Charlamagne Tha God Takes Aim At Lil Wayne’s New Album

The radio host and TV personality, Charlamagne Tha God seemed to be on a collision course with rapper Lil Wayne over the release of the album, “Tha Carter V.” Upon releasing his first new material in three years, Wayne was praised for the lyrics of the release, but Charlamagne Tha God was less than complimentary during his “The Breakfast Club” radio show.

Not only did the Charleston-born iHeart radio’s The Breakfast Club host take aim at the content of the album, but he also spent part of the show replicating the lyrical style of the rapper to the amusement of his fans.

Charlamagne Tha God is one of the most respected figures in hip-hop for the role he has played on the radio and as a member of many MTV-based TV shows.

Charlamagne came to prominence as one of the leading stars of the iHeart Radio brand, where he hosts a nationally-syndicated hip-hop show and has become an active social media influencer.

During the discussion about the “Tha Carter V” album, Charlamagne Tha God took most exception to the latest single released by Wayne and collaborator Travis Scott, “Let It Fly.” However, soon after appearing to criticize Lil Wayne’s album, Charlamagne Tha God took to Twitter to backtrack on some of the comments he made and support the album’s release. In his Twitter post, Charlamagne Tha God explained his comments as not being a criticism of Lil Wayne, who he believes “… was a certified goat ten years ago.” Click Here for more information.

Despite the fact he praised the career of Lil Wayne, Charlamagne Tha God went on to express his own view that “Tha Carter V” was not as good as earlier releases by the same artist or the album of the year. The post went on with a call for respect for each other’s views over the quality of the latest release from Lil Wayne.
