Tag: Charlamagne Tha God
That’s a pretty bold statement from two of hip hop’s staunchest critics. Budden recently left his morning show at Complex, Everyday Struggle, over some internal conflicts and now its seems he is eyeing his next gig in an effort to prove that he doesn’t need the show to stay in the midst of hip hop culture. The rapper turned podcaster recently took part in Revolt’s year-end recap with Charlamagne Tha God and they had some interesting take on the best and the worst of hip hop in 2017.
One of the hot topic issue they spoke about is the so called 2017 trash list. The full list comprises of five rappers that the two media personalities think are whack and these are Lil Yachty, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, Post Malone, and Frank Ocean. They took the time to clarify why they placed each of these artists on the list while making it clear that they don’t have anything against Nicki.
“I can’t remember the last time I saw a superstar of Nicki’s caliber put out three records at the same time, and by the way that ‘No Fraids’ record had the iHeartRadio stimulus package that you going to play every hour on the hour on every urban station throughout the country, she had Wayne and Drake on the record and that record didn’t grow bro,” Charlamagne said. “She had another record with Wayne and that didn’t go anywhere and she had a third record and I don’t even know what happened to that sh*t.”
“Nicki Minaj is a superstar and you cannot have 90 followers and put out three records and non of them catch,” Joe Budden said. The Breakfast Club host then explains why Lil Yachty is the poster child for trash artists of 2017.
Chris Brown has stepped forward to apologize to Charlamagne Tha God and The Breakfast Club over a failed interview this morning.
Brown has been making the promotional rounds this week ahead of the release of his new album Heartbreak on a Full Moon, due on October 31st. Breezy don’t normally do a lot of interviews but this week he has been everywhere and all of his interviews are interesting. So far this week he turned up for all of his interviews, but this morning was different, he bailed on an interview with Charlamgane Tha God, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy on The Breakfast Club.
In a lengthy post on Instagram, Chris Brown apologize to the show and said that he will personally make things up. As for the reason for bailing, he said that he was hoarse from a long studio session the day before plus he has a pop-up show later on today (Wednesday October 25th). “Breakfast club, I Love yall, I apologize for not coming to the show,” he wrote. “Pop-up show today and I was hoarse as sh*t from studio, I’ll call personally so we can peace it up. love.”
“Hoarse!!! AND I UNDERSTAND THAT THE NEGATIVE SHIT THAT IS SAID BECAUSE YALL FEEL HURT,” he continues. “All good… I’ll let y’all have that. HOPE THAT HELPS YALL STATUS! Love you (I’m glad to know how yall really feel though.) guess god don’t make mistakes! SHOW TONIGHT… y’all invited too.”
Charlamagne Tha God was particularly upset with Chris Brown for missing the show and called him out on the show this morning. Still, Breezy seems like he is not upset and is willing to do the show at a future date so let’s hope that happens because we like to hear from the singer in interviews.

Azealia Banks is perhaps the only female rapper on the planet right now who did not congratulate Cardi B on her No. 1 record on Billboard.
From Nicki all the way back to the OGs like Lauryn Hill and Queen Latifa have all congratulate Cardi B yesterday, but Azealia Banks don’t feel like she deserves the W that she is getting right now. The Harlem rapper offloads a rant on Twitter calling the “Bodak Yellow” rapper a “poor man’s Nicki Minaj.”
“She’s only black when black want to include themselves in a success story,” Banks tweeted. “Because I thought she was going to be a Latina hottie and not a poor mans nicki. It went the other way now I’m over it.” She also blasted Charlamagne Tha God who she claimed is the reason why Cardi B got the number one song in the country. “Charlemagne and black men in hiphop should have gotten me, remy AND nicki a number one before they gave cardi or iggy one,” she continues.
Some hip hop fans think that Azealia Banks is just a bitter female rapper who ain’t got nothing going on for her. Charlamagne will likely give her donkey of the day for the hundredth time for these series of tweets. Even several of the male rappers like J. Cole and Kodak Black have offered their congratulations to Cardi B who created hip hop history this week when she became the first female rapper since Lauryn Hill to get a number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Cardi B responded saying that she will not let Azealia Banks take away her joy. “This is the happiest day of my life and no 1 will take this joy from me .I wish you sour patches a good day !Thats how happy I am,” she tweeted. “Every single FEMALE RAPPER CONGRATULATED ME TODAY .Is the best feeling cause I listened to ALL OF THEM.”
