The Truth About Eminem and Charlamagne Tha God’s Feud

Eminem and Charlamagne tha God are arguably two of the most polarizing characters in their respective fields. Eminem stormed the music scene in the late 1990s with a satirical rap flow that often landed the rapper in a series of public feuds. From Mariah Carey to Jessica Simpson, Eminem has become known for making fun of his peers.

Like Eminem, Charlamagne makes no secret of his outspoken opinion. The radio personality, best known for her role as co-host on Power 105’s The Breakfast Club, has hit out at celebrities since the beginning of her career. Charlamagne got his break on the radio when he was tapped to join Wendy Williams as a co-host on The Wendy Williams Experience. He was fired from the show in 2008 but has since become one of the biggest voices on urban radio. However, the station once got into an argument with rapper Eminem, and the argument was explosive.

Charlamagne the god said Eminem’s album was garbage

Charlamagne tha God is known for sharing his unfiltered opinion, and his review of Eminem’s Revival album was as bold as some might expect. During a meeting with rapper Joe Budden, Charlamagne said the Detroit native’s 2017 musical attempt was “garbage.”

“Eminem has been trash all year,” Charlamagne said, adding, “And the bad thing about Eminem is that he only came around in the fourth quarter and racked up enough trash points to be All-Star trash this year.” The radio personality went on to beat Eminem’s freestyle at the BET Awards, calling his lyrics and social justice attempts “subpar.”

In response, Eminem took a stab at Charlamagne in his next album, Kamikaze. “Charlamagne is gonna hate whatever I say/Give me Donkey of the Day, what a way for 2018 to get start,” Eminem raps his 2018 track The Ringer. Eminem also fired back at Budden, who seemed to agree with Charlamagne’s criticism.

Eminem and Charlamagne, God’s strife has settled

Eminem may have shot straight at Charlamagne the god in their messy feud, but the radio personality seemed to take the jab with ease. Following the release of Eminem’s surprise album Kamikaze, Charlamagne told Esquire he welcomed the musical immortalization. “It’s always cool when you get immortalized on records,” he said. “I’m just glad I’ve gotten to the level where rappers who can actually rap say my name on records, whether it’s a diss or not.” The morning show host continued his review of ” Revival”, but admits that Eminem’s follow-up attempt was much better. He even called the “Lose Yourself” rapper “one of the greatest lyricists of all time.”

Charlamagne reiterated his thoughts on Eminem’s musical abilities during a 2021 conversation on “The Breakfast Club.” “Eminem is quite an A-class legend, top-notch lyricist,” he said. Charlamagne then played a clip of Eminem dissing him in The Ringer before jokingly reminding the audience that he’ll always “find a way to hate Eminem.”
