On Wednesday, DJ Envy alleged that about five years ago he pitched his family show to BET but was told he “wasn’t Black enough.”
While dishing the details on “The Breakfast Club,” Envy shared that BET reached out to Charlamagne to do a show and he “laughed” about it because of what he alleges happened.
When going into detail about it, he stated, “A couple of years ago, when my family was doing a show, what I tried to do is lift up my people first,” he shared. I went to BET and Revolt first because that’s black owned, a black channel. BET responded–this was about five years ago– that I wasn’t Black enough.
Looks like Starz thought he was Black enough. The 43-year-old has a show on Starz with 50 Cent that’s centered around real estate.

I was thinking wouldn’t it be great to see @flipping_nj and @djenvyon Tv, so you can understand the real estate business. Done deal! #STARZPLAY #bransoncognac@bottlerover #lecheminduroiatlanta
