Charlamagne (Tha God) started to feel bad about releasing the audio of Floyd Mayweather struggling to read. He didn’t realize adult illiteracy was such a prevalent issue and was taken aback about blasting Mayweather lack of an ability to read a radio spot.
“The Breakfast Club” co-host released the audio to his audience last week — claiming that’s his job.
“In hindsight I feel a little bad, only because he was recording drops for us,” the Power 105.1 personality added. “I guess that was supposed to be a private thing but you can’t un-ring a bell. My job is to benefit the listeners first and foremost, entertain the listeners first and foremost, and to get ratings. You can’t get ratings without listeners. So I wanna do things that the listeners enjoy even though you may hate me for it or you may love me for that.” Charlamagne told HipHopdx.
Charlamagne only felt a little bad. He said it’s his job to share with his audience — after his show was able to back up 50 Cent‘s claim about Mayweather’s illiteracy.
“I super-serve my listeners. When I hear 50 Cent saying that the man can’t read. I don’t know what 50’s talking about. So when my producer comes to me and says, ‘Hey, we got audio of Floyd reading,’ and I listen to it, my first thought is, ‘The listeners need to hear this,’” he said to Bossip.com
He added, “Don’t feel sorry for the villains” — saying that Mayweather as a villain had it coming for many mean (trifling) things he had done.
