Other Facts To Know
Harassment And Threat To The Family Of A Fellow DJ
For those who have listened to Troi Torain’s radio programs, it would be clear that his abrasive style of broadcasting always courts controversy.
Sometime in 2006, while working for Clear Channel’s Power 105.1 FM, he was irked by something a fellow Disc Jockey – DJ Envy (real name, Raashaun Casey) said about him. This provoked him to the point that he went on-air during his program – Star & Buc Wild Morning Show breathing out threats to the family of DJ Envy, in the same vein, calling his wife and little daughter unprintable names.
His Outburst And Arrest
He took the beef with DJ Envy, a step further by requesting for useful information and tips of the family of Envy while offering a reward of $500 to the person who would divulge the name of the school of Raashaun Casey child.
The outburst of Star as he is called On-Air was termed very provocative and offensive. This eventually led to his invitation to the Police station where his 9mm handgun and a target practice permit were both taken from him and he was subsequently arrested on charges of harassment and endangering the welfare of a child. His woes did not end there as his radio station immediately relieved him from job calling him out on his wholly unacceptable action on the air.

Troi Torain calls himself the Objective Hater and is known to be a hater. He has had public beef with celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Jay Z, Tigger, and rapper – The Game, just to mention a few; with the latter threatening to break his jaw anytime he sees him. The OAP reacted to that by instituting a $10 million lawsuit against the rapper and coincidentally his former radio station – Power 105.1 FM, where the rapper made the statement.
