Angela Yee is one-third of the hosts of the number one Morning Radio Show in the world. She is also along with her co-host DJ Envy and Styles P own a juice bar entitled “Juices For Life” in Brooklyn. Angela shared with me earlier this year; she is always coming up with different ways to live a healthier lifestyle. It is a priority for her, especially since she doesn’t get much sleep and isn’t a breakfast person.
I am always trying to come up with different ways to be healthier; we see things around us, it is a priority of ours. If it is not a priority, it should be, and it is interesting because for some like myself who have been doing morning radio for thirteen years. When I was at Sirius XM my mornings started at 8 am which was not as bad, but now I must be to work at 5 am. So, part of me being able to maintain myself is to make sure I eat correctly and full disclosure I never get enough sleep. I do not want to be that person that is rundown, unhealthy, and something happens to me because I was not taking care of myself.
So, every morning I make sure I have enough energy to last throughout the day, I do not drink coffee, I am not a breakfast person, and I cannot eat very much because I become tired. We have to be up early for work, and Envy would enjoy donuts, sodas, and I was watching all of these events happening. I remember when we first started the show at one-point Charlemagne passed out on the floor and had to be hospitalized.
So after the hospital visit for Charlemagne, it opened Yee’s eyes, and she started juicing. When she began juicing, Yee admits that she was uneducated on the subject. So, she decided to start reaching things on her own and then started asking questions.
There is just a variety of things that can happen if you are not taking care of yourself. That is when I decided that I would start juicing, at first, I was not very educated on the subject, and I would go to juice bars to find more information.
A lot of these places serve products that are not fresh, add sugars, and other ingredients that you are not aware of as customers. Style P and Jadakiss were doing ‘Juices For Life,’ and I was impressed by it. I have been studying it for a while, and I confided in DJ Killa Touch who is Jadakiss’s DJ.
I wanted to set up a meeting to talk with Styles about starting a juice bar, and DJ Killa Touch set up the meeting. When Styles and I finally spoke on the phone, he made it clear that he did not want just to open a juice bar because he has been approached on several other occasions. He wants to educate people on being healthier, and we are not doing it for money. We genuinely care about people more than anything else. I thought it would be a great idea to open the juice bar in Brooklyn and Bed Stuy New York.
You can catch Yee along with her other co-hosts DJ Envy and Charlemagne the God on Revolt TV at 9 am EST.
