Big interview with Charlamagne.

We dug deep on our own mental health journeys and why the Black community could stand more therapy.

“The problem is just the lack of information and I think that we think there’s something wrong with therapy which is so weird because…you don’t have no problem if you’re out of shape, going to the gym,” he said.

But Charlamagne acknowledged that asking for help is difficult, particularly for young black men in urban areas, who grow up in violent neighborhoods and never get out of the situation.

“It’s hard to get help when you’re still in the middle of the hurt – If you’re still in the hood, if you’re still in these bad situations, it’s hard to see yourself on the outside,” he said.

Jay Z came up. 4:44 was great, but could he do more?

“The Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne tha God praised Jay-Z on Monday for speaking out about mental health, but said the rapper needs to do more when it comes to addressing the issue.

“Not enough — not to me,” Charlamagne told “Rising” Hill.TV correspondent Jamal Simmons in response to how Jay-Z has addressed mental health, opening up about going to therapy himself.

“I want Jay to talk about it more, cause’ especially with him and B — Beyoncé — because after ‘Lemonade’ and the ‘4:44’ like we know that Jay cheated and they got back together but I think it’s good to show that process,” he added.
