The art of Hip Hop has come a long way since it’s beginnings at a park in the South Bronx with DJ Kool Herc in 1973. According to Nielson’s year-end report released in the early part of the year, Hip Hop surpassed Rock as the number one genre in music as eight out of ten of the most popular artists around the world currently are from the Hip Hop genre.
The lyrical, poetic verses intertwined with rhythmic beat patterns has become powerful. So, when one of the most iconic Hip Hop artists, Eminem releases a surprise album, it will certainly be talked about. When that album is laced with verbal assaults and disses to numerous people, it will have the Hip Hop culture and community at attention, ready to dissect every line. Eminem recently released a new album called “Kamikaze” which most people were unaware of,even the talking heads in the music industry were caught off guard.
One of those people mentioned on the album was Charlamagne Tha God, co-host of a nationally syndicated radio show called “The Breakfast Club” with Angela Yee and DJ Envy as well as a TV personality and an author.
He is the author of New York times bestsellers: Black Privilege, Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It and Shook One. Eminem mentioned Charlamagne Tha God on his latest album not once, but in two separate songs, “Ringer” and “Fall”. Eminem referenced to how Charlamagne Tha God will always be hating on him, stemming from Charlamagne Tha God not liking his previous album “Revival” and how he rhymed on the BET Hip Hop Awards freestyle cypher from a year ago. Some might be surprised to how Charlamagne responded to being on the album. On his show “The Breakfast Club” he made sure to tell everyone he really enjoyed the new album “Kamikaze” and that he doesn’t always hate on Eminem, he just didn’t like his previous album, “Revival”. He felt the album was forced, and wasn’t Eminem’s best work. Read This Article to learn more..
Charlamagne Tha God actually appreciated the fact Eminem took the time to address him in his music. He was quoted in an interview with Esquire saying, “I am just happy that I have gotten to the level where rappers who can actually rap say my name in records…Early in my career, I was only being dissed by Chingy. Now I’m being dissed by Eminem. Life is great.”
