Charlamagne tha God shares his thoughts on "12 Years a Slave" winning the Oscar for "Best Picture," saying that he's done with slave movies, stating "we're more than that." He adds that he likes "Django Unchained" out of all the "slave movies," because he doesn't feel like Django was a victim.

When asked about the popularity of actress Lupita N'yongo, Charlamagne doesn't deny that she's a beautiful woman, but wonders if she would still be championed if she weren't nominated for an Oscar. He brings up other dark-skinned women like Tika Sumpter and Kelly Rowland, saying that he doesn't hear people saying the same thing about them as they're saying about Lupita.
