Charles Hamilton Is BACK With A Record Deal & A Rita Ora-Assisted Single

Charles Hamilton seemed like he had quite the promising career in 2008 and 2009, with a smash single “Brooklyn Girls,” a spot on the XXL Freshman cover and more. Unfortunately, drama and erratic behavior eventually overshadowed the music, and Charles faded into anonymity and we didn’t really hear from him again…until now! Complex reports that the Harlem rapper has signed a deal with Republic Records, and is prepping a Rita Ora-assisted single that will debut on the season finale of the hit show Empire next month. Even sooner than that, though, Charles will be performing new music at The Sayers Club in L.A. tonight! (As for the major Rita Ora assist, he’s being managed by the same company that represents both Rita and Iggy Azalea, Turn First.) “Charles is back and the excitement for his return is immeasurable,” said Monte Lipman, co-founder and chief executive of Republic Records. “The enthusiasm in the marketplace is overwhelming and we are thrilled to participate in the evolution of his career.” Charles Hamilton back?
