Charlamagne tha God’s First Book: Black Privilege


Charlamagne Tha God—the self-proclaimed “Prince of Pissing People Off,” co-host of Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, and “hip-hop’s Howard Stern”—shares his unlikely success story as well as how embracing one’s truths is a fundamental key to success and happiness.

In his new book, Charlamagne Tha God presents his comic, often controversial, and always brutally honest insights on how living an authentic life is the quickest path to success. Beginning with his journey from the small town of Moncks Corner, South Carolina to his headline grabbing interviews with celebrities like Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, and Hillary Clinton, he shares how he turned his troubled early life around by owning his (many) mistakes and refusing to give up on his dreams, even after his controversial opinions got him fired from several on-air jobs. Combining his own story with bold advice and his signature commitment to honesty at all costs, Charlamagne hopes this book will give others the confidence to live their own truths.



Chapter 2, of Charlamagne tha God’s book is titled, PYP (Pick Your Passion, Poison, or Procrastination.) Lenard discusses that there are 3 P’s that you can choose in life. Passion which leads to prosperity, Poison which leads to pain, and procrastination which leads to nowhere because you’re waiting for success to find you.

This book should be mandatory reading for pretty much everyone. This is why:

“When you stop complaining about where you are physically and start focusing on where you are mentally, that’s when you will start to transcend your circumstances.” – Charlamagne tha God

That’s a quote from Charlamagne tha God’s first book, Black Privilege. The shock jock has recently been in the news, for a sex scandal. The brother was accused of rape of a 15 year old. It makes you wonder if it was this bit of intestinal fortitude helped the brother make it through the scandal. Unscathed.
