DJ Megatron worked for hip-hop and R&B stations in New York, Boston and Philadelphia before becoming a figure on BET’s “106 & Park” music series. He has hosted the show’s “What’s Good” segment and has appeared in movies including 2005′s “State Property 2,” starring rappers Beanie Sigel and N.O.R.E., formerly Noreaga.

A representative for Viacom Inc.-owned BET didn’t immediately respond to email and phone messages.
