Funnyman, national icon and radio personality, Charlamagne Tha God is no stranger to controversy, or controversial subjects. All of which undoubtedly explains why he feels right at home inviting rapper, producer and founder of the record label, GOOD MUSIC, Kanye West, (not a stranger to controversy either) to have a mental health-specific conversation with him at the New York City Town Hall, on October 17,7:00 PM.
The invitation follows in the wake of Kanye’s infamous Saturday Night Live appearance, wearing his now famous “Trump hat,” claiming he was bullied for the attire choice. It also follows some easily misunderstood political tweets put forth by the rapper, in which he argued first for abolishing the thirteenth constitutional amendment, which outlaws slavery, before amending his comments to suggest amending the amendment instead.

Arguable political fodder and celebrity brouhahas are bread and butter for Charlamagne Tha God, who regularly co-hosts the talk/ music fest known as the, “Breakfast Club,” on IHeartRadio, wherein he makes pointed jabs at the pratfalls of celebrities. Add in the point that Kanye is a fellow media celebrity, it’s not at all strange that Tha God would ask Kanye, who’s graced the Charlemagne Tha God hot seat before, for yet another sit down.
Charlamagne Tha God and Kanye West have addressed the issue of mental health before, in the wake of the celebrity’s 2016 canceled tour, stopped reputedly due to a mental breakdown on the part of Kanye West. The slated October 17 interview promises to address Kanye’s issues as well as the larger issues of PTSD, anxiety and therapy. Also on the discussion menu will be Charlamagne’s new book; “Shook Up: Anxiety Playing Tricks On Me.”
