Hip-Hop Wired Presents: A Tribute To Coppin’ Pleas
Charles Hamilton and The City Of Detroit
Walking punching bag, Charles Hamilton once wasn’t always the butt of everyone’s jokes. The once promising MC had a huge record deal and the hip-hop world eating out the palm of his hands until this fateful moment. When he was releasing his highly anticipated album and saying it was produced by J. Dilla, and it wasn’t, Mr. Hamilton found out just how cold in the D it can get. After Ma Dukes and Illa J all claimed to not even know the kid, the entire city of Detroit was ready to tear the poor kids head off. Since then, plenty of apologies were made but he hasn’t recovered since. Oh, and then this happened.
