Charlamagne Tha God Speaks About Radio Show Amid DJ Envy’s Possible Legal Drama
"I think The Breakfast Club is bigger than any of us as individuals. I’ve always felt like that."
A lot has happened in a year for iHeart’s “The Breakfast Club.” One-time host Angela Yee left and has her own midday radio show on Power 105, and DJ Envy is caught up in the scandals of his real estate partner, Cesar Pina. Questions have been raised about what direction the show is heading or if there will still be a radio show, especially if Envy gets caught up in any of the legal ramifications of the alleged real estate scam that his partner has supposedly orchestrated. Charlamagne Tha God has commented about that on a recent episode of “Rap Radar.”
Elliot Wilson and Brian “B Dot” Miller spoke to the Black Effect Network’s founder about the situation and what it means for The Breakfast Club in the future. Charlamagne expressed the need to continue with the show, even if he is the last original member standing.
“I think you kind of have to, right? You know what I mean? Because I think The Breakfast Club is bigger than any of us as individuals. I’ve always felt like that.
“My mind… what I always wanted for The Breakfast Club was new talent constantly comes in and is a part of this… is under this umbrella of the club. So whether Angela Yee is there, or I’m there, or Envy’s there, the platform can still continue,” he said to Wilson and Miller.
He went on to say: “I’ve never felt like The Breakfast Club was just a show about three individuals. That’s always where my mind was.”
In October, Entrepreneur reported that DJ Envy’s real estate partner, Pina, was arrested on one count of wire fraud in an alleged investment fraud scheme worth millions of dollars. Although Envy has not been named or accused, his association and promotion of the real estate business have placed him in the crosshairs of the alleged victims. Some of them blamed Envy for his involvement with Pina and said they trusted Envy’s participation in investing with Pina.
