DJ Envy Recalls Making Biggie and Diddy Mad After Putting “Hit Em Up” on a Mixtape

DJ Envy

DJ Envy recalled a moment when he pissed off The Notorious B.I.G. and Diddy during the peak of the East Coast – West Coast rap battle.

In conversation with AllHipHop, Envy reveals he was the first NYC DJ to put “Hit Em Up” on a mixtape during the feud, which caused him backlash.

“I got that record first, and at the time, it was like I know a lot of DJs weren’t going to play it,” DJ Envy said. “At the time, I was behind everybody. When you talk about DJs, it was SNS, it was Craig G, it was [DJ] Clue, it was Kid Capri, just in the New York area. And I was like, ‘I need to get my foot in the door.’ And I was like I’m gonna play this record and then we’ll go from there. We’ll see what happens. So, they gave me the record and I said, ‘This is going to be one of the biggest mixtapes ever.’

“And it went crazy. At the time, I know Big and Puff was mad, but I was getting my foot in the door and it was music. And that’s where it started.”

Cesar Pina and His Wife Facing Arrest After Failing to Surrender Docs to Court

Cesar Pina's Attorney Negotiating Plea Deal in Real Estate Scam Case

Cesar Pina, the former business partner of DJ Envy, is facing arrest. Cesar and his wife, Jennifer Pina, failed to provide the required documentation to the courtroom.

According to AllHipHop, Mark Politan, the trustee representing Whairhouse Real Estate Investments, LLC, is calling for the arrest of Cesar and Jennifer.

The letter requesting the arrest was filed on Feb. 6, 2024, with a request for a formal order of arrest being entered on Feb . 8. The two could be arrested at any moment.

Pina is charged with allegedly defrauding dozens of real estate investors in 2023. Attempting to clear DJ Envy, Pina stated The Breakfast Club host “was never in the room with me” while doing deals.

In a separate statement, Pina denied the belief that Envy was a victim. “That’s the dumbest shit I ever heard in my life. Me and him were partners in the real estate seminars.”

DJ Envy was reportedly prepared to testify against Pina earlier this year, if necessary. According to court documents obtained by AllHipHop, Envy is prepared to take the stand.

“We are aware that on December 20, 2023, the Court issued an Order compelling the production of documents demanded in those subpoenas,” Envy’s lawyer, Daniel Marchese, wrote. “At this time, I am happy to report that on Friday, January 5, 2024, we forwarded our responses and document production to counsel for the Trustee in these aforementioned cases.

“Given the professional back-and-forth between counsel and I since then, it would appear that indeed the responses and the production were acknowledged and received by the Trustee. With this writing, I therefore confirm my client’s compliance with Your Honor’s Order. As I offered to Trustee’s counsel, I will likewise offer to the Court that should sworn testimony (in any form) be needed to affirm my client’s responses and production, he would readily oblige.”

In November, DJ Envy and Cesar Pina were named in a new lawsuit over their real estate business practices. In court documents obtained by AllHipHop, Envy, and Pina are being sued by Derik Deangelo, Chamblin Group Real Estate Ventures LLC, and Reispec Developments LLC.

The suit claims state the two men used their “Flipping New Jersey” seminars as “funnels to draw in victims” to their real estate scam. The lawsuit includes violations of the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, a breach of contract, a civil RICO violation, fraudulent transfer, and more. The plaintiffs are seeking a jury trial and request $2,000,000 in damages.

“During these private consultations and meet and greets, members of the Pina network attempted to ‘size up’ the financial resources of each attendee and solicited individuals with sufficiently high net worth to ‘partner’ with Pina, DJ Envy, and other members of the network in real estate ‘joint ventures,’” the docs read. “During these meetings, Pina also offered his personal ‘consulting services’ wherein he made himself available for one-on-one private meetings with guests at his office for flat rate fees ranging from $1,500 to $2,500 per meeting and more.”

DJ Envy Prepared to Testify Against Former Partner in Real Estate Case if Necessary

DJ Envy Goes Against Lawyer's Advice, Makes Statement Against Rumored Involvement in Real State Scam

DJ Envy is prepared to testify against his former business partner, Cesar Pina, if necessary. According to court documents obtained by AllHipHop, Envy is prepared to take the stand.

“We are aware that on December 20, 2023, the Court issued an Order compelling the production of documents demanded in those subpoenas,” Envy’s lawyer, Daniel Marchese, wrote. “At this time, I am happy to report that on Friday, January 5, 2024, we forwarded our responses and document production to counsel for the Trustee in these aforementioned cases.

As I offered to Trustee’s counsel, I will likewise offer to the Court that should sworn testimony (in any form) be needed to affirm my client’s responses and production, he would readily oblige.”

Last year, according to court reporter Meghann Cunniff, Envy must provide documents regarding Cesar Pina’s Whairhouse LLC bankruptcy by request by Judge Rosemary Gambardella to the court-mandated report by Jan. 8.

If Envy did not meet the deadline he could be arrested and make a mandatory deposition in New Jersey bankruptcy court.

