Envy further gained DJ Clue?’s respect after the more established DJ hired Casey as a gardener. DJ Clue? was taken aback by Casey’s incredible beatboxing skills while he engaged in his gardening duties.
By the early 2000s, DJ Envy was working with big names like Jay-Z and 50 Cent. He also gained a record deal with Desert Storm and subsequently released his commercial debut album, “The Desert Storm Mixtape: Blok Party, Vo. 1.” Not long afterwards, Envy began to venture into the radio scene.

He then started to host his own radio shows.
In 2010, DJ Envy joined Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God to host “The Breakfast Club.” The show has become quite popular in the urban community, and its success has led to increased exposure for Casey.

Relationships: In 2001, Casey married Gia Casey, a Chinese-Jamaican woman who has become incredibly popular on social media over the years.

Despite going through several “rough patches” and cheating scandals, Gia and DJ Envy have stuck together over the years. The family lives in New Jersey.
Real Estate: In 2017, it was reported that Casey had listed his mansion in Kinnelon, New Jersey for $2 million. He had originally listed the home back in 2014 for 27% more, although he was forced to cut the price significantly after few buyers seemed interested. DJ Envy and his wife Gia Casey initially purchased the home for $2.2 million in 2006. The new price cut would seem to suggest that the couple is content with losing money on the investment.
Situated on seven acres of land in a gated community, the property once hosted a carnival and a petting zoo for a birthday party for one of Casey’s children. The residence itself features six bedrooms, a pool, a spa, a gym, and a six-car garage.
In 2020, it was reported that Casey had purchased another home in New Jersey from none other than Mary J. Blige. The singer had been struggling to keep her home out of foreclosure at the time of the deal, and she was willing to let it go for a discounted price.

Originally purchased by Blige in 2008 for $12.3 million, the residence spans more than 13,000 square feet and features eight bedrooms, a movie theater, a wine tasting room, an indoor basketball court, and a fitness center.
