Born as Lenard Larry McKelvey, on the 29th June 1978, in Charleston, South Carolina USA. He is the son of Jehovah Witnesses, but has only revealed his father’s name, Larry Thomas McKelvey, who converted to Islam. His mother was an English teacher. Charlamagne spent his childhood in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, and it was during his teenage years that his life took a turn for the worse. He began selling drugs, and twice ended up in jail after he was caught with marijuana and cocaine.
His third time in prison was because he was sitting in the back seat of a car when a shooting occurred, and refused to co-operate with the police. His father declined to post bail, so Charlamagne tha God spent 41 days in jail before his mother came good with bail money.
Charlamagne then entered night school, and accepted his chance as a radio intern. Over the years, he created the stage persona Charlamagne tha God, drawing inspiration for the name from his drug dealer pseudonym Charles and the Western European ruler King Charlemagne.
He eventually got a position next to Wendy Williams, and co-hosted the radio show with her, but as the time went on, a rift between her and his way of conducting interviews appeared, which resulted in him being fired from the show in 2008. This turned out to be an excellent thing for the emerging radio host with a critical mind; with DJ Envy and Angela Yee, he started the radio show “The Breakfast Club”, which started airing on WWPR-FM, and after three years got into syndication.
