After about a million tweets and highly publicized support for Present Trump, fans have had a ton of unanswered questions when it comes to Kanye West. And today those same fans received answers to many of their questions, as Kanye took to YouTube to share his anticipated interview with Charlamagne Tha God.
Speaking on Donald Trump, Obama, Jay-Z, Virgil Abloh, mental health and more, Kanye West gave fans a very person window into his last year.
One thing that will give Yeezy’s more liberal fans a ton of comfort is when Kanye opened up about his recent support of President Trump. When describing a Kanye West run for presidency, Ye described it as a “Trump campaign with maybe the Bernie Sanders principles.” Kanye reiterated that Donald Trump becoming president showed him that he could one day become president, which clearly resonates a lot with Kanye. Although fans don’t like seeing Kanye in a MAGA hat, they should take comfort in knowing that Kanye West doesn’t agree with the majority of Trump’s controversial policies and political views.
It’s also not entirely surprising to see Kanye to move away from the Democratic Party, after hearing how Kanye was affected by interactions with President Obama. Not only was Kanye upset when video leaked of Obama calling West an asshole (with no apology after), but Kanye also shared a story of when he performed for an Obama fundraiser, but the President left right before Kanye performed, with no explanation. Let’s hope the two can talk and mend things real soon.
Watch Kanye West’s 100+ minute interview with Charlamagne below.
The always hilarious, rapper Lil Dicky, paid a visit to Charlamagne and friends at Power 105.1‘s The Breakfast Club to talk about his come up, white privileged, his new Fetty Wap assisted single ‘Save Dat Money’, penis girth, and more. At one point, Charlamagne tried to get deep and randomly asked Dicky, a white Jewish rapper, what he is doing for the “Black Lives Matter” movement.
Dicky had a perfect response though, saying “First off, I think it’s ridiculous we live in a society where people aren’t able to treat everyone equally… That being said though, I’m not doing much… I’m not doing much for world hunger though either.” LD later asked Charlamagne what he should do, and Charlamagne couldn’t really give much of a good answer.

This week Chance the Rapper and Donnie Trumpet (of The Social Experiment) stopped by Power 105.1 for their first ever appearance on “The Breakfast Club” with DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee. Its only right that the two Chi-town grown artists paid a visit to The Breakfast Club as the classic John Hughes film of the same name was filmed just outside of Chicago. Check out the full interview below as Chance talks about his come up, getting a phone call from Jay-Z, Obama and much more. Chance and Donnie also talk about their upcoming album Surf and Chance even gives an indirect shootout to The Early Registration for our coverage on his recent Open Mikeevents (around the 32:30 mark).
It definitely was entertaining last time, and now (less than a year later) Kanye will be a guest on Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” tomorrow, as he is in New York for New York Fashion Week. The Breakfast Club’s Charlamagne Tha God took to his Twitter today to announce the return of Yeezus. Check in tomorrow to see what news DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne can get out of Ye, or see if Kanye has had enough with Charlamagne’s trolling. Peep the tweets below and watch Kanye’s interview from last time.
Ever since Angie Martinez leftHot 97 for Power 105.1, Angie has recruited some of music’s biggest names for interviews (Nicki Minaj, J. Cole, Nas, French Montana and more). And sometimes there is only so much time to do press at the Power 105.1 offices, leaving DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God at “The Breakfast Club” out of the spotlight. Just a few months ago “The Breakfast Club” WAS Power 105.1, and now they are sharing publicity and artists as Angie snatches some of the big interviews, just like how Power 105.1 snatched Angie from Hot 97.
A couple of months ago Power 105.1‘s Charlamagne Tha God reached out to us, upset about our reports on the rumor that he had been bleaching his skin. Although he denied the allegations, that didn’t stop his Power 105.1 co-host Angela Yee from joking about him bleaching his skin. In a recent video, it appears as Charlamagne has had enough of the skin jokes, aggressively cussing at Angela Yee, telling her to “get out of the f*cking car”. Check out the video and Charlagmange’s tweets to The Early Registration below. This time we did reach out for comment, however we received no response.
Power 105.1‘s Charlamagne Tha God, a radio personality who often speaks on racial issues and who recently beefed with Childish Gambino about viewing ‘white’ as correlation to success, may be bleaching his skin?
