After re-emerging on the rap scene after a three-year hiatus and silently battling bipolar disorder, Charles Hamilton is back with a new project. The Harlem native unveiled the cover art for his upcoming EP, The Black Box. No word on the release date but the tracklist includes tracks titled “Special,” “Clown,” “Let’s Roll” and ‘Down the Line,” according to HipHopDX.
Hamilton’s career kicked off in 2008 after the release of his first single “Brooklyn Girls.” He was then added to the XXL Freshman class of 2009 and released a slew of mixtapes. But after finding out he was dropped from Interscope Records by his girlfriend at the time, his life took a downward spiral as he was went in and out of psychiatric wards, was arrested a few times and was homeless. He revived his career earlier this year with the release of his Rita Ora-assisted single “New York Raining,” which he performed on an episode of Empire.
