The people at Media Outrage did an interview with an insider at 100.3 The Beat to see if Jigga really did have a role in getting Charlamagne Tha God Fired over his interview with Beanie Sigal. Here’s what they had to say:
MO: Was Charlamagne fired because of his interview with Beanie Sigel?
Person: Yes, I am %100 sure that he was let go because of his interview with Beanie Sigel.
MO: So you’re not speculating like the rest of us right now?
MO: Why would they do that though, knowing that that interview brought high ratings?
Person: You have to understand as I’m very sure that he already does, the station has to maintain an amicable relationship with Jay-Z and his camp because this man is the biggest rapper in the game right now. Infact, he’s not really even a rapper anymore. He’s a business. So you can’t risk ruining a relationship like that just to draw ratings. A radio personality can always be replaced and with the proper set-up, put in a position to succeed. It’s better for the station to replace that person than ruin a relationship with someone who has been on top of the game for years now.
MO: So you are saying that you are really %100 sure that Charlamagne was fired because of his interview with Beanie Sigel?
Person: Yes. I can’t really go into the particulars but that’s what I was told. Is it foul? Yes. This is the business that we are in though.
MO: Thank you very much for taking the time to speak with us.
