Charles Hamilton Reemerges, Says "Maybe Jail Did Teach Me A Lesson"
Sonic the Hamilton speaks out for the first time since his release from jail in February.
The once prolific Charles Hamilton has reemerged after his incarceration, writing an open letter that apologizes to his parents and claims that he’s learned from his mistakes. In the letter, he explains that he has treated his mother unjustly and that he’s looking to turn over a new leaf.
“If there’s any statement I would like to make, I want to grossly apologize to my mother for my treatment of her over the last 7-9 years,” he said. “And if we rewind a bit, I owe her about 12 years worth of apologies. It’s not worthy of the acclaim, so I’m not going for it anymore. If there’s another song from me, it’s not coming from the place it was once being projected from. Maybe jail did teach me a lesson.”
Also apologizing to his father “for causing such a ruckus while visiting him,” Sonic the Hamilton explained that he “let smoke get the best of me,” and that he’s got two albums written as well as another LP.
“Written is 2 albums, and the final L Word. ‘My Heart’ is out of my hands (get it now?), and one of the albums has a really deep title... F*ck it. ‘Hamilton.’ ‘What the Hell’s Wrong With You?!’ ‘The L Word Four: She’s A Subtitle.’”
