Charlamagne Tha God Questions Kanye West’s Pete Davidson Diss: ‘What Happened To Jesus?

Kanye West set the internet ablaze when he threatened to beat up Kim Kardashian’s rumored boyfriend Pete Davidson to close out his assist on The Game’s “Eazy” earlier in January. Charlamagne Tha God was critical in his assessment of Ye’s lyrical jab during a recent episode of Brilliant Idiots.

“I thought Kanye’s bar to Pete was corny as hell,” The Breakfast Club co-host said. “What happened to Jesus? What happened to God? You weren’t even cursing on your records, now all of a sudden you want to beat up Pete Davidson. I didn’t respect it.”

Charlamagne took his thoughts a step further when referencing how Kanye admitted to using “backpack rap” to bolster his image and compared it to a potentially similar situation with the “street rappers” he’s been hanging around like Game, Future and Fivio Foreign.

“I think about what he said on Drink Champs when he said he used all the backpack rappers,” he continued. “And now you see him hanging out with all the street rappers now. He’s hanging out with all these guys just so he can say that line.”

“But I want all you street rappers to know, he’s using y’all too. But the difference is, the street rappers aren’t going to be used. They gon’ keep their hands in Kanye West’s pockets, cause wolves don’t make good house pets. And Kanye gon’ learn that.”

Thanks to Ye’s headline-snatching bars while reuniting with Game, “Eazy” soared to No. 49 on the Billboard Hot 100 to give the Compton native his highest-charting hit in nearly 15 years.

Charlamagne Tha God and Kanye West used to communicate on a regular basis, but it doesn’t seem as if that’s the case anymore. The Chicago native is back to work on Donda 2 and Victor Victor Worldwide founder Steven Victor teased that the project’s arrival is coming “sooner than you think.”
