On August 31st, Charlamagne tha God responded to Eminem’s surprise album Kamikaze. Along with Angela Lee and DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God discussed several bars from Eminem’s album.

 

Along with Drake, Joe Budden, and a plethora of other hip hop personalities and rappers, Charlamagne himself was a target of Eminem on Kamikaze. Eminem rapped: “Charlamagne gonna hate anyway, doesn’t matter what I say/Give me Donkey of the Day/”

 

Charlamagne’s opinion of Revival, as well as the opinion of the majority of the hip hop community, is the primary reason that Eminem made the surprise album. The general consensus was that Revival was one of Eminem’s weakest project. Critics may have sparked the fire inside of Eminem, but they are not immune from being trashed in Eminem’s bars.

 

However, Charlamagne has a different opinion about the new album. He confessed the Kamikaze is a good album.

 

The 2018 BET Cypher was also criticized by Charlamagne. Charlamagne explained that he loved that a white artist was standing up against prejudice, however; the freestyle by Eminem on the show simply wasn’t that impressive. Charlamagne’s negative opinion of the freestyle stems from believing that Eminem didn’t give it his all on the verse, not from disliking the content.

 

“I don’t hate. I tell the truth,” said Charlamagne. “That’s not hatin – me saying Revival was wack – ’cause clearly Eminem thought Revival was wack too,” he explained. “That’s why he gave us this sneaky album[…] He thought Revival was wack. He knows it was wack.”

 

The most controversial bar of the album was aimed at Tyler, the Creator. According to Charlamagne, Eminem doesn’t understand the impact that a homophobic slur has an an entire community. Despite Tyler, the Creator calling himself the same word that Eminem used on Kamikaze, Eminem’s usage of the word has damaging effects that will be felt all over the world.

“[Eminem] is throwing a shot at millions of gay people around the globe,” said Charlamagne. “But I don’t think he care.”

 

Charlamagne Tha God is a household name in entertainment.

 

As one of the co-hosts of the hip-hop morning show, ‘The Breakfast Club,’ on iHeartRadio, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see where he got the inspiration for his new book entitled “Shook One: Anxiety Playing Tricks On Me.” The title comes from two hip-hop songs that speak out against being anxious and afraid, which is mostly what his second written work explains.

Sahm Adrangi is the founder and Chief Investment officer for Kerrisdale Capital Management. This company researches the telecommunications, biotechnology and mining industries. Their goal is to correct misinformation and/or misconception about overvalued short stock and underfollowed long stock. In March 2018, Sahm Adrangi’s company issued a scathing report about Proteostasis Therapeutics Incorporated (PTI).

PTI is a Cambridge, MA based company that is working on a drug to treat cystic fibrosis. On March 18th, the company announced that it received the Breakthrough Therapy Designation for the drug PTI-428. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gives this designation to expedite the development and review of new drugs. The FDA believes this drug will offer substantial improvement over existing drug treatments. The designation resulted from an announcement by Proteostasis that its Phase II trials showed meaningful improvement in patient’s pulmonary function relative to a placebo.

Kerrisdale Capital warns that Proteostasis is providing investors misleading information on the effectiveness of the drug. In a report completed at the end of March 2018, Kerrisdale stated the stock price spiked by 100% after the FDA announcement. After only five days, Proteostasis share count doubled (suggesting influx of new and possibly uninformed investors). PTI immediately offered a nine million share public offering within days. Proteostasis want to sell shares at the new higher rate.

Sahm Adrangi believes the data provided by PTI does not represent the true outcome of the trial. When one digs deeply into the trial, the data shows minimal improvement from using PTI-428 against a reasonable baseline. The improvements shown was a result of the placebo group doing extremely poorly. As a result, the test group performance looked promising when compared to the placebo. Phase II trial results mirrored the disappointing results of the Phase I trials. Therefore, Sahm Adrangi plans to short PTI’s shares (believes the share price will decrease in the future). Kerrisdale believes PTI’s actual value is about 70% to 90% less than its current market price (at time of article, the valuation was $6.99 per share).

Charlamagne Tha God is a well-known radio host and television personality and he had criticism to Eminem’s recent album “Kamikaze.” An article from Esquire summarizes his response to a homophobic slur that was directed towards another rapper Tyler, the Creator. Eminem took shots at the radio host as well on his album, but the radio personality is grateful that the popular rapper even mentioned him, whether it’s good or bad.

 

Charlamagne Tha God believes that Eminem does not care for the LGBT community with his diss towards Tyler, the Creator as an example because he already acknowledged that he was a part of that community. One message he backs from the rapper though is calling out the president, Donald Trump, and using his white privilege to highlight the split.

 

The artist’s last album “Revival” faced backlash for the political ranting, but Charlamagne Tha God believes that aspect was a lot better on “Kamikaze.” Despite the radio host not liking Eminem for dissing Tyler, The Creator, he actually enjoyed his latest work and thought it was a lot better than his previous album “Revival.” Many do believe that the artist was trying to show that he still has it after the extreme backlash on his previous album and Charlamagne agrees with that narrative. See Related Link for more information.

 

He even believes that Eminem himself knows that “Revival” was not good. Charlamagne also had some positive comments about Eminem as an artist and calls him one of the greatest ever and a legend. He always has known that Eminem is a great lyricist but says he couldn’t be a fan because he does not relate to a lot of his own views and experiences.

 

Charlamagne Tha God says he recognizes the talent, although, he does not relate to him. The article ends on a note of the radio host positively critiquing the artist and that he will always be a legend and that his place in the rap game will always be up there with the greats.
