Charlamagne Tha God Discusses His Book ‘Shook One,’ Mental Health And Kanye West | For The Record

Charlamagne Tha God’s second book ‘Shook One: Anxiety Playing Tricks on Me’ details his ongoing journey of working through anxiety with the help of therapy.


  1. Yeah I don't really care for Charlamagne Tha God that much…. but I felt like the book itself was important to the community so I went out and bought it and read it and I actually did a review on it on my channel… even if you don't like him sometimes you have to separate the mission from the man

  2. So many people are so judgmental. People are out here fighting battles that no one knows about. I feel like if you haven’t walked in that person’s shoes don’t be so quick to judge that person. That’s why there’s such a STIGMA with mental illness. People are UNEDUCATED and so quick to JUDGE. Read. Educate yourselves. Ask questions. Real talk!

  3. OMG!!!! Keep talking Charlamagne. Keep allowing God to use you. Millions are suffering right now and the way the world is going a lot of people cannot deal with the pressure of and this thing called LIFE. The FACT that your talking about it inspires me even more to share my story. We all have a story to share. It’s your testimony. The minute that we are all awake and aware of our mental status it begins to shift the energy throughout the Universe. Stay woke people. Stay prayed up. I keep saying this, but a CHANGE IS TAKING PLACE good and bad. With everything going on with this president. God has the last say. Point. Blank. Period.

  4. seriously fuck post malone for that quote hip hop has been my therapy for 15 years. to this day even young thug can get my in my feelings on a song pause. FUCK POST MALONE

  5. I stopped smoking too cause of the same thing word weed can make your anxiety worse .. anxiety is a real thing I think too overcome it you gotta be conscious of it , make it your friend not your enemy..when you go through things traumatic it can really affect you but we all in this together .

  6. A lot of our emotions stem from healthy feelings needed for survival (ie anxiety made CTG start cameras rolling before Birdman sat down). The problem is when we don’t turn that feeling off. So we have stress, PTSD, anxiety, etc on a constant low level and it starts effecting other areas of our lives. It’s also a major problem during pregnancy and is responsible for a variety of ailments during childhood and even creating risk for diseases to appear in adulthood. Stress causes the body to release hormones and enzymes to get our body ready for flight or fight. Cortisone, epinephrine, atropine, etc that effect heart rate, blood pressure and even diseases like diabetes. Our current society really needs to find ways to chill.

  7. RIP Mac Miller, I feel bad that I choose to listen to “Astro World” over “Swimming” because I thought “Swimming” was going to be sad and depressing. So I gave it a listen after Mac’s passing and I was hooked just off the intro because he was saying things I could relate to at the time. That being said I think “Swimming” is a Solid Calm and chill album you can listen to without skipping a single track.
