Overview

Instant New York Times Bestseller
Charlamagne Tha God—the self-proclaimed “Prince of Pissing People Off,” co-host of Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, and “hip-hop’s Howard Stern”—shares his unlikely success story as well as how embracing one’s truths is a fundamental key to success and happiness.

In his new book, Charlamagne Tha God presents his comic, often controversial, and always brutally honest insights on how living an authentic life is the quickest path to success. Beginning with his journey from the small town of Moncks Corner, South Carolina to his headline grabbing interviews with celebrities like Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, and Hillary Clinton, he shares how he turned his troubled early life around by owning his (many) mistakes and refusing to give up on his dreams, even after his controversial opinions got him fired from several on-air jobs. Combining his own story with bold advice and his signature commitment to honesty at all costs, Charlamagne hopes this book will give others the confidence to live their own truths.

Editorial Reviews
From the Publisher
“After meeting this young man I was impressed by his real desire to be relevant and his genuine yearning to leave meaningful footprints in the sand, this book is just that: a young man passing on relevant knowledge and experiences to help others better their position in life. Way to go young soldier, UNK is proud.” —Steve Harvey

“Charlamagne thinks that just because he's wise about race stuff he can say whatever the f*ck he wants about women. That's now how it works dude. Nice try. And stop asking questions about my butt.” —Lena Dunham

“Charlamagne is a great friend.....after you threaten to punch him in the face a few times.” —La La Anthony

“South Carolina has produced some really beautiful, talented, smart, upstanding citizens.....and Charlamagne!” —Stephen Colbert

“Charlamagne is a f*cking asshole, but he's my favorite one." —Issa Rae

Cohost of The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne's influence reaches far beyond the limits of New York Power 105.1's FM signal. A book of advice, it also offers up reflections on the radio personality's life.

As someone who is also outspoken and doesn't apologize for the words that come out of my mouth, I can truly appreciate this book. Without background their is no context so I did enjoy the background of who you were, to where you are made the transitions easy to follow. There are a lot of positive messages and reinforcements that are socially and culturally relevant. Will this book win a Pultizer Prize no but that is not the intention either, its a learn from me do better be better book with witty commentary. If you have ever heard or watched the Breakfast Club Charlamange stood to who he is
