BREEZED PAST IT. THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE TO TALK
ABOUT AFTER THAT. LET’S HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT
THAT, WHY ARE YOU NOT ON YOUR MEDICATION? WHEN I SAW HIM AT THE WHITE

SLEEP DEPRIVATION, AND I FELT HE NEEDED TO FIG THAT YOU ARE OUT. WHAT I’M TRYING TO DO, ELEVATE
THE CONVERSATION OF MENTAL HEALTH IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY

GOOD CONVERSATION. IT WOULD BE A DISTRACTION. ( APPLAUSE ).>>Stephen: BECAUSE YOU

YOUR MENTAL PROBLEMS.>>YEAH, I WAS TRYING TO HAVE A
CLEAR CONVERSATION. BECAUSE I THINK, YOU KNOW,
THERE’S NOTHING MORE POWERFUL THAN WATCHING TWO BROTHERS LIKE
ME ON THERE TALKING ABOUT MY ANXIETY AND P.T.S.D., AND TRAUMA
FROM THINGS THAT HAPPENED TO ME WHEN I WAS YOUNGER AND HIM
TALKING ABOUT BEING BIPOLAR. I THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE A STRONG
CONVERSATION FOR PEOPLE TO HEAR AND PEOPLE TO FEEL COMFORTABLE,

THEIR ISSUES ARE, IT MAKES IT EASIER FOR ME.>>Stephen: HOW DID YOU DO IT? DID YOU CALL HIM UP?>>I REACHED OUT TO HIS TEAM

SAW HIM IN THE WHITE HOUSE TALKING TO DONALD TRUMP SAYING
HE WAS FINE. HE DIDN’T NEED MEDICATION, HE
JUST NEEDED A HAT.>>THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION. I TOOK A DAY. I DIDN’T WANT IT TO BE A
KNEE-JERK REACTION. SOMETIMES WE SEE EVERYBODY WITH

AND DON’T THINK FOR OURSELVES S.>>Stephen: SAY MAYBE YOU
HAVE A SHOW THAT NIGHT AND YOU HAVE TO COME UP WITH A JOKE
RIGHT AWAY?>>YES. I WAITED A DAY AND THEN I
REACHED OUT TO HIS TEAM AND REACHED OUT TO HIS PEOPLE. AND THEY WERE ALL KIND OF
RELIEVED.>>Stephen: WHY?>>THEY JUST FELT LIKE THAT WAS

YOU GOTTA TELL HIM.” I’M LIKE, “OKAY. WHAT’S THE PROBLEM WITH TELLING
ANOTHER GROWN MAN, HEY, I DON’T THINK THIS IS THE BEST THING
RIGHT NOW.” WE JUST HAD THE CONVERSATION. WE ACTUALLY HAD THE CONVERSATION

PERSON.>>Stephen: SOME PEOPLE DON’T
THINK BLACK PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY AFRICAN AMERICAN MEN, HAVE
ANYTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. THEY ACTUALLY HAVE A LEG UP.>>WHAT.>>Stephen: ON WHITE PEOPLE. AND THEY’VE THOUGHT THIS FOR A
LONG TIME. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THIS MAN.>>A WELL-EDUCATED BLACK HAS A
TREMENDOUS ADVANTAGE OVER A WELL-EDUCATED WHITE IN TERMS OF
THE JOB MARKET. AND I THINK SOMETIMES A BLACK
MAY THINK THAT THEY DON’T REALLY HAVE THE ADVANTAGE OR THIS OR
THAT. BUT IN ACTUALITY, TODAY,
CURRENTLY, IT’S– IT’S A GREAT– I’VE SAID ON OCCASION, EVEN
ABOUT MYSELF, IF I WAS STARTING OFF TODAY, I WOULD LOVE TO BE A
WELL-EDUCATED BLACK BECAUSE I REALLY BELIEVE THEY DO HAVE AN
ACTUAL ADVANTAGE TODAY. ( BOOING ).>>Stephen: MAY I REMIND YOU,

SIZE. THIS IS WHAT I THINK, RIGHT? ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )>>DONALD TRUMP WOULD NEVER WANT
TO BE A BLACK MAN. NOT IF HE EVER REALLY WANTED TO
BE PRESIDENT. BECAUSE IF DONALD TRUMP WAS THE

IT’S THE ONLY REASON –>>Stephen: DO YOU WANT TO
EXPLAIN WHAT BRAZER IS.>>THEY KNOW. THEY’RE SITTING BY THEIR WIVES.>>Stephen: “SHOOK ONE” IS
AVAILABLE NOW. CHARLAMAGNE THA GOD, EVERYBODY! WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK.

