Charlamagne Tha God has many roles in the entertainment community, but you might best recognize him from the hip-hop iHeartRadio morning show he co-hosts, The Breakfast Club. Charlamagne is a massive influence on social media and a featured television personality for Viacom. Not only does he co-host The Breakfast Club, but Charlamagne Tha God also has a hosting role on the podcast Brilliant Idiots.
He has a unique point of view and is not afraid to ask the tough questions when interviewing celebrities that come on to one of his various shows. Charlamagne Tha God drives the national dialogue every day when it comes to issues with the hip-hop community, racism, society, and politics. Charlamagne is also the executive producer of his own production company, CThaGod World LLC, and an accomplished author with three titles under his belt.
Recently, Charlamagne sat down with the host of the HBCU 468 podcast to discuss his second and most recent book titled, Shook One: Anxiety Playing Tricks On Me.
The first part of the title is a salute to Mobb Deep’s song, “Shook Ones,” and the second half is a nod to the Geto Boys track, “Mind Playing Tricks On Me.”
The biography type book is about Charlamagne Tha God’s struggles with anxiety and PTSD from events in his past. Various fights, attacks, and racism have led him to feel “Blackanoid,” a term he coined for being black and paranoid in America, which causes intense anxiety.
At the age of 39, Charlamagne decided it was time to see a therapist to work through his many fears and issues, many of which he acknowledges are irrational.
Readers who pick up his book will get a clear indication of his drive to change. Charlamagne Tha God has said in recent interviews that his narrative has completely changed and that he is working to grow as a man. Now that he is a devoted husband and father, Charlamagne says it is time for men to change their ways and straighten up in their relationships with females. Because of the #MeToo Movement, Charlamagne recognizes now more than ever, that men have a responsibility to treat women better than they have in the past.
