Knicks guard Iman Shumpert has decided to blow off some steam, but not on the basketball court. This morning he released a diss track titled “#HowtoHate” and called out Power 105. 1’s The Breakfast Club hosts Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy.
On the song he raps, “Tell Charlamagne when he see him me he better holla at me…hater/Envy better holla at me/I don’t do the fake s###/I bet they listen when it buzz and they name in it.”
The Chicago native told TMZ that he is sick and tired of Charlamagne and Envy saying reckless things and claiming that it’s for the sake of their job.
“I feel that when cameras are rolling Charlamagne and Envy will say anything for ratings and then behind the scenes will try and whisper that it’s just a job and they don’t mean any harm. But they stated some things on the radio that I felt were detrimental to my brand so I will defend my brand.”
The 24-year-old said he wrote the song for people who throw shade at celebrities and expect them to take the high road.
“Well this song is letting everyone know that even though I’m a celeb. I’m a real person that likes to have a solid understanding of respect in any relationship that I have with another person.”
Charlamagne is aware of the track and has been retweeting news stories with responses, saying he’s “harmless” and “Everybody Hates Charlamagne.”
