(AllHipHop News) Azealia Banks has made a name for herself as an outspoken commentator that is not afraid to take aim at other celebrities. One of those targets was The Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne Tha God.
The Power 105 radio personality was asked about Azealia referring to him as “Jigaboo Tha Champagne Goddess.” In an interview with VladTV, Charlamagne actually admitted the “212” rapper reminds him of himself in the way she comes up with insulting nicknames, but he also addressed AB calling a “house n****r,” “Uncle Tom” and “coon.”
“I’ve realized with all the racial tension going on in America – first of all, a lot of these young kids be using insults that they don’t really know the meaning behind the insult,” said the Guy Code cast member. “You call Charlamagne a coon. You know what a coon is? A coon is somebody that reinforces the negative stereotypes of Black people. So technically 90% of Hip Hop are a bunch of coons, because they pretend to be drug dealers and gangsters.”
Charlamagne dismissed the idea that he is a “coon” or “Uncle Tom,” suggesting a lot of his personal ideologies are the same as Dr. Martin Luther King. He added Houston rapper and former reality show star Riff Raff is a real example of a coon and the White rapper that truly represents the appropriation of Hip Hop.
“If they let Riff Raff blow up in 2015, y’all better wild the f**k out. The way y’all treating Iggy, y’all better wild out,” Charlamagne stated. “That’s a coon. That’s cultural appropriation, 360%.”
