Charlamagne: 2 White Rappers Are Up for Grammy – Iggy & Childish
Charlamagne shared his thoughts on J. Cole’s latest album, “2014 Forest Hills Drive,” and says that he loved the project. The famed radio host also spoke about the hit song “Fire Squad,” and breaks down his views on J. Cole’s line, “look around, my n***a, white people have snatched the sound.”
The “Guy Code” star says that people’s fear about Hip-Hop being “white washed” is the same unreasonable fear that Americans had over the Ebola crisis. Charlamagne says that Iggy will probably win a Grammy, but adds that she’s not the only white rapper in the running. The Breakfast Club host says that he considers Childish Gambino to be white, and believes that the “Royalty” rapper will most definitely embarrass himself if he wins.
