This Is the Song That Got Birdman Hyped Before He Barked on 'The Breakfast Club'

Maybe this makes a little bit more sense now.

Published April 29, 2016

Charlamagne Tha God recently made an appearance on the Brilliant Idiots podcast to talk about Birdman’s recent appearance on radio show The Breakfast Club.

Charlamagne spoke up on the incident where the label boss was scheduled to do an interview on the morning show but instead ended up storming out after a mere two minutes or so, demanding that the host put some “respek” on his name.

So what was playing in the background when Birdman went off? None other than Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.”

"He comes to the radio station, I see him when he walks in, I'm watching him through the glass for like 30 seconds,” the host recalled during the interview. “This is no lie, Eminem's ‘Lose Yourself' was playing, I dunno where it was coming from, I dunno if it was on the radio or if it was in his headphones... but Eminem's "Lose Yourself" was playing, I'm dead a** serious, I'm not making this up. He walks in and goes, "Y'all ready?" and then that's what y'all saw."

Totally makes sense now, no?
