The Hamiltonization Process

charles-hamiltonso, i was watching tv last night and i happened to catch some of “the last call with carson daly”.  the guest was an up and coming rapper by the name of charles hamilton.  after i watched his live performance of his song “loser” i was hooked.

this guy is nothing less than amazing.  his lyrics are wicked. finally a rapper who can actually…rap.

the hamiltonization process has been a 4-month process of introducing the 21-yr old rapper to the world.  he released a total of 8 mixtapes for free on his website (that’s right, free! go get em) from september to december of 08.  the process has helped him bring some shadows from his past to the forefront, like drug abuse and being homeless on the streets of new york.  the young artist is determined make a place for himself in a hip-hop world polluted with the likes of flo-ridas, soulja boys, and other studio-project rappers.

not only is he talented on the mic, but charles has a real appreciation for music. his influences include: eminem, n*e*r*d, jay-z, modest mouse, korn, dr. dre, the isley brothers, nine inch nails, and incubus  (to name a few)

but long story short.

i am definitely feeling senor charles hamilton. are you ready to be hamiltonized?

check out the interview from the carson daly show and the live rendition of “loser” just as i witnessed it

allow me to introduce myself…

doyoufeel1

so who am i?

you can call me THE king of feel.  that’s right, the one and only.

i’ve always wanted to jump into the world of blogging, but didn’t know how to start.  with some inspiration from my friend, i decided that there’s no better way to start than just sitting down and writing.

so that’s what i did. and here i am.  due to the spontaneity of this blog, i have not really settled on a particular focus of the content.  let’s just say that it’ll be a sort of potpourri of music, current events, fashion, and anything else that i damn well please write about. this will be a ride for all of us (cliche alert coming soon..), so lets buckle up and ride together shall we?

what i feel you are at liberty to know about THE king of feel:

  • i’m a college student
  • i’m currently living in san francisco (for not too long, hopefully)
  • i’m in my 20’s
  • dogs rock
  • cats do not
  • i hate flip-flops..with a passion
  • cheap = ugly

when i think of more, you’ll be the first to know.

you know who i’m feelin’?

MGMT!!!! (Em-Gee-Em-Tee)

The band is made up of two cats from brooklyn, Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden.  They’ve been all up in and around the UK and Australia, and I can’t believe the US is sleeping on these guys.  They’re awesome.  Fun little fact: MGMT is currently serving the President of France. Turns out, mr. pres ,  Nicolas Sarkozy  (doesn’t sounds very french to me), used MGMT’s song “kids” on numerous occasions without permission. MGMT isn’t too happy about this.

check out my favorite song from the boys from brooklyn “electric feel”. i have had many moments walking down the street listening to this, totally feelin it.  walking to the beat and mouthing the words like none other.  there was probably some air guitar involved as well when i was really feelin it.

enjoy!
