Charlamagne says that that he was taken aback by the reaction he got while interviewing Onyx as part of The Breakfast Club in July.
“I was surprised because, you know, I’m the type of person I know if I ask a certain question, it may or may not go a certain way,” Charlamagne says of the interview during an exclusive interview with HipHopDX that premiered in the DX Daily today (September 3). "I know the questions I ask could be perceived in a negative way if you’re that type of person. Or, even if I tell somebody I don’t like their music or their music is wack or that their verse was wack, they could flip out. But if I’m saluting you ‘cause you got head from an R&B chick and you flip out, that’s a little weird. So it was a little surprising. It was a little shocking.”
During the July interview, Onyx member Fredro Starr exchanged words with Charlamagne after the radio host brought up his one-time relationship with singer Brandy.