100 thoughts on “Why Charlamagne Tha God Cancelled On Kanye”

  1. So Charlemagne found out that Kayne was misdiagnosed and he thought that a conversation with Kanye wouldn't attract people? How is that spreading awareness about mental health? He says at 3:03 that if they both talked about mental health and anxiety, its powerful and people would hear it. Seems like he didn't have anything "interesting" to talk about with Kanye tbh.

  2. Charlemagne's face at 5:50 , his comeback at 6:05 and Steve's stress ball intensity thereafter 😂😂😂 pure gold!

  3. Lol that’s exactly why Kanye is doing what he’s doing cuz everyone is telling him how he needs to think in order to be accepted. In a weird way it’s the ultimate form of racism because they are telling him he needs to “fall in line” and think how most blacks people think or he’s just crazy or “off his meds”. The hypocrisy on this show is mind boggling. South Park could have a field day.

  4. so you wanna start the conversation about mental health by denying an interview with someone who's in the eye of it? okay.

  5. As soon as someone has a different opinion they’re crazy….let Kanye wear a MAGA hat if he wants to, let him like Trump if he wants to….Is it doesn’t fit their narrative, they’re crazy….we see right thru that

  6. Kanye was invited to the White House. And the "MAN" that pays your salary is making sure that you do his discrediting of another black man for him. You are not original just a mixed up individual. Since you were on TV, why didn't you take the time to give a shotout to the brothers about killing each other CHARLAMAGNE? Why doesn't the Breakfast Club have a 60 seconds public service announcement on stopping the violence in our communities CHARLAMAGNE? That's because the "MAN" has your daily script.

  7. Wise guy who actually knows something about mental health! Multiple celebs commenting on Kanye’s behavior had no idea what to do with that topic. 👏🏼

  8. I just wanna know I didn't understand why they were not happy when Trump said that a well educated black man has an advantage to a well educated white man.
    I thought it was a compliment or just because it came from Trump's mouth means that is bad??

  9. What you all don't seem to understand is that Kanye took the news of the cancellation from CTG well because he was in Uganda. Being in Afrika, for any black person who is treated as a minority or oppressed because of the colour of his skin, is therapy in itself.
    So to all our brothers and sisters in America, come visit the Motherland, don't listen to naysayers who say we are different. We hv more in common than differences.

  10. People that seek help for mental health really just need someone to point their life in the right direction

  11. Whoever actually listens to this fool is so blind. Wake up and stop being a puppet. Do your own research and you will see that this charlemagne fool is a liar.

  12. Not necessarily a fan of CtG (he plays devil’s advocate way to much when called out), still, good interview.

  13. not to be in your meds is a good thing… meds is not a good thing too much side effects… he needs therapy, mutual support, many things NOT meds

  14. I've known several people with bipolar. They all on a regular basis stop taking their meds and say that they have been miss diagnosed. If they are lucky someone cares about them enough to help them get back on them. If not, the results can be bad, such as slipping into split personality disorder or alcoholism,etc

  15. Charlamagne is a very well spoken man with an impressive resiliency despite a lack of a structured learning environment which I think speaks volumes to his innate ability to articulate a very well-thought out argument in almost every stance he takes.. He does not simply rely on buzz words, fame or the inability for his listeners to disregard his opinions simply because of who he is,.. He backs it all up with thoughtful regard and I appreciate listening to him every day .. I hope never to be the donkey.. but as we all know, no one is safe. A donkey is a donkey.

