Sonic loving rapper, Hamilton: “I’m Not Crazy”

Sonic loving rapper, Hamilton: “I’m Not Crazy”

MTV caught up with The Sonic Stadium’s favorite rapper, Charles Hamilton, for an interview, where he professed his love of Sonic.  Although what he is saying may perplex you at times, he assures you that he is definitely not “crazy.”  He discusses why he chose Sonic the Hedgehog as his inspiration and goes into detail on the time he “woke up” as Sonic one day.  What I find interesting about the interview is when he breaks down his meaning of Sonic.

“Sonic” means “sound” and a hedgehog buries himself underground.  Thus, Charles buries himself into sound.  A novel concept that I certainly would have never thought of.

Anyway, Charles has been recently signed to Interscope records and I hope we can hear some more of his Sonic-inspired tracks in his next album.  Hint hint, Charles, you should rap over Lava Reef.
