The Breakfast Club radio show’s DJ Envy successfully raised over $106,000 for working DJs impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The radio host was able to provide 213 DJs with $500 each as the result of an Easter Sunday fundraiser on Instagram Live to support Envy’s “I Love My DJs” GoFundMe campaign.
Over 12 hours, those who tuned in heard sets from DJ Clue, DJ D-Nice, Kid Capri, DJ Will, Tony Neal, DJ Prostyle, DJ Scratch, and Quicksilva. Furthermore, DJ Khaled gave over $45,000 to the GoFundMe saying via Twitter, “Bless up to the DJs! I saw @djenvy’s go fund me post and heard the goal was to raise 50K for the DJs so I put the remaining $45,255 up. We are here to support each other! We are in this together!”
“During this pandemic, you’ve seen DJs step up to the plate and throw virtual parties to keep the spirits up during this quarantine,” Envy told People Magazine. “It’s tough right now for so many DJs to provide for their families with no bars, clubs, lounges, or events to work. Most don’t have healthcare, savings, retirement plans, or have their businesses set up where they can get a stimulus check. So how can they keep food on their table? I knew I had to help.”
DJ Envy, co-host of Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, has dropped the video for his Jersey club-influenced single, “Text Ur Number.” The track, which features Fetty Wap and DJ Sliink, was produced by Envy and TWRK member Esentrik.
The visual shows Envy, Fetty, and Sliink living large while unknowingly being investigated by the feds. An undercover female agent eventually arranges a raid during a lavish pool party.
“Text Ur Number” serves as the first single off Envy’s forthcoming album, Just A Kid From Queens. The project is his first since 2014’s Full Breach. Vol. 5.
