+ charles hamilton feat. crooked i "tears of fire" [audio]
sorry for the lack of posts, but for the last few days, i've been contemplating writing a post about the much maligned charles hamilton. mind you, i never bothered to listen to a hamilton track until his recently shelved album this perfect life made its rounds on the internet. like any mongerer, i downloaded his "debut" and gave it a listen. for the most part, it's incredibly boring. maybe i'm in that cudi zone now, but this perfect life seemed incredibly stale. i've changed my stance on kid cudi since my first listen and i can say that man on the moon is competing with veckatimest on my daily playlist, but i don't see myself changing my mind about hamilton. besides being unnecessarily full of himself, hamilton's character is boring. he likes pink. he likes sonic the hedgehog. he gets punched by females. he speaks to the dead. he gets incessantly hounded. that's it, right?
hahaha, you caught me. the only reason i bothered to bring up charles hamilton is because "tears of fire" sounds like an expertly crafted track from the heatmakerz. oh, you remember them? it's a shame that dipset disbanded and turned into jim jones and friends, skull candy kids or whatever, and cam'ron. "tears of fire" would have been the perfect backdrop for the original pink proponents. hamilton described "tears of fire" as "saying goodbye to the pain that holds one back". oh, that's deep, but who is going to save me from the pain of listening to crooked i rap? imagine if cam'ron got a hold of this track. let that thought simmer. it would be bonkers.
p.s. i didn't want to bother uploading the track because i had a feeling that nobody wanted to listen to it more than once.
