Above: Raw video from Mickey Factz of him and Charles Hamilton puttin’ down some easy, off the top bars over “0 to 100”. Mickey flows effortlessly on this and of course, played to the crowd anticipating the headliner: Lupe Fiasco. Charles does his thing too so this is an easy, fun, no doubt watch.
Below: Lupe Fiasco and Mickey Factz, spotted on the latter’s IG, backstage as the Tetsuo & Youth Tour was in L.A. last night.
Charles Hamilton hit up Tim Westwood’s show for a 15 minute medley of freestyles and you’ll certainly note a favorite classic or 2 along the way. Watch up above!
ICYMI: “New York Raining” f/ Rita Ora [Music Video]
In the wee hours of the morning, we have the official visual to Charles Hamilton & Rita Ora’s big #Empire single. Diggin’ the typewriter beginning, the overall black and white aesthetic, and then the overall message and substance for the video as well. If Rita Ora’s eyes don’t reel you in too…
Charles Hamilton & Rita Ora are officially everywhere with their nice new single “New York Raining”. Here they are up above with a performance of the song on Late Night with Seth Meyers. I’m realizing that I actually really like Rita Ora on hooks after this one.
Speaking of her, here’s some bonus video of Ora and Action Bronson… with Rosenberg trying to play matchmaker?
Charles Hamilton made the Empire finale last night and performed his new single “New York Raining” with Rita Ora. While I can’t find video of it from the show, I did just discover this all-new piano version of just Hamilton and the keys. Very nice and it’s great to hear him back. Catch him amongst the bevy of artists at SXSW this week too.
BONUS: Charles Hamilton talks the Empire cameo + how the collab with Rita Ora came about
