This week on A Waste of Time with ItsTheReal, we welcome The Breakfast Club's own DJ Envy to the Upper West Side! We talk with Envy about growing up in Queens, riding bicycles with DJ Clue, sharing one turntable with another DJ, spinning at school dances, being the first person in his family to go to college, graduating with a marketing/management degree, the motorcycle accident that changed his life, stealing records for his mixtapes, getting calls from record executives who were not happy, getting calls from Rick Ross who didn't mind Envy hacking his email, how he invented the double and triple-booking, filling in for a pregnant Angie Martinez at Hot 97, doing mornings at Hot with Miss Jones, why he never joined a DJ crew, how he came to the decision to leave for Power 105, what really went down with Birdman, why Cam'ron wanted to fight, his choice for best mixtape of all time, how he feels driving down Canal Street in 2017, and so much more!
