Angela Yee: "'The Breakfast Club' as you know it is officially over."

It seems as if the long-running hip-hop radio show The Breakfast Club might be over. Fans of the show have been wondering about its future after one of the co-hosts Angela Yee, tweeted last night (Aug 9): “The Breakfast Club as you know it is officially over.”

Attention has also been concentrated on her previous tweet, where she said, “GOD is good!”, although it’s not immediately clear as to what link this has to The Breakfast Club.

As of yet, Yee’s co-hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God are yet to comment on her tweet.

The Breakfast Club is based in New York City, and is a syndicated radio show that airs across the US. It launched in December 2010 and quickly became one of the most popular channels for hip-hop-oriented news and exclusive interviews with rappers, the latter of which is also shared on YouTube.

One of the most interesting points in the show’s history came back in 2019 when the trio of hosts had a lengthy debate about whether they should allow the disgraced rapper 6ix9ine to return to the show after being arrested on firearms and racketeering charges.

“I feel like he used his gang affiliation to benefit himself,” Envy opined. “You decided to tell on everyone that you was just riding on. You turned on everybody. You get released and now you’re rewarded for it? I just don’t necessarily think it’s a message that I want to do. I don’t want to promote to kids that you go wild and do some stupid ish and you just go tell on the people you’ve done and all of a sudden you come out and can put out records and it’s all cool.”

With regards to the future of The Breakfast Club, this story is a developing one.
