With all of the music releases dropping in rap today, there will be plenty of projects to carry fans into the New Year and beyond. While most are raving over J. Cole's new 4 Your Eyez Only album, there is still a long list of artists that took advantage of a December 9 release date to end the 4th quarter strong.

Along with Cole, as well as Post Malone, Tech N9ne, Ab-Soul, and The Dream, Charles Hamilton has released his long-awaited debut album to Apple Music, which is titled Hamilton, Charles. The Harlem MC has been through countless trials and tribulations in the industry over the years, which has greatly delayed him to give fans a proper debut album, but it's finally here for his loyal supporters to listen to.

After disappearing from the public for years, and being on and off with his song releases, Hamilton is back and better than ever with this new 14-track release. The album comes as a follow up to his Black Box EP that he dropped last year, and is accompanying a new documentary shot by RedBull TV, which follows his recording process and recovery from past mental health issues over the last year.

It's been a long time coming from Charles Hamilton and his debut project, but the wait is finally over. Take a listen to his new album below, and let us know your thoughts.
