Society: Charles Hamilton Dons Cover of The Fader

0

Charles Hamilton, and artist Little Boots are on the cover of Fader magazine’s NOW issue. This is Charles’ second solo cover for what looks like a productive year for the emerging artist.

The feature article is dope, for lack of a better word. You can check out the entire article HERE.


Here’s a snippet:

Hamilton is naturally talkative, but doesn’t prattle; everything he says builds to a point he’s trying to make. His raps, on the other hand, can be far less formulaic. Hamilton is the king of improvised thought-streams and jubilant non sequiturs, rambling about Sega Genesis (constantly), his frustration with relationships (frequently) and how good a rapper he is (occasionally). “I don’t know how to read music, but I know how to sound music. So like, if I’m on beat, but not flowing, then I’m definitely easing in and out of the beat. I call it time mathematics, to be able to know how many words you can fit at a certain speed before your time is up,” he says. He paints himself as a contemplative but wisecracking everyman, navigating his young life’s already tumultuous course. “It’s hard when you ain’t got nothing, you dig, but [Hamilton] didn’t choose to sell crack and hustle and grab the gun,” says Jim Jones. “He did it a different way and got the same point across.”

I also stopped by the issue release party. Check out the pics below:
