Charlamagne Tha God: Taking Radio By Storm Fearlessly

He went on to comment on an interview with Jay Z on the effect the death of Notorious BIG had on his career, wondering whether he would have been as successful with him alive.

But the interview that had everyone talking was the one with Kanye West who he referred to as Kanye Kardashian. Usually, Kanye West who is generally irritable around the press and takes offense at the slightest barb sat through the interview and even defended Charlamagne Tha God. He said that DJ Envy should allow him to talk because people want to hear him.

It was the morning of Kanye’s Concert at the Barclays Center and he sat through the interview squirming in his chair as Charlamagne went on to take shots at him and his music. He said that Kanyeś new album was not good and called him out on criticizing corporations then taking their endorsements and backing.

Charlamagne Tha God: All Publicity Is Good Publicity


Charlamagne Tha God is a radio host for the syndicated talkshow “The Breakfast Club” as well as a bestselling author. H

Charlamagne is known for his unconventional and controversial style. With the nickname “the Howard Stern of hip-hop”, Charlamagne seems to enjoy his niche as a smack-talker, or as he calls himself, a “truth teller.” He is vocal about issues in pop culture that he does not enjoy and has no qualms about calling out people or behavior he doesn’t like.

Sometimes his criticism results in him being fired back at by celebrities. As a major commentator on rap music, the form this takes is often Charlamagne The God’s presence in a dis track. He tends to let things roll off his back though, so he doesn’t have too many long-term feuds.

One recent dis track featuring mention of Charlamagne was from popular rapper Eminem, who released a surprise album called “Kamikaze” just before September. On the album there are two songs which mention Charlamagne in a negative context. View Related Info Here.

The initial incident that spawned these rhymes by Eminem was at the Cypher awards show on BET where Eminem was perceived to have used a homophobic slur toward one of his friends. Charlamagne Tha God called him out on this language and then seemed to think the incident was over, since this occurred back in January.

But nearly nine months later, Eminem released the disses. Charlamagne declined to respond with more insults, saying that he was happy he was famous enough for a big-name performer like Eminem to take the time to insult him. Citing the adage that all publicity is good publicity, Charlamagne actually complimented the album and reiterated his prior stance that he was a huge Eminem fan and considered the Detroit rapper to be on of the best lyricists in rap music.
