“I don’t hate, I tell the truth…”, said Charlamagne Tha God on The Breakfast Club, as he and his co-hosts recapped Eminem’s “Kamikaze” album.
Charlamagne Tha God, renowned radio host and author, is popular for not holding his tongue about his views on pop culture and social issues. But his recent remarks about rapper Eminem’s use of a homophobic slur towards another fellow rapper earned him to receive a not so honorable mention in one of his lines. To add insult to injury, Charlamagne Tha God did not particularly care for one of Eminem’s past album called “Revival”, which he deemed “wack’, causing the rapper to be further in uproar against the radio host.
The artist wrote in one of his songs, “The Ringer”:
“Charlamagne gonna hate anyway
Doesn’t matter what I say
Give me Donkey of the Day
What a way for 2018 to get underway”
In his latest interview with Esquire.com, Charlamagne Tha God took the comeback with a bit of flattery, but had a response to explain his position. “… Eminem has to understand when he calls Tyler that he’s not just throwing a shot at Tyler, he’s throwing a shot at millions of gay people around the globe. But I don’t think he cares.”
“I actually do think Kamikaze is good.”, he further states about the rapper’s newly released album.
Charlamagne has been termed the “Hip Hop Howard Stern” and is no stranger to backlash. His syndicated morning show, the Breakfast Club, is home to the most candid interviews with celebrities and public figures from all walks of life, where nothing is off limits. Some of his guests have not always taken his approach too well, notably comedian Monique. She later stated how “Charlamagne has no problem tearing down Black women…”, and felt “disrespected”.
Charlamagne Tha God is co-host to Andrew Schulz on the weekly podcast Brilliant Idiots and is a bestselling author to three books. His current work, Black Privilege, drew a lot of criticism from minorities, accusing him of downplaying the plight of his community. Go To This Page to learn more.
