Raised in a small town by a religious mother and a crack sniffing, alcoholic father, life didn’t come on a platter for Charlamagne. The environment was harsh but here’s where he learned one of his most valued principles of attaining success in life: “bite your tongue for none.” By following his gut and believing in himself, he managed to land jobs in different radio stations including co-hosting the Wendy Williams show and hosting the Breakfast Club. As a person in the public arena, he experienced love, hate, criticism, physical attack and even dismissal from four different jobs on account of his brutal honesty.
Charlamagne describes brutal honesty as a sign of real friendship and good manners. He writes boldly, using fearless speech and uncensored anecdotes from his formative years to explain his evolution. The author is expressive about his sexual and criminal escapades and articulates his learning points using lyrics from hip hop tracks. He quotes artists like a skilled essayist on an excellent thesis driving the point home brilliantly, especially for lovers of hip hop music. He shares eight principles which he learned and developed over time. These principles have been the anchor of his successes, and he hopes to impress on the reader.
