Raashaun Casey, commonly known as “DJ Envy,” will serve as the special guest host for the Homecoming Step Show at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB). Set for Friday, October 4, the event will be held in the H.O. Clemmons arena of the Kenneth L. Johnson HPER complex. Doors will open at 5:00 p.m. and the event will begin at 7:00 p.m.
A native of Queens, New York, DJ Envy took his passion for music and started out on the road to becoming the Mixtape Legend and President/CEO of Blok Entertainment. Since the age of 17, he has made tracks in every part of the industry, appearing as a DJ, producer, TV/Radio personality, actor and model.
In the early 2000’s, he began premiering exclusive freestyles by Hip Hop names such as Jay-Z, 50 Cent and the L.O.X. He hosted several shows on Hot 97.1 including Takin’ it to the Streets and The People’s Choice Hit List. Sony quickly signed him and his affiliate label, Desert Storm Records. In early 2003, DJ Envy released his commercial debut, The Desert Storm Mixtape: – Blok Party, Vol. 1. Since then, he has worked with Hip-Hop/R&B legends like Jay-Z, Fabolous, Janet Jackson, Nelly, Cam’ron and DMX.
DJ Envy hosted his own midday show on Power 105.1 in New York before joining Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee as co-hosts of The Breakfast Club. After only two years on Power 105, the show was dubbed the number one radio program in the nation by The Source Magazine and is widely regarded as the most informative and entertaining urban morning show today. The Breakfast Club was launched into national syndication by Premiere Networks in August 2013 and currently airs on nearly 100 stations nationwide, in addition to broadcasting on iHeartRadio.com and the iHeartRadio mobile app, iHeartMedia’s free all-in-one streaming music and live radio service, and Revolt TV.
Premiere also syndicates Weekends with the Breakfast Club, which features the 20 hottest songs on the charts alongside DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God’s signature interviews with megastars. The program currently airs on more than 100 stations nationwide. DJ Envy also hosts a weekly show on Sirius Satellite Radio’s Hip Hop Nation channel where he spins the most requested songs in the nation and interviews some of the most popular celebrities on the air.
