Cipha Sounds has become a fixture on NYC radio thanks to well over a decade of hosting duties at Hot 97. However, it seems that the DJ and comedian is longer part of Team Hot 97. 

“Effective immediately, Cipha Sounds is no longer with WQHT HOT 97 FM,” read a prepared statement from Hot 97’s press rep. “We wish him well on his future endeavors.”

Although he was no longer part of the morning show, Sounds was part of the Juan Epstein podcast with Peter Rosenberg and was spinning on the station in the late afternoon/early evening slot from 3pm – 7pm.

No explanation as to why he is leaving, or whether or not he was fired has been given at this time. “The next move is already underway and I promise it’s going to be huge,” said Cipha in a Instagram post/message announcing his departure.
