

Fortunately it seems that his career is once again in an upswing after handling all his personal demons. He is now signed to Republic Records and has even released a new single, "New York Raining" with Rita Ora that was featured on the soundtrack to the hit FOX TV show Empire. Hamilton’s return would come with a price however; as he announced that he will no longer be releasing any free music – not even to Youtube. In reaction to this Hamilton has posted what looks to be his entire discography for free download. This makes for a great purging of his past as well as a thank you to his fans, and a somewhat daunting introduction to newcomers. You can download the massive text file below which contains links to nearly every previous mixtape, EP, single and unreleased tracks that Charles Hamilton has created, and be on the lookout for his upcoming debut album:
