'Be Honest': Charlamagne On The Power Of Words

Radio personality and entertainer Charlagmagne Tha God talks with his friend Cari Champion about why he released unflattering audio of Floyd Mayweather, how he's grown and about the power of words when you're a culture leader.

Famous or infamous, known or unknown: A voice attached to a personality with a platform can change perspectives, if not a culture. I often think this when I listen to radio personality and entertainer Charlagmagne Tha God.

He's one of the biggest voices in pop culture. He's in the news regularly. Some say it's hype; others feel he can speak for a generation. Whether you agree with him or not, like him or dislike him, you know who he is by his actions and words.

Early this summer, before Floyd Mayweather's fight against Manny Pacquiao, Charlagmagne released audio on his radio show, "The Breakfast Club," where you could hear Mayweather having trouble reading a radio promotion. There had been a lot of talk about Mayweather's reading ability, but the backlash and the education Charlagmagne received made him think about the power of his voice and his influence in a community.

On this episode of "Be Honest," I ask him why he released the audio and we discuss the power of his words.
