Envy didnt get his fame from being on the radio, he got his fame strictly off of mixtapes! Mixtapes put him in the driver's seat to do big things. Clue put him on showing him the game. He got on and started getting his name known. Even had a little tiff wit Kay Slay. When Clue blew up and had formed his Desert Storm record label, he signed Envy. Envy dropped his Desert Storm Mixtape album in '03 to some success and the rest is history. Just to show u that mixtapes can make u a star!
