Charlamagne Tha God Discusses Life and His New Book

Comedian Charlamagne tha God recently discussed his book Shook One: Anxiety Playing Tricks on me with sports journalist Bill Rhoden.

In the book, Charlamagne discusses his battle with anxiety and post traumatic stress, and his decision to seek therapy.

The book’s title is a take on Mobb Depp’s “Shook Ones” song. Charlamagne explained to Rhoden that some of what he previously believed was fearless behavior was actually brought on by his own irrational fears.

The “Blackanoid” chapter in his book addresses living in America as a black man suffering from anxiety. He admits that much of his anxieties culminate from that. The decision to go to therapy at the age of 39 helped him address his fears and the guilt he suppressed from harmful actions from out of his past.

One detrimental action from his past that he still wrestles with is selling crack cocaine when he was younger. The woman he sold it to became an addict and her daughter was forced to drop out of school to take care of her.

He also touches on the #MeToo movement and it has forced men to take responsibility for the negativity they have brought to their relationships.

“I have a wife and two daughters. My goal is to make the world a better place for women.”

Charlamagne also says he is learning from mistakes of his past. “I don’t think it’s fair for people to paint a certain narrative based on who you were 10, 15 or 20 years ago.”

He also offered his viewpoint on the current situation regarding standing for the national anthem. Charlamagne says he cannot watch the NFL this year because he feels the rule is unjust. “People should be able to protest silently if they like. It’s about justice for black and brown people who have suffered from police brutality. If the NFL cannot support that, I cannot support them.”
