Charlamagne Tha God Says He Asks Tough Questions And Ain't Afraid of Beanie Sigel

EXCLUSIVE

Charlamagne Tha God's no chump on the radio, and if his direct questioning makes things awkward with a guest or leads to a death threat or 2 ... so be it.

We caught up with Charlamagne in NYC and asked him about tense confrontations ... like the one he just had with Beanie Sigel on "The Breakfast Club" where the rapper not only told him to stop running his mouth -- he issued a thinly veiled threat of real street violence.

Check out the vid ... Charlamagne tells us why he didn't flinch.

Compared to Beanie, Birdman's infamous words don't seem so threatening.
