Catching up with Charles Hamilton

What has Sonic enthusiast and budding superstar, Charles the Hamilton, been up to lately?  Well, he recently released the first in a series of mixtapes, entitled “Death of a Mixtape Rapper.”  These eight mixtape releases will lead up to his label debut in 2009.  In light of this release, DJ Booth caught an interview with the 20-year old up-and-coming rapper where he discusses his musical inspirations, the fallout with his mother, and his continuing adoration of the blue blur.  At the end of the interview, DJ Booth asks Hamilton to freestyle, which he promptly does with incredible flow.
