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.

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.
