DJ Envy Resigns From Hot 97
Popular Hip-Hop personality DJ Envy resigned from his position at Hot 97 today (November 30) .
DJ Envy worked at the popular New York Hip-Hop station for over 8-years.
He most recently served as the host of Hot 97’s “New At 2,” a successful afternoon show that played new music from 2:00-2:30PM each day.
While at Hot 97, DJ Envy also served as co-host of Miss Jones' morning show, before Jones left to head up a new show on WUSL Power 99FM in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in July of 2008.
“Hot 97 was one of the best experiences in my life,” DJ Envy said. “I will definitely miss that place. It was like my second home….Nah I really had a air mattress there.”
As part of Miss Jones' morning show crew, DJ Envy was involved in a number of controversial incidents.
In 2005, Miss Jones, DJ Envy and personality Tasha Hightower were suspended for two weeks for their part in promoting an off-color song titled “The Tsunami Song" that outraged Asian-Americans.
Additionally DJ Envy feuded with rival DJ Star, who was eventually fired from Power 105.1 in 2006 and arrested for making sexually threatening remarks about DJ Envy’s wife and his 4-year-old daughter.
DJ Envy is the CEO of his own company, Blok Entertainment company.
He has produced tracks for a number of rappers, including Fabolous, DMX, Foxy Brown, Juvenile and others.
