CHARLEMAGNE THA GOD
Growing up “Lenard McKelvey” in the small town of Moncks Corner, South Carolina, “Charlamagne Tha God” was once just another kid dreaming of a better life, yet inevitably falling prey to the dangerously glamorized street life. By the time he was 18, the precocious teen, who was no stranger to a few good books by way of his mother, a school teacher, slowed down his rebellious ways and stumbled upon his love for radio during an internship in his town. In just a few years, Charlamagne would be recognized as one of the best voices in South Carolina by the late 90s. While on the air in Columbia, S.C., Charlamagne drew attention to the local show he hosted on Hot103.9 (WHXT-FM) by distributing his controversial interviews and skits online. His irreverent, “shock jock” interview style, inspired by the likes of everyone from Larry King to Bill O’Reilly to Arsenio Hall, got the attention of, then, radio personality Wendy Williams, who would quickly take Charlamagne under her wing as an apprentice.
