If Drake Died Today, Would He Be On Tupac's Level?

Charlamagne weighs in on what it means to be an icon.

How do music icons become true icons? Is it through their music? Through their larger-than-life personas? Maybe their crazy sense of fashion? The answer probably varies.

For Charlamagne, though, it's simple. When asked, "If Drake died today, would he be on the level of Tupac?" Tha God knew his answer.

"Absolutely," he said on this week's "Pulse Of The People." "Every musician that dies is the greatest ever when they die. I never heard a David Bowie record in my life. But for whatever reason he's one of the greatest of all time now. You know why? 'Cause he's dead."
