Charlamagne Tha God has often found himself in hot water with the biggest artists in the world. Kanye West, Migos, Birdman and Drake have all had problems with The Breakfast Club host at one point in time.

The internet has amplified the voice of media personalities and given them the power to shape the narratives of artists careers, but how much influence does the media have over what we listen to and what we think about on a daily basis?

In this episode of HipHopDX’s The Breakdown, host Page Kennedy explores how much of an influence the media has on the way fans consume music and the opinions we hold about our favorite artists. We also look at whether you can be successful as an artist in 2019 without the support of the mainstream media.

Furthermore, we examine the effect of media personalities such as Charlamagne, Ebro, Joe Budden, DJ Akademiks and more to discuss how they’ve influenced certain narratives in Hip Hop over the past few years.
