He has also appeared in a number of movies and TV shows such as “Kiss & Tail: The Hollywood Jumpoff”, “This Thing of Ours”, “Hood State of Union”, “Ride Along”, “Empire”, “Grow House” and “Bodied”, among others.
He is also an author. In 2017, he penned “Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It”, which was given a positive review by Steven Kurutz of The New York Times.

In The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Charlamagne shared Finding Success In Black Privilege.
He has also authored another book titled “Shook One: Anxiety Playing Tricks on Me”, whose title is a tribute to the song “Shook Ones” by Mobb Deep. In a recent interview with Bill Rhoden from HBCU 468 podcast where he talked about his new book, Charlamagne Tha God said, “That song is about not being soft or shook. But I am a shook one. A lot of things I thought I did was fearless, but I realized a lot of things that I did, I did because I was scared.”
It also seems that Charlamagne Tha God has another gift; he can see the future. During the interview, Charlamagne Tha God said he knew that the moment would come when such a thing as the #MeToo movement would arise. And, according to him, the time has come for men to square away how they relate to women. He was not shy of talking about his daughters and his desire for them to grow up in a world that is better for women.
Charlamagne Tha God also admitted that he is going through a transfiguration process while growing out of his past mistakes. View More Information Here.
He said, “It’s difficult when you are thinking a different way and people are using things from five years ago, six years ago, seven years ago, eight years ago and trying to paint a narrative of you now. If you want to judge for me old things, I’m fine with that. My narrative has completely changed. But you can’t compare 20-year-old Charlamagne, 30-year-old Charlamange to 40-year-old Charlamagne, who’s a father and husband.”
