LOS ANGELES, September 17, 2018 -- DJ Envy, world-renowned DJ and co-host of the hit national morning show The Breakfast Club, has been nominated for a 2018 BET Hip Hop Award in the "DJ of the Year" category. Other nominees in the category include DJ Khaled, DJ Drama, DJ Mustard and Calvin Harris.
Mentored by DJ Clue, Envy went from creating street mixtapes as a teenager to working with Hip Hop/R&B legends like Jay-Z, Fabolous, Janet Jackson, Nelly, Cam'ron and DMX.
