Vixen Exclusive: The Breakfast Club on Diddy, Revolt and Their Winning Formula
VIBE Vixen: How did the partnership with Revolt come about?
DJ Envy: I think somebody from Diddy’s side heard the show, was a fan of the show and with Diddy’s launch for Revolt, thought it would be perfect for TV. That person was actually Show N Prez… and then from there they wanted to do it and from there Diddy spoke to the important people at Clear Channel and became a partnership.
Angela Yee: And be clear, Diddy also listens to the show because every time we say something he hears and gets mad, he definitely calls in.
How does it feel to be a part of the network?
Angela: I think it’s exciting because it’s a brand new network, so we’re going to see where it’s headed towards. I think for a lot of people, when you’re starting something new, everyone is so excited about it. It’s just a lot of opportunity for us. We like to be apart of something that’s about to grow into something huge.
DJ Envy: Diddy always calls in and checks in. He’s a fan of the show. He was trying to figure out why artists come up there and open up so much. When you come up there, you feel so comfortable, you like to open up and talk about things you wouldn’t usually talk about, whether it’s Jay Z or Nas or Fat Joe or Diddy himself–they just feel comfortable.
