Charlamagne the God is always rubbing someone the wrong way. The radio shock jock is known for his very unfiltered opinions and usually not being in the best graces of the celebrities he talks about on his wildly popular morning show The Breakfast Club. Kwame Brown is the latest person to fall on the wrong side of Charlamagne, but unlike others, he’s pulling up with some heavy accusations to negate the recent things said about him but the radio host.
Kwame Brown’s career in the NBA was polarizing to many. The South Carolina native was drafted first overall by Michael Jordan and the Washington Wizards back in 2001, straight out of high school. Kwame Brown then went on to become one of the most notable draft busts of NBA history. He went on to play for the Los Angeles Lakers, Memphis Grizzlies, Detroit Pistons, Charlotte Bobcats, Golden State Warriors, and Philadelphia 76ers before leaving the league in 2012. He left with the reputation of being one of the worst draft picks of all time and has been the subject of many jokes over the years.
Stephen A. Smith once called Brown a “bonafide scrub.” This lead to Brown unloading a scathing triad on the ESPN personality. He offered to fight Smith one on one in Seattle, “the only city when you can have hand to hand combat without signing a waiver.”

Smith took the high road, admitting that he and several others have been too hard on Brown over the years. When someone tweeted at him to respond, he said “I will do no such thing. I will not waste my time. That man is right; he’s been retired for years, yet all of us have been guilty of getting on him from time-to-time. He has every right to speak his mind. Go for it!”

Charlamagne might not take the high road however. In a recent attempt to “defend” Brown, he decided to list several family issues he claims Brown has been subject too, resulting in his erratic behavior. “Leave Kwame Brown alone,” said Charlamagne. He went on to make serious claims about Brown’s father and brother.
Kwame took to his social media to air out some of Charlamagne’s dirty laundry in retaliation. “R*pist, Charlamagne Tha God. Rape case guy that actually pled guilty and got away with it,” said Brown in his response.
“You wanna talk about a brother that I never met? That my father had children outside of his marriage? Just like DJ Envy cheatin’ a**?” asked Brown. “We gon’ find that girl you r*ped. Allegedly. Matter of fact, we ain’t gotta say allegedly ’cause you on the docket.” Watch the clip below.