Envy already missed one deadline as Judge Gambardella states Envy did not comply witha subpoena to provide financial and communication documents by Nov. 28. The order also lists Pina and his wife, Jennifer Iturralde Pina, under the same Jan. 8 deadline. If the trio fail, Judge Gambardella could host a hearing “to address appropriate sanctions against Cesar Pina, Jennifer Iturralde Pina and Raashaun Casey for contempt of this Court’s order, including, but not limited to an order for arrest to bring the parties to the United States Bankruptcy Court.”

In November, DJ Envy and Cesar Pina were named in a new lawsuit over their real estate business practices. In court documents obtained by AllHipHop, Envy, and Pina are being sued by Derik Deangelo, Chamblin Group Real Estate Ventures LLC, and Reispec Developments LLC.

Recently, DJ Envy’s cohost, Charlamagne Tha God, spoke with the Rap Radar podcast and revealed that he would keep the show going if Envy was no longer part of the crew.

“‘The Breakfast Club’ is bigger than any of us as individuals,” Charla said. “I’ve always felt like that.”

He added, “I’ve never felt like The Breakfast Club was just a show about three individuals. That’s always where my mind was.”

Cesar Pina’s Attorney Negotiating Plea Deal in Real Estate Scam Case

Cesar Pina's Attorney Negotiating Plea Deal in Real Estate Scam Case

Cesar Pina, the controversial business partner of DJ Envy, is looking to reach a plea deal with federal prosecutors for his role in a real estate scam. According to AllHipHop, court docs highlight the work of Pina’s attorneys pushing for a continuance.

“Counsel for the parties represented that this additional continuance is necessary for effective preparation and to permit the parties to attempt to resolve this case prior to indictment and thereby avoid a trial,” the docs read. “Plea negotiations are currently in progress, and both the United States and the defendant desire additional time to negotiate a plea agreement, which would render grand jury proceedings and a trial in this matter unnecessary.”

Charlamagne Tha God Reveals The Future Of ‘The Breakfast Club’

Charlemagne

Charlamagne Tha God delved into the prospect of his co-host DJ Envy’s potential absence during a recent interview. The discussion revolved around DJ Envy’s real estate scandal allegations with business partner Cesar Pina, prompting questions about The Breakfast Club’s future

Charlamagne Talks DJ Envy

Charlamagne Tha God, co-host of Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, has addressed the potential absence of his co-host, DJ Envy.

In a recent interview on Rap Radar on Nov. 17, Charlamagne discussed DJ Envy’s alleged real estate Ponzi scheme scandal. When asked about the future of The Breakfast Club without DJ Envy, Charlamagne expressed his commitment to the show, stating that it will continue even if he is the last remaining original member.

“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,” Charlamagne said.

New Talent?

Charlamagne drew parallels to Angela Yee, a former co-host who left to have her own show on Power 105, highlighting that the platform can still thrive with new talent under its umbrella:

“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. I’ve never felt like The Breakfast Club was just a show about three individuals. That’s always where my mind was,” Charlamagne added.

There has been no confirmation regarding DJ Envy’s departure from the show or the outcome of his involvement in the real estate scandal. 

The radio cohost was surrounded by controversy after his business partner Cesar Pina was arrested on Oct. 19 and was charged with a real estate Ponzi scheme. Pina later defended DJ Envy on Instagram Live and said Envy had nothing to do with the allegations. 

‘The Breakfast Club’ Moves To BET & VH1

In recent years, The Breakfast Club has made significant moves, including a partnership with BET Networks and iHeartMedia, resulting in their show airing on BET and VH1. However, former co-host Angela Yee decided to pursue her own show, Way Up with Angela Yee, outside of the new partnership.

Amazon Pulls The Plug On AMP

One show that unfortunately was taken away was Nicki Minaj’s radio show, Queen Radio. The show’s cancellation was due to Amazon shutting down their live listening service Amp, which had other shows from Nick Cannon, Lil Yachty, and more.

Joe Budden Reacts to Logic’s “It Was a Good Day” Cover

Joe Budden has nothing for the belief he was jumped over the weekend. Rumors swirled online that Budden was jumped at a New York Strip club. This follows a separate alleged attack connected to his commentary on the real estate controversy of DJ Envy and Cesar Pina.

On Saturday’s edition of The Joe Budden Podcast, Budden revealed that he was approached by a man at a lounge with bear spray. Budden was out with a friend and stated he was warned by the bartender about the behavior of men in the building. Footage surfaced online of the event. Budden states the man behind the camera was Pina’s brother.

After what is believed to be another night out, the rumors of Budden being jumped swirled. Budden’s friend, Tony “The Closer” Robinson, tweeted to shut down the rumors.

“I just heard from Joe Budden he good y’all be hype as shit to say he got jumped,” Robinson wrote. “Like what world we celebrate n***as jumping n***as. He ain’t have a scratch on his face don’t know who he got into it with but he definitely didn’t look like he got jumped.”

Tony shared that this event had nothing to do with Envy and Pina’s case.

Joe would also speak on the issue on Instagram Live with QueenzFlip. “Nigga socked back and popped me one good time but that was it,” Budden said. “I told y’all I eat a punch well, but now we gotta go.”
