Charlamagne, who is known professionally as Charlagmagne Tha God and whose real name is Lenard McKelvery, was born on June 29, 1980 in the small town of Moncks Corner, South Carolina. He is most well-known for his role as a radio personality and co-host of the award winning radio show, The Breakfast Club. Today, Charlamagne has accumulated a net worth that stands at around $500,000.
His personal brand has been raising significantly in recent years, opening up the opportunity for his net worth to expand even further in the near future. He has said that he is looking to become more involved in TV series and movies, which could increase that number even more.
The Breakfast Club, which also features the personalities of DJ Envy and Angela Yee, has become a major platform for which the three can talk about what is happening in the hip hop and urban communities. The show airs on over 20 different markets throughout the United States.
In addition to his work with radio, he has been featured on MTV and VH1 shows such as Girl Code, Guy Code, and Wild ‘N Out. He also had a guest appearance in Ride Along, which featured Ice Cube and Kevin Hart.
Interestingly enough, Charlamagne got off to a fairly late start in his radio career. This was due to the fact that he spent a few years of his early 20s in prison. After his release, he went on to serve as a radio intern in South Carolina.
His popularity continued to rise while being featured as second mic alongside popular media personality and radio host Wendy Williams. Williams and Charlamagne had a bit of a falling out after his public profile began to rise. For this reason, the show released him in 2008. Even with the issues, Charlamagne maintains today that Williams played an integral role in his rise as a radio host.
