Yup he said he's got at least 2 records with Em, and 1 is classic.  And none appears on his album.

Some more exciting news:

What Jimmy told me was to do my thing, and use the business to my advantage.

Interscope is used to a certain sound, as evidenced through the latest Em release ("Relapse"). The crystal clear, uncompressed sound, usually mastered by Dr. Dre (or Ron Fair) is what makes an Interscope album an Interscope album. Content and production wise, they LOVE "This Perfect Life" (much to the dismay of the email).

As far as sound quality, they don't understand it.

"This Perfect Life" was professionally mixed, but in the mastering, I did things a little bit different. Each song was ran into vinyl, before digitally remastering each vinyl-ly mastered song, before mastering the album together as a whole. So you hear actual dust from the record.

So it sounds a lot older than it really is.

Quite literally, you hear the needle drop on the record.

The point of me doing that is, the mainstream way of presenting music is getting old. Yeah I know, "Charles this mix sounds like crap." That's kinda the point. You have to LISTEN. The points I bring up with this album on every song go beyond the 30 second sound-byte of a ringtone. There are solutions to problems that we all face that need to be heard.

Or is that not what an artist is supposed to do?

Mind you, about 97% of all online "marketing" was handled by ME. Yes, management set up interviews, and a few admin "pulled some strings" to get me "some good opportunities." But as far as blogging, Twitter, Facebook and interacting with online journalists such as Illseed, Karen Civil, Miss Info, 2DopeBoyz, Nah Right, OnSmash, and several other popular urban sites?

Charles Hamilton.

Now if that's not going beyond the call of duty for a major label artist, then maybe there needs to be some BETTER protocol as to what an artist's requirements are.

Jimmy's concern is how a free download can translate into dollars and cents. Which in esSENCE, makes perfect SENSE. SINCE that is the concern, the actual concept of an album dropping for free as promoted by a major label is enough for mainstream attention, upon Interscope pressing "the go button" on media paying attention to me.

Until such time, I am a figment of your subconscious mind. A novelty being, only heard on the surface via "Brooklyn Girls".

He should release both versions or set one up for free download and when you buy the album you get the other.
Cool breeze; I'm hopping out of new Beams
My outfit ran me a few G's but none of that will matter if you leave
I used to be an Adam with two Eves and shawtys automatically do me
Excuse me, all that happened before you doesn't matter
I'm a vision of the future climbing the success ladder
Recline, in the mean time, twenty three shine, diamond bling blind as I rewind

It's the same album, just the one in stores will come with a bonus DVD.  Which will no doubt be ripped and uploaded on the internet, lol.

He said it got mastered then he did some shit to get a vinyl sound to it.  By versions I mean non-vinyl mastered and then vinyl mastered.

I totally forgot the date came and passed.  Charles got merked out by the Detroit faithful?  Maybe they decided it was a horrible idea to release the album for free and on the internet.  rofl.

Yeah apparently it got pushed back until August.Probably to let some of the negative press cool off.I like dudes music but he keeps digging himself into a hole.If he would just shut up and let his music speak for himself he would be a lot further in his career

The physical release was slated for August so I guess they scrapped the digital release idea..

I agree, but at the same time "bad press is still press".  But none of that matters since he's gone M.I.A. all on his self..

According to His Blog which was finally updated for the first time in almost a month, a close friend of his states he is well and "going through a plethora of changes". This is the full entry.

Dear Concerned Fans,

Charles has been going through a plethora of changes both professionally and personally. He's watching and listening in the midst of learning how to smile again though, and we do ask for your patience and understanding during this time. He'll be back with new music and content as soon as possible. You are all loved and much appreciated. Thank you for all of your comments and overwhelming support.

"Workinonit! You know..."

xoxo,
Simone

lol Wow, August 25th still a date?

I guess he'll get a buzz returning after leaving the internet, since he had such an online presence. 

Career advice, or personal problems...
