As a follow-up to yesterday’s Rhymefest-Charles Hamilton post I come to you with a couple videos of Chuck Ham doing his battle thang. He isn’t just stepping to Rhymefest, Supersonic is calling out all the best. And losing. On the one hand you could argue he is a glutton for punishment. On the other, the kid’s got a lot of guts. Here is some video of him taking a verbal licking from Serius Jones at SOB’s in New York. Ham gets a few good ones in too.
Here is another video of Hamilton, this time battling a Penn State student after a show. This is the sort of thing that impresses me about Hamilton: He challenges all champions and accepts all challengers.
Clearly Hamilton takes it easy on this goofy collegian. Internet hiphop-heads want to make it sound like this kid schooled Ham, but we know better. Right now Charles Hamilton is playing rap’s heel role. We are supposed to hate him. Love or hate, Charles just wants to get rich. Being the bad boy ain’t so bad, boy.
When it’s all said and done I hope battle rapping will be the true victor in the beef between Rhymefest and Charles Hamilton. Who watches these videos without wanting to unleash a freestyle tongue-lashing on a co-worker? Who isn’t organizing a lunchtime parking lot cipher right now?
I got myself worked up. I need to go spit hot fire at my Mexican neighbor. He doesn’t speak English so he won’t know what I’m saying, but I think he will enjoy the rhythmic rhyming.
