While DJ Envy is known a lot more these days as a co-host for the morning show The Breakfast Club alongside Angela Yee and Charlamagne The God, his work as an actual DJ and contributions to the hip hop culture should never be undermined. While most hip hop DJ’s aren’t dropping albums the same way the did in the early 2000’s and 1990’s, DJ ENVY takes the leap and drops the first single off of his upcoming album Just A Kid From Queens. Featuring New Jersey’s Fetty Wap and DJ Sliink, DJ Envy‘s latest single is a club banger. As it leans more in the vein of EDM, the production has a Jersey Club vibe to it that DJ Sliink is familiar with. The song was produced by DJ eSentriK, a New York City producer who also makes up one half of production group, TWRK. His signature future-R&B sound that has helped him gain traction also assisted in this track.
“On the set, all I want is loot, baby,” he sings. “For a check, watch my ni**as shoot, baby / Disrespect? You a fool, is you crazy? / Flex, finesse, that’s what I’ma do, baby.” Taking to Instagram, Envy spoke on the inspiration behind the genre-bending track. “When I told [Fetty Wap and DJ Sliink] I wanted my 1st Single to be a joint that I can play at every club I work at…. I needed something for Vegas, Miami, NY, NJ, Houston, VA, Boston, Dubai or Ibiza…or wherever!!! We came up with this banger,” he wrote. “Thank you Every1 for the love and support.”
