Charlamagne Tha God to Release Self-Help Book, ‘Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It’
If there's one thing Charlamagne Tha God has besides a penchant for stirring up controversy, it's sheer diligence because his career has been on a steady incline since bursting on the scene many years ago.
From growing up in Moncks Corner, S.C., to becoming Wendy Williams' sidekick on her long-running New York radio show, to now being the main star of The Breakfast Club, there seems to be nothing the 36-year-old can't do, and he wants to share some of his wisdom.
According to the Associated Press, Charlamagne will be sharing some of that wisdom in a new book titled Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It, which will contain "brutally honest insights" and helpful pieces of advice. In addition, Charlamagne said the book will be about maximizing one's potential, no matter who that person is and what circumstance they may find themselves in.
"I wrote this for the dreamers, for the optimists; this book isn't for pessimists," he told Hip-HopDX. "This book is about embracing who and what you are regardless of race, gender, sexuality and class. God gave you the privilege of this thing called life, so regardless of what this society tells you that you can't do and what you don't have, [you have] to understand you lack nothing. God gave you everything you need to succeed."
Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It — published by Simon & Shuster — will be available for purchase on April 2017.
