Now, a documentary produced by Red Bull TV attempts to answer the question, “What happened to Charles Hamilton?”

Directed by Fred Scott, Let it Play…Fault Lines is an intimate look at Hamilton’s life—outlining the ups and downs of his bumpy trajectory.

Ultimately, it takes shape as a tale of redemption as Charles seizes control of his life and makes moves to reignite his music career.

Rapper Charles Hamilton seemed to have it all after landing a million dollar record deal — but a combination of misfortune and circumstance ripped it away. This is his story of survival and redemption, both creatively and emotionally.
