Charlamagne Tha God was recently awarded an honorary doctorate from South Carolina State University.
Charlamagne Tha God had to go through a lot before getting to where he is now. Growing up in South Carolina, Charlamagne didn't always have the easiest path towards success although he was able to grind it out and eventually became a radio sensation. In the eyes of some, Charlamagne is like a hip-hop Howard Stern who has no problem challenging his guests and engaging in some hilarious dialogue.
His success has gotten him very far and over the weekend, he received a massive honor as South Carolina State University awarded him with an honorary doctorate, which now officially makes him a doctor. On Instagram, Charlamagne explained just how much this honor means to him.

Recently, Coach K from Quality Control also received an honorary doctorate. It's always cool to see such prominent figures being honored for what they've done, and we're sure Charlamagne will have a lot of fun being called doctor on The Breakfast Club.
