Though Brooklyn native/Miami resident Charlie Hustle has built up an underground reputation with his various mixtapes and his Runners-produced buzz single, Get It (featuring Rick Ross and Kevin Cossom), he hopes to make his brand-new single (and DJBooth debut) his biggest hit yet. Despite the title Go Hard, the song’s tone is more seductive than aggressive: a beautiful woman catches Hustle’s eye, and he proceeds to offer her a better life if only she stays by his side (your typical rap ballad). While Rebel holds his own on the background vocals, the highlight is indisputably Timbaland protege Jim Beanz’ work behind the boards (yes, he’s found a way to mix xylophone with brass). Still, if there’s one thing urban radio loves, it’s a rap ballad; that said, Go Hard should have no problem doing just that on the charts. Charlie Hustle’s debut album has yet to receive a title or release date.
