“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.
