Earlier this month marked the arrival of Logic's latest album, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, and with it came shots directed at Breakfast Club radio host Charlamagne tha God. "I don't do the Breakfast Club 'cause Charlamagne is shameless/That's the only one I leave out when I run my bases/Do your research 'fore you call somebody homophobic/You make a living off of controversy and you know it," he rapped on the song "Clickbait."
Charlamagne responded by dubbing Logic the Donkey of the Day, and now he's sat down with Lisa Ramos and Camille Fishel to talk further about his perceived fued with the rapper. At the 1:17:30 point of his appearance on Ramos and Fishel's Pizza and Chill podcast, Charlamagne explained that he thought the diss was an attempt at trolling. "I mean the name of the song is 'Clickbait,'" he said.
Charlamagne also claimed Logic canceled his NYC press tour in response to the Donkey of the Day distinction. "That was what I was told," he said. "He was supposed to do press in New York all of this week. ... I don't know, he was doing a lot of different things in New York but he canceled this whole press run, which I thought was stupid."
Complex has reached out to Logic's representatives for comment.
Of the homophobia remark, Charlamagne recalled, "'Cause I'm sitting there listening to the song and I'm like, 'I never called you homophobic.' Why would I call Logic homophobic? Where would I call Logic homophobic? ... First of all Logic's been on the Breakfast Club before, we did have an awkward exchange once that the internet has manipulated because he was on air and he was randomly talking about his sister being raped. Like, he just started talking about it which is a strange thing to just start talking about."
In 2017, fans highlighted a moment from Logic's Breakfast Club interview in which he brought up his sister's rape, to which Charlamagne bluntly asked who was the culprit. Logic brushed off the question and said he didn't want to talk about it, and now that "Clickbait" has been released fans have resurfaced the moment. Another theory is that Charlamagne jokingly called him a white rapper.
"It looks like I randomly [asked it]," Charlamagne said of the question he posed. "That was awkward, you know, and I can see him being upset at that maybe...five years later. But I never called him homophobic, and he said that Charlamagne is shameless. So?! We should all be shameless." He thinks the line was an attempt to create publicity for his the record.
