Charlamagne Tha God’s hometown of Columbia, South Carolina showered him with love yesterday. He copped his very own day and was super excited about it. More inside…

There’s a new hometown hero in Columbia, South Carolina.

Power 105 radio personality Charlamagne Tha God was awarded his very own day in his hometown yesterday.

It was a total surprise too. He was tapped as the keynote speaker for the C3 Conference, an event to expose entrepreneurs on how to brand themselves, and then he was presented with a plaque to declare Saturday, April 8, 2017 as “Charlamagne Tha God” Day.

Here’s a close up of his plaque:



That's what's up. Being the prince of petty and pissing people off pays off when you can build an empire from it.  He's been killing it with the Brilliant Idiots podcast, his new book Black Priviledge and a few shows on MTV.  Gotta respect the hustle.  Congrats Charlamagne!




Today I got one of the highest honors a person can receive, the key to the City Of Detroit. The mayor said he's given it to 3 people... Stevie Wonder, Berry Gordy, and Me. I'm the youngest person to receive this in the history of the city! Thank u for this monumental moment! He honored me and my foundation for motivating the city through my music n messaging and starting an actual curriculum called "Mogul Prep" that teaches kids all the behind the scenes jobs available in the music industry and taught to them at a high school level. This will be applied to Detroit Public Schools come this fall and some schools in Baltimore and more. thanks to my mom for being a teacher n helping w/ this tremendously and our foundation @seanandersonorg. N thanks to all the people that attended this inspiring event! I'm a keep putting my energy into this
