Telopath is a Jamaican born rapper living in Queens New York.
Jamaican rapper/songwriter, David Hamilton aka Telopath, remains inspired by and passionate about music filling his work with images, both precise and poetic, of his experiences both in Jamaica and New York. Even though he has been involved in music for most of his life, Telopath digs even deeper with each song into the depths of human nature, illuminating the good, the bad and the real. He transforms the turbulence of his own life, as well as his concerns about the hair-trigger state of the world at large, into a collection of rhymes distinguished as much by their emotional urgency as by their musical inventiveness. Lyrically, Telopath draws more from his personal experiences than anything else and aims to convey the feeling, if not the specific circumstances, of intense periods in which anyone undergoing a life of struggle, hurt and hope can relate. Music became a serious outlet at the age of 13 for Telopath, who decided to use his restless energy to write material that mirrors the dramatically swinging moods that are a part of human nature. Needing to say something truthful, Telopath decided to first be true to himself. As a Jamaican, his first instinct was to be apart of the local Dance Hall scene. He realised however, that this would not accurately depict what he wanted his music to be about and so decided to remain faithful to his true love - hip hop. As a result of this pursuit, Telopath became acquainted in 2005 with world-renowned producer/engineer David Kennedy, who had with top artistes such as Mary J. Blige, Rakim, Biggy Smalls and Mos Def previously. Together they created 'What's Life?', to be released on Kennedy's indie label, Ntelek Entertainment in 2007. While performing at various underground shows and working with Kennedy in Jamaica, Telopath continued to push himself, becoming a one-man team of marketing, pr and booking agents. It was a result of this that, through his myspace page, he got his first invitation abroad to perform at Clarke University in Boston and managed to successfully gain supporters from this brief stint in Massachusetts, USA. Upon returning to Jamaica, he created 'Black Prophets', an organization of locally talented Jamaicans also interested in the rap game and started to aggressively build his fan base through increased performances at live music shows staged in the island's capital such as Mystic Urchin's 'Tuesday Night Live' and Simple Chaos Entertainments's 'Live Up On The Roof'. Quickly garnering success as one of Jamaica's most innovative rappers, Telopath went on to shoot his first video for the single "Real Yaadman", in which he attempted to portray that even though he was breaking down stereotypical barriers, he was no less a Jamaican for wanting to pursue hip hop in a country loyal to Dance Hall. The song was immediately succesful and got him share plays and a interview at Hype Tv's 'Up and Live' in January 2008, and particulary successful on the international scene in places like Germany where the singles beat was produced by Jens Schlager and was even place on a mixtape called 'Myspace Dreams' feat Rick Ross, T-Pain etc by Dj Zikky who both decide to promote him fulltime but unfortunately Dj Zikky would pass months later changing his whole mindstate. Telopath is now taking the the oppurtunity to learn and grow in the business of music and has officially migrated to the US where he works at being a integral part of the new era of Hip Hop. He continues to perform, mainly in New York all the way to Florida and has taken third place in a New York competion by 50 mics now known as Top Mics sponsored by the Source Magazine and did state to state shows for about 6 months before taking time to go back to the place he calls home- Jamaica to relax and also do some new singles. Currently he's back in the states and as you see. Serious. Entertaining. educational. Telopath is certainly a force to be reckoned with, displaying a style and versatility that is not easily forgotten.
