But rap star Dat Guy Ar recently hit out at Chaz, saying according to The Sun: “So you’re telling me ten years in prison, the hardship, the pain, the suffering, the risks I’ve had to take in my life – countless times I’ve been in the music industry for people like this go unnoticed. Are you taking f***?
“Are you telling me that a man from EastEnders with one dead leg can come on the talking road and trust him more than me?
“This guy probably appeared in a good household, Mom and Dad. He doesn’t have a bad story to tell.’

His second rap video Overdue garnered over 13,000 views less than a week after its release.
The black and white video, which is believed to have been filmed in London’s Regent’s Park, shows a different side of Charlie as he raps about his mates and ex-girlfriends.
The musician donned a padded jacket for the video before changing into a skinny jacket and clad his hands in Nike gloves.

Social media users shared their thoughts on the video, with one saying: “I can’t stop watching it”.
While another called the track “phenomenal” and told Charlie he has “such an incredible future”.
But others were less than impressed, saying: ‘Check him out he’s ghetto’.

The new venture in January 2019 came after a BBC spokesperson confirmed to MailOnline that Charlie was leaving the soap and wished him all the best for the future.
A source previously told the Daily Star: “It has been decided that this is the end of the road for Hunter. The producers don’t feel like the character has anywhere to go.’
“Boss are tight-lipped about exactly how Hunter is leaving Walford, but after shooting Ray on New Year’s Day, it promises to be dramatic.”
“Hunter will be on our screens for a while longer and we’re in for a lot more drama as he and his mother face the consequences of his actions.”
Despite his short time in EastEnders, Charlie has seen himself at the center of some big storylines, including the murder of his stepfather Ray Kelly.
In episodes airing over the New Year, Hunter shot a gangster to save his mother Mel Owen (Tamzin Outhwaite) from suffocation.
Past: Charlie’s character arrived in Walford with his mum, returning character Mel – played by Tamzin Outhwaite – in February 2018
