Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to those Who Create It by: Charlamagne Tha God

“P.Y.P (Pick Your Passion/Poison/Procrastination)”

This book, this book, Charlamagne, Charlamagne!

Okay, after seeing so many mixed reviews about this book, I knew I had to listen. Some called the book amazing storytelling while other say that it doesn’t make sense. I don’t feel either way. I believe that the purpose of this book is to inspire those who have a dream to chase it and know that there are no shortcuts to success or as Charlamagne puts it: “put the weed in the bag first”.

I’m not sure why people don’t follow his story. Although it may not be laid in a specific order, Charlamagne does an amazing job giving you a blueprint to HIS success, including his mistakes along the way (business and personal), and never feeling like he should give up. Instead of him trying to take shortcuts to fame, he chose to take the long road and gain as much experience and connections as possible as he spoke his life into existence. He never let a set back or his own mistakes keep him from pursuing his passion once he discovered what it was.

Charlamagne has never been one to bite his tongue or go back on his word and his book displays that he has been this way his whole life. Regardless of what anyone thinks about him, he has proven that being yourself will take you further than living a lie. He inspires us to just be us, regardless of our past. Being yourself and knowing yourself is worth much more than being fake and superficial. This book is probably my favorite book to date. I am beyond impressed by his story but I’m mostly inspired by the sacrifices he made to make his dreams come true. I’m proud of Charlamagne That God for sharing his life experiences while still giving us a real life lesson behind each one shared.

Rating: 4.5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨
