“The Pink Lavalamp. My album. THE album. This album was recorded, mixed, written, produced…EVERYTHING during the worst period of my life. Ever. I was homeless, doped up, heartbroken, in love, poor, dirty, stinkin, angry, suicidal, happy, silly…but alive. And every song on there documents it all. Someone asked me to remix “Shinin,” and I was like no. “Shinin” was my suicide letter. I wrote it, recorded it, and was gonna leave it on the computer and go kill myself later that day.”
-Charles Hamilton

Everything I’ve done in this industry, whether it was based on outside speculation, peer pressure, or the outside feeling I was being extorted or the outside feeling I was buggin out, I remained true to me. I do it like I’ve done everything else in my life, it’s just like I’ve always been valedictorian material but I’ve made sure I was the class failure just to prove a point to administrators and the people who make money off students in the school. I’m the kid in the back of the class that will probably get beat up by all your favorite bullies and is smarter than any kid that’s ever stepped into the school but is failing.
