It was originally called, “Moncks Corner” after a small town in South Carolina where Charlamagne Tha God grew up and took his first steps as a rapper and radio host. Gaining an internship with a radio station in Charleston, South Carolina was the first step on the ladder to success following his decision to step back from the tough life he had lived from being a child.

Charlamagne Tha God Shares His Thoughts On Being Referenced In Songs By Eminem

 

Author and radio legend Charlamagne Tha God recently shared his thoughts about rap music and the singer/songwriter Eminem in an article he wrote. Rap music is very difficult to write, he said, as the songwriter needs to make it personal, take the right angle, make sure every thought is expressed, and then practice it over and over until it’s polished. For this reason, when a new album comes out fans are pretty excited and looking forward to interpreting each track.

Rap music star Eminem released a new album, Kamikaze, this fall. On two songs it sounds like he is attacking Charlamagne Tha God who had criticized him for using a Homophobic Slur against another rapper. Some people feel that Eminem mostly used this word just to get additional notoriety and draw attention to himself and his new album

One of the lyrics in question is, “Charlamagne gonna hate anyway, doesn’t matter what I say”. However, Charlamagne Tha God didn’t take either of the references to him as an insult. He figured that Eminem had just been stewing for months after he said that Eminem needed to tone down his language at an awards show.

Charlamagne Tha God said he thought it was great to be immortalized on an album.

He was proud that he has achieved enough fame that rappers feel inclined to reference him so he’s good with everything. He said several years ago it was only rappers like Chingy who tried to insult him so he feels he’s gone up in the world. Find Related Information Here.

 

Age 40, Charlamagne is a media personality who, in addition to radio, also works on television. He has written two popular books, the latest of which he reveals his struggles with mental health issues.

Charlamagne Tha God Cancels His Mental Health Conversation With Kanye West

 

Charlamagne Tha God was set to host a “TimesTalk” with famed rapper Kanye West for the New York Times about mental illness in the black community in order to destigmatize the issue among contributors of Black culture.

In recent news Kanye West has had a lot of issues in the eyes of Black media due to his controversial political allegiance to President Donald Trump. Some fans believe his alignment with the current president is a result of his mental illness. West was diagnosed with mental illness at the beginning of the year. Although he believes his diagnosis was made in error, West has spoken publicly about his ongoing struggle with mental health.

Because of West’s configuration with the President and the misalignment with the Black community that his political views have caused, Charlamagne Tha God feels as if having this conversation with Kanye at the moment will only distract the public from the important elements of the conversation and only highlight the antics of Kanye West, who most believe are using his political alliance with Trump as a tool to gain publicity or attention.

This wouldn’t be Kanye’s first time using controversy to gain attention from the public. Before the release of his most recent album, West was photographed with an infamously unpopular “Make America Great Again” hat before proclaiming American chattel slavery was a choice.

Charlamagne The God is set on making sure the importance of his conversation about mental health is not diluted by clouded judgments of the audience who may have reasonable bias because of Kanye’s recent behavior. Mental Health is a topic that Charlamagne Tha God takes very seriously and he is focused of ridding society of the stigma placed on the conversation.

When announcing that he is canceling the talk with Kanye, The Breakfast Club host says that having that conversation with Kanye right now would only distract the audience from the point of the conversation, which is to destigmatize the idea of mental wellness in the black community.
