Charles Hamilton's 19-minute freestyle on BBC Radio 1's "Fire In The Booth" is ridiculous.
BBC Radio 1 Xtra’s "Fire in the Booth," with its gregarious host Charlie Sloth, has become a good standard by which to measure rappers' freestyling chops. Logic came through last week for a freestyle, and he was solid. Charles Hamilton came through yesterday and straight up outclassed Logic. He rapped for 19 consecutive minutes, both going straight off the dome and fielding topics thrown his way by Sloth. He doesn't slip up once.
The Harlem rapper has been making the radio rounds recently, spitting a freestyle on both Sway in the Morning and The Cruz Show not to long ago. He released his whole discography for free on Friday, be sure to go give that a listen.
