Last week I had the pleasure of attending New York Times Best Seller, Charlamagne Tha God’s book signing event. This was the DC leg of his book tour at The Capitale. I wanted to attend for a variety of reasons. I’m a Breakfast Club Fan, he is very controversial and CNN Political Commentator and NPR Political Analyst, Angela Rye was doing the chat with him. Yes, yes and more yes.
Charlamagne Tha God—the self-proclaimed “Prince of Pissing People Off,” co-host of Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, and “hip-hop’s Howard Stern”—shares his unlikely success story as well as how embracing one’s truths is a fundamental key to success and happiness.
Each attendee with a ticket received an autograph copy of Charlamagne’s book.
Before I get all into this, let’s chat about Angela Rye for a minute shall we? Yes, we shall. Angela Rye is an Attorney and a Political Strategist. This sister is killing the game in the most respectable ways and is still down. There aren’t a lot of young black women in politics but Angela is holding her own, kicking butt and taking names while paving the way for other black women. She was the perfect person to pair with Charlamagne.
Top Row: Angela Rye, far right. Top Row: Second from the left Luvvie Ajaye. All of these women are dope!
Dr. Michael Eric Dyson is a Georgetown University sociology professor, a New York Times contributing opinion writer, and a contributing editor of The New Republic, and of ESPN’s The Undefeated website. He is also a New York Times Best Seller.
#PictureFail – Charlamagne and I
Can’t leave without a goodie bag, it include the book. Capital City Mambo Sauce (mild & spicy) and Miss Jessie’s product samples. I started using these products way back in 2006 when I went back to my natural hair. Mambo Sauce is a DC thing, I can’t explain it is but it is amazing. It is usually put on fried chicken but we also love it on salmon. This is a staple in our home so I was really excited about this.
The artwork on the inside of the cover is so dope.
