Charlamagne Tha God On Eminem's "Kamikaze" Diss: "He Knows 'Revival' Was Wack"
"I don't hate. Tell you the truth."
New York, NY – As fans continue to decipher Eminem's surprise Kamikaze album bar by bar, The Breakfast Club was obviously busy doing the same thing.
On Friday's episode (August 31), co-host Charlamagne Tha God has responded to Em's line about him on the track "The Ring."

(yes)."
All the pots will be stirred!!! For the record I think #Kamikaze album is dope, BUT ALL the POTS move!
