Jim Jonsin Calls Charles Hamilton ‘Strange’ — Say What!
In a recent interview, “Lollipop” producer Jim Jonsin said he wished he’d taken back the beat he gave “strange” rapper Charles Hamilton. “I find Charles Hamilton to be a little strange; he has his own vibe. He’s all over the place, but he’s a really good writer and is easy to get along with. I was going to play the actual track for T.I. or Jeezy. Nothing against what Charles did, but I wish that track went to someone else.” Ouch. [VIBE]
Here’s another Boy Jones quote about performing his late father Ol’ Dirty Bastard‘s group. “It’s me. It’s his son. A son is like a father, he always gotta do what his father does. He’s born in that type of way. It ain’t nothing else to it. I got the call from RZA [to tour with the Wu] when I was feeding my babies baby food. ‘You going on the tour.’ I’m running. I need that bread. Young Dirty Bastard raps hard, too. I ain’t doing it for free. I need money and I rap hard….My music is coming with an Ol’ natural style….Ol’ Dirty Bastard had the s–t. I’m just the new sperm of the generation. And you know I’m gonna have it. I’m born with it.” Wu-Tang is for the children. Puffy is good, but Wu-Tang is the best! [MTV]
