While fans are dissecting Eminem’s new surprise album Kamikaze, The Breakfast Club weighed in on some of the tracks. Breakfast Club Co-host Charlamagne Tha God responded to a line with his name mentioned from one of tracks on the album called “The Ringer.”
Addressing The Line
In “The Ringer” Eminem talks about the 2018 BET Cypher and in his bars he mentions that no matter what he says he will get hated on by Charlamagne. On Friday August 31st, Charlamagne decided to clear the air on his own behalf. First he noted that Eminem actually quoted something he had previously said about a BET Cypher. The next thing to address was even though he didn’t take what Eminem said as an insult, he wants everyone to know that he doesn’t hate, he tells the truth. He went on to say the reason fans are getting a surprise album is because Revival was wack and Eminem knew it.
Addressing The Homophobic Line
After addressing the shot at Charlamagne, the Breakfast Club trio moved on to talk about other people who got attacked in the song. The Tyler The Creator line used a homophobic slur, and Charlamagne Tha God weighed in on that. Charlamagne says even though Eminem is quoting something that Tyler said about himself, he believes that people will still take offense to the line. He says even though you are free to say what you want, people are also free to be offended. He goes on to say that Eminem needs to know that when he takes the shot at Tyler he’s also attacking millions of gay people globally. View Additional Info Here.