  16. Ppl rlly need to understand mental health. There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance. Bi polar, anxiety disorders, manic depression, these things have nothing to do with chemical imbalance. Chemical imbalances don’t exist. There is no way to see an actual “chemical imbalance”. Mental health is due to the vibrational state of the human being. Literally ppl have reversed all kinds of diseases mental and physical just by changing their lifestyle and diet. Intermittent fasting and plant based diets have been proven to reverse depression, anxiety, bi polar and even schizophrenia. And physical symptoms, including Parkinson’s, MS, dimentia, Alzheimer’s etc. Science is moving closer to prove that EVERY DISEASE STARTS IN THE GUT, NOT IN THE BRAIN. Don’t take my word for it, do your own research.
    “Disease” was created by big pharma so they can gain money and trick the public into thinking they need them….

  17. Somebody should cancel that outfit. Listen when you have to explain your outfit that means you don’t dress like that ever. Not periodically or sometime or once in a blue.

  18. I felt bad for Charlamagne for his failed attempt to make people laugh with his "brazzers" joke, than i felt bad at myself for being a degenerate who misunderstood the joke

  19. Sooo, well educated black guy here. I have two BA's working on a MA and a JD. I hate Trump, but he wasn't totally wrong in that clip. I have noticed myself that in the corporate world there is nothing rich white people love more than feeling like they are saving a black guy from a life of poverty, and by that I mean I have worked in several high paying office jobs that I am pretty sure I got them mainly because I am black. My resume was good but it was not spectacular.

    In the two offices, I have worked at I was the only full-time black employee and the companies treated me great. They gave me the best office and the best projects. Everything I handed in they told me was great and I always got raises after every work evaluation. Now I am a good worker, but if you were to ask my former bosses, I was their best worker ever. (I was not, I had good days and bad days and slacked off some days just like everybody else.)

    There is just a stigma that black people are lazy and violent (which is racist and terrible), but you can use it to your advantage because if you come in there and show a decent amount of effort and are "well mannered," an educated black male can go far in today's corporate world.

    I won't go as far to say it is easier for us holistically than whites, but there is some truth to the argument, because getting ahead in the office requires getting noticed, and if you're black in a room full of white peoples, they are going to notice you, the trick is to use that fact to your advantage.

  20. This show is literally here to try to shape the way you think. The people that know truth are they people they bash.

  21. Wait so trump is wrong that black men ain’t smart ijs nothing trump said was wrong ever blk person I’ve met through life is smart an make things happen

  22. Charlemagne just casually saying "his talking about penis size" wow😂😂😂. However that clip of Trump has always puzzled me because for him to say such just makes me question whether he was and still is leaving in "Reality". I think this man has his own universe, I swear😂😂😂

  23. If what happened with Kanye was authentic and came from a place of love and sincerity then I really respect him for that. He has a quick wit, too. He does piss me off, at times, but I will give credit where it’s due.

  24. I wonder who gave this guy authority to always speak for black people it's way more important people to talk to I think charlamagne is another Steve Harvey in the making

  25. I wonder if he knows Charlamgne means Charles the Great, so technically, his name is "Charles the Great tha God"

  26. He is as racist as they come about white people he even hates on all white rapper's check it out if you don't believe

  27. Perhaps Charlamagne's anxiety is playing tricks on him regarding the whole Kanye thing. Kanye said he was misdiagnosed, so why not take his word for it and be happy that he's off the meds? There's no use in speculating about someone else's medical issues when you're not a doctor–especially when you're the one with anxiety issues.

  28. Charlamangne is just a shill for the establishment with a black face he knows nothing about what he is talking about and he attacked Tulsi gabbard for holding kamala's feet to the fire for her atrocious record as far as keeping minorities locked up and throwing away the key his defense of Kamala is inexcusable and his reasoning is idiotic so listening to him attack Trump is meaningless because Trump is THE lowest hanging fruit in the universe and instead he should be supporting Tulsi or Bernie who will most likely be the only candidates who can actually beat Trump but he won't do that because he is just an asset of the CIA and simply is thrown and as a talking head to further identity politics in this country to divide and conquer he should be ashamed of himself is a selfish idiot that cares nothing about his community and is only doing what he is told to enrich in his own pockets and if he denies this he's a f** liar or just a complete moron

  29. pot calling the kettle black. These fu.cking idiots thought the president was a Russian spy for 3 years, lmao.

  30. The whole reason Kanye even talks to Trump and tweets like crazy is because he’s bipolar and having a manic episode but people are just so ignorant about mental health
