About The Book

From Charlamagne tha God, multi-hyphenate mogul, host of the morning radio phenomenon The Breakfast Club, and CEO of iHeartRadio’s Black Effect Podcast Network, a real talk rundown on how small talk from small minds have taken over our world, and the BIG conversations needed to climb our way back.

For over a decade, Charlamagne tha God—cohost of the nationally syndicated morning radio institution The Breakfast Club—has proven his power as a culture mover, thought leader, and an American truth-teller-in-chief. He pulls no punches on-air, and from his famous “You ain’t black” moment with President Biden, to heartfelt chats with Hollywood royalty like Viola Davis and Chris Rock, to viral classics with Jake Paul and Hasan Minhaj, his reach and impact on the pulse of culture have only continued to grow.

In his new book, Get Honest or Die Lying, Charlamagne takes full command of his new perch, broadening his scope and embracing his life roles as a cultural curator, social commentator, job-creator, and Girl Dad in ways we’ve never seen before. In his signature irreverent style, he looks at the world through his own lens, concluding that our divisions, our unhappiness, and our dissatisfactions stem from our failure to have meaningful conversations with each other anymore. With lessons pulled from his past, and an eye on the future, Get Honest or Die Lying makes us laugh, cry, and think as Charlamagne’s shares his thoughts on growth, empowerment, and evolution in our fast-changing world. In short—it’s time to stop lying to each other, and ourselves.

Fame, money, social media, politics, hip-hop culture, and fatherhood, he takes it all on here. In the process, Charlamagne reveals more about himself than we’ve ever seen before. This master of seeing through the B.S. even calls it on himself, as he delivers his most insightful and heartfelt work yet—his call to stop the insanity while we still can.
