DJ Envy responded.

“Whatever it was… But I’m like, ‘You want me to work with this n***a?’…”

DJ Envy & Charlamagne Joining Forces On 'The Breakfast Club' Proved To Be A Good Move

Despite DJ Envy’s initial hesitancy to co-host ‘The Breakfast Club’ alongside Charlamagne tha God, the move proved to be a great one.

Although the radio show lost one of its co-hosts, Angela Yee, who moved on to launch her own solo radio show in February 2023; it has remained successful.

According to HipHopDX, the radio show’s parent company iHeartRadio recently secured a partnership deal with BET and VH1 to air the show on their networks.

Charlamagne tha God shared a statement in response to the news, as reported by the outlet.

“BET has been the home of so many cultural institutions, like Rap City and 106 & Park, that have shaped a generation.

Those shows laid the foundation for The Breakfast Club to stand on and grow into the cultural institution that we have become. We look forward to carrying on the tradition.”
