Hot Charlie Teams Up with Skeez with “AMAZING” Results

Hot Charlie recently teamed with fellow IA artist Skeez for the song “Amazing“, an uplifting and motivational anthem. “Amazing” serves as a “Thank You” to Hot Charlie’s many dedicated fans who have supported him and enjoyed his music throughout his career.  “Amazing” provides a visual journey from his home town Clinton, IA to current home Memphis, TN.  This is a symbolic journey as well, as Hot Charlie sets to release “Exodus“, his final album.  “Adding Skeez to this song was a no brainer” explains Hot Charlie.  “He’s from my hometown and his grind is something everyone should take notice of”.

Exodus” will be available April 24th through all online platforms.  Pre order begins April 10th on iTunes and “Amazing” will be exclusively available to pre order customers.

Exodus – The Final Album

Yes.  It is true.  “Exodus” will be the final album from Hot Charlie.  “Exodus” is Hot Charlie’s emotionally charged farewell to his diverse and dedicated fans.  In Hot Charlie’s words:

“With GREAT appreciation and respect, I humbly present to you: “Exodus“.  This will be my last album and mark the end of my career as a recording artist.  I am TRULY grateful for the years of support and dedication from all of my friends, fans, and supporters.  The passion that I once had for music has faded.  The climate in Rap/Hip Hop has changed and I no longer feel connected to the culture.  I have always tried my hardest to meet and surpass your expectations.  If I have failed, I apologize.  Now is the time for me to place the focus on my family and building a solid foundation for my children, so that they may have opportunities that were never afforded to me.” 

“Thank you for listening.  Thank you for helping me grow.  Thank you for allowing me to express myself and accepting me for who I am for all of these years.” 

-Hot Charlie

They May Hate Us, But So Do We.

Mike Brown.  Trayvon Martin.  Eric Garner. That is the short list.  There are countless others.  Are you angry for what happened to them?  Why?  I guess the better question is: “Why are you NOT mad about the murder of hundreds of black youths gunned down by our own people?”  Is it OK for us to kill each other?  Is murder by another race any worse than murder by our own?

It makes me sick to my stomach to think that the young men I mentioned earlier were killed in a senseless manner.  But it makes me even more ill that I lost a young cousin today to gun violence.  Another young black kid shot him.  Where are the protestors?  Where is the anger?  No rallies?

Excuse my language, but that’s bullshit.  If Mike Brown was gunned down by another black kid, we would have never heard his name.  That makes me very sad.  Yes, we should be outraged by what happened to him and all the other victims of police brutality and racial profiling.  But we should be equally if not MORE outraged by the everyday murder of our people, by our people, in our neighborhoods.  We quite literally cannot continue to live like this.

They may hate us, but it seems to me like we hate us even more.

Just a very small piece of my opinion.
