I have made available Charles’ first rap album on his soundcloud channel. Fortunately, I was able to get into his account.
For a long time it was on iTunes and I discovered it was no longer. Probably due to lagging sales after his death. I added it to SoundCloud because of the creative commons licensing.
The American Dream, his first single was available on Amazon but is now on SoundCloud.
I Don’t Wanna be a Patient, the single of an album he was working on when he died by suicide is still on iTunes and Amazon for 99 cents.
Discovered a new song today I’d never heard, Angel Dust. Not so much a “mom” song but anything new is gold.
He would hand out his CDs and then people would come back and tell him how much they loved the album. He’d be beaming. His music is dark. It reflects how he felt and how he suffered.
I included many of his unpublished lyrics in every other chapter of my first book, Diary of a Broken Mind, to illustrate how he saw our family’s story unfold through his point of view.
