It’s been a hot minute since Dr. Umar Johnson swung by your favorite early morning Hip-Hop show. Last week the Pan-African Avenger graced Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy with his presence and gave The Breakfast Club listeners all the knowledge they could handle.
From explaining why the school he’s been working on hasn’t opened its doors yet, to the story behind that now famous picture of him chopping it up with a white girl, Dr. Umar Johnson gets into all the details about his personal life, his opinions on politics and the death of Johnny Cochrane (seriously).
