Charlie & The Mental Factory.By CEC
New up & coming producer Jim Jonsin has been catching a lot of flack lately for producing a track with underground rapper Charles Hamilton. Jim Jonsin comments on Charles personality and why he regrets giving the song to him. He also shed some light on who the track should have gone to, in his opinion.
“Iâ€™ll be honest,” Jonsin told VIBE. “I wasnâ€™t really into that song at all. I told him and his manager that. There was another song for him that wouldâ€™ve been much better, but he wanted that one. I love that beat, but I wouldnâ€™t put B.o.B on that record either.”
He also went on to speak on Hamilton’s personality, calling him “a little strange” and “all over the place,” before admitting he wanted the track to go to Young Jeezy or T.I. instead.
However in a new interview with The Boom Box, the Florida-based hit-maker re-tracked his remarks, noting that he felt his words were twisted, the Rebel Rock head said that he was honest in revealing that the song was originally intended for T.I. or Young Jeezy. “They asked me some loaded questions — how I felt about him as a person and I said I thought he was great. He’s a great writer, he’s got some good ideas. They asked me some questions about him going to [the mental institution] and if he was strange. Yeah, all of us are strange.” Jonsin reiterated that the music industry is filled with quirky individuals.
Hamilton has yet to publicly react to Jonsin’s initial statements to VIBE.
Sonic the Hamilton’s latest single is called ‘Gauchos,’ which hit the ‘Net in May 2010, was intended for a future Charles Hamilton project that is yet to surface. The pair recorded the tune in Miami earlier this year.
