After reports that Charles Hamilton was dropped from Interscope Records last month hit the Internet, Hamilton associate B.o.B. has offered the New York emcee some career tips.
From B.o.B.'s perspective, Hamilton will likely use his negative press as of late to create impressive music.
"You know, he actually gave some good advice on ['Change Gon' Come]," B.o.B. said about their past collaboration. "He was like, 'How do you change what was written/Don't pull into mind what they mention,' and I would tell him that. I would just tell him to continue to be positive because positivity can override anything -- even the worse sh*t that happened -- even death. You know positivity is positive. You could make positive out of anything. Actually, when you think about the type of inspiration it takes to make a song, he's in a great position. Because as an artist, when everything is going great, then you're just on cruises, and you're on vacation, and you don't want to make a song. You just want to relax. It's always when something bad happens, that's when you're inspired. I definitely wouldn't be surprised to see Charles Hamilton coming out bangin'. [laughs]" (Hip Hop Game)
While a confirmation from Hamilton has yet to emerge, an online report announced his departure from Interscope last month.

During his time on the label, Hamilton received negative attention after sparking a short-lived rap beef with Soulja Boy, dissing the emcee for his image .
"Gotta couple cartoon characters, you know, got my name in their mouth -- the boy about to start crying in the interview," Soulja Boy said in a video, with a laugh last year. "This just not goes out to Charles Hamilton, the Sonic Man, this not him, this goes out to all the rappers out there man...I'd rather take the positive route and not get into beef...It's not my fault -- that whatever you got going on ain't going right, you know what I'm saying? You gonna have to go back to the drawing board, ya feel me, grab the magic marker, 'X' out the Sonic and you might wanna just f*ck with Mario." (YouTube)
He also made headlines after footage of him being punched by a female landed online earlier this year.
"[Soulja Boy] was beefing with Charles Hamilton, I seen a girl knock this n*gga the f*ck out," 50 Cent said in an interview earlier this year. "He lucky he ain't hit her back. He woulda hit her and got his a** beat. They woulda put that n*gga through the meat grinder. You don't [come back from that.] You say, 'Look, I'm a gentleman.' You play the gentleman role after that because if he would have hit dude's daughter, n*ggas woulda, ah man." (Radio Planet TV)
