Now when I first moved to Houston the one radio station I found pleasure in is 93.7 The Beat with The Breakfast Club. The radio personalities featured on The Breakfast Club include Angela Yee, Charlamagne Tha God, and DJ Envy.
So let's fast forward 3 years later and one of my favorites, Charlamagne, puts a book out and it is a must get for me. A couple of weeks ago CThaGod aka Charlamagne did a book signing at Barnes and Noble near my home. I had other engagements that I had to attend therefore I had an early exit and didn't get to personally meet C. Thank goodness my cousin didn't mind standing in my place and getting the book autographed for me.
But anyways - after reading the book and enjoying it immensely, I have to say if you haven't picked up your copy - GO DO IT TODAY! Here is my review - enjoy.
Charlamagne Tha God will give you nothing but the truth and beyond in his new book that I'm sure will become a cult classic. In the future, I expect for this book to be hid behind the counter at Barnes and Noble like 48 Laws of Power or The Art of War due to its appeal to leave you wide open to doing more and reaching your true potential.
The honest quest to be better every day and to realize that the unpredictable shit happenings will eventually align your path to success (don't forget to add in faith and persistence) is what this book is all about. From growing up on the dirt roads of a trailer park in Moncks Corner as a hopeless-nerd-wanna-be-thug to finding his place in hip-hop royalty by using his blunt philosophies, CThaGod will have you in his grips as he explains how he came from being nothing to the undisputed king of keeping it 100. Charlamagne vividly orchestrates his life through the art of storytelling like his rap idol Rakim by leaving no stone unturned. From his drug selling lifestyle to being in jail with his father and working for free while sleeping in Wendy Williams' purple room, you will be in his clutch. Charlemagne opens up about his defeats (getting a beatdown and jumped), infidelity, the losing of friends and several terminations to being the man in the making (if not already there) for his own media empire. This book is a must read and nothing less of the realest reality that every person needs to understand that we all have untapped privilege within - black, white or indifferent.
