Charles Hamilton has displayed his versatility in his rhyming, production, and mixtapes. As the Hamiltization process continues, he continues with this mixtape lyrically explaining his travels as a bump in a spiritual relationship with a women in a penthouse. Eventually invited upstairs, he raps about how he may or may not get her detailing a gripping love story over 12 simple songs.
The mixtape is powerful in ways but failed to hold my attention in small, minuscule avenues. With this in mind, the journey that was Charles spoon-listened to me was a smooth one; not a lyrical masterpiece but clearly a mixtape which can be remembered. Each song had its individual flair to it clearly discussing the story in a way that only Charles could tell it. I was excited to listen to "Neverland" which had a great chorus to offset Charles' sub par singing capabilities. Getting into "You Too" really discussed the backdrop to some of Charles songs. Being a very expressive, touching, and gripping song portraying a tough life as a child. It also culminates towards the end with "In Case I Actually Get Her" and the vice versa.
The tape's beats, in my opinion, clearly exceed his rapping. However, I will say some times I felt turned off by the beats. That is a personal taste problem though.
I will say that the tape is worth the download for any rap fan.
Definitely for the rapping, but at least for the Journey.
