Lenard Larry McKelvey, also professionally known as Charlamagne Tha God, is an American radio presenter and television personality. Along with his successful radio, television, and writing career, Charlamagne is also well known to speak his mind freely; even if that means stirring up some controversy.
Born on June 29 1978, Charlamagne is a co-host for the nationally renowned radio talk show, The Breakfast Club with DJ Envy and Angela Yee. This trio have interviewed some of the most iconic stars in the industry, all speaking their mind freely with no shame. This is especially true for one Charlamagne, who recently shared his thoughts about famous American rapper Eminem, who released a surprise album titled “Kamikaze“, released on August 31, 2018.
During that Friday morning’s show, The Breakfast Club crew were discussing what they thought about this surprise album by Eminem. Charlamagne Tha God states how he actually likes the album, and is “honored” to be dissed by such a prominent rapper in Eminem. He also goes on to say that his previous album titled, Revival, was “whack”, and that Eminem knows it was “whack”, which is why he came out with this new surprise album.
Charlamagne Tha God later tells Esquire.com exclusively, “It’s always cool when you get immortalized on records. I am just happy that I have gotten to the level where rappers who can actually rap say my name in records, regardless if it’s a diss or not. Early in my career, I was only being dissed by Chingy. Now I’m being dissed by Eminem. Life is great”.
Earlier in Charlamagne’s career, he appeared on the Wendy Williams Show, which many claimed to upstart his success in the media world. As he quickly rose to become one of today’s most compelling and iconic media personalities, his unique and exasperating point of views have gotten this radio personality a lot of criticism. There were times when listeners have called for the radio show to be boycotted or cancelled after hearing his thoughts regarding transgender women. Many people may not agree with his way of thinking, however, it is difficult to deny his adventurous road to success. Get Additional Information Here.
