Pinning down Charlamagne tha God’s net worth is a bit tricky. The radio personality earns the vast majority of his money through his radio and television spots. However, it is unknown how many other assets he currently owns that might add to his overall net worth. Born Lenard McKelvey, Charlamagne tha God is a member of the Five-Percent Nation, an offshoot of the Nation of Islam that holds the belief that black people were the first people on Earth, and are therefore gods themselves. The moniker “tha God” comes from this belief. In his younger days, McKelvey landed in and out of jail for various reasons. After getting out of jail for the third time, he decided to turn his life around. He went to night school, and landed an internship at a local radio station. This landed him next to Wendy Williams, who later gained her own television show. He now has his own radio show, The Breakfast Club, where he speaks about topics ranging from social and political issues to Hip Hop music and Hollywood stars. His show is broadcast in both New York City and Houston, giving him a wide audience. He even landed a spot on the hit show Empire, playing as himself.
