The Breakfast Club Weekly Recap - 7/7/23
It’s still Fourth of July week, so you already know Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy are getting those vacation days in, but here are some throwback conversations from the year thus far.
Remember when Deon Cole stopped by to talk about his new show Average Joe? That was a good conversation, and he got especially deep and real about how he’s still grieving his mother’s death, especially as an only child who also doesn’t have his father in his life.
“That’s why I try to stay as busy as possible because I be wishing she was here, that she could be here and be a part of this, and people out there that’s going through this know what I’m talking about,” he explains. “Anything good that happen to you, it’s like a bittersweet moment. Even with The Color Purple coming out, I’m not in it, in it like that, but I just wish my mama would have been here to see that and even Average Joe.”
Angel Reese and Flau’jae Johnson of the LSU Tigers women’s basketball team stopped by to discuss their passion for basketball, music, pop cultural moments and more.
Swizz Beatz is also still grieving the loss of DMX, but he revealed to DJ Envy and Charlamagne tha God that had a prolific dream about DMX that let him know he’s in a better place.
“It don’t even feel like he’s gone. It just feel like he’s just away on his just somewhere chillin. And then you know, the anniversary is coming around and I'm just like, ‘Whoa’ or I scroll through my phone and see pictures and it hits me,” Swizz explains.
Finally, end with Kountry Wayne discussing his self-funded movie, Strange Love. On why he self-funded, Wayne said: “You gotta monetize off yourself first, and let the game monetize whatever’s left.”
