Social media influencer and Breakfast club Radio co-host Charlamagne Tha God found himself in a tight spot on Friday when he reacted to Eminem’s Kamikaze album. During his show on the radio, Charlamagne started by addressing a cipher by Eminem called Ringer. In the rap lines, Eminem calls out Charlamagne. The exact words read ‘Charlamagne gonna hate anyway doesn’t matter what I say’…The rap came after Charlamagne said Revival was terrible. In a bid to defend himself, he said Eminem too thought Revival was bad. He justified this claim by saying that is why he released the Kamikaze album. However, he added that being dissed by Eminem was actually a good thing and that he didn’t see it as a diss in the first place.
As the discussion on the songs in the album went on, the trio at 105.1 pointed out the Tyler the Creator line. According to Charlamagne Tha God, Eminem was disrespectful to the gay community as a whole. In an interview with esquire.com, Charlamagne said he doesn’t think Eminem cares about offending the LGBTQ community. He, however, made it clear that he was not specifically offended by the words used, owing to his upbringing.
Known at birth as Lenard Larry McKelvey, Charlamagne Tha God was born in 1978 at Charleston in South Carolina. As a teenager, McKelvey was arrested twice and was charged for possession with intent to distribute marijuana and cocaine. Shortly after that he witnessed a shooting and found himself in jail again. Before being on Breakfast Club, he had hosted alongside TV show host Wendy Williams.
Charlamagne said he didn’t have a problem with Eminem calling out President Trump. In fact, he loves it when white people use their privilege to fight injustice. He added that Eminem’s rant about Trump was a timely occurrence since everyone is talking about trump now. Find Additional Information Here
