Angie Martinez has been one of the most prominent voices in New York Hip Hop radio for several years, and she’s gearing up to release her first memoir, My Voice, later this year in May. The former Hot 97 staple, now at Power 105.1, is known best for delivering some of the best interviews and conversations in New York radio, including talks with Jay Z, Tupac and more, and despite the wealth of information she’s shared and helped uncover, there’s more, and My Voice will bring it to readers all over the world just before summer hits.
In addition to the much-talked about talk with Tupac Shakur in Los Angeles, Martinez will delve into the real reasons behind her shocking departure from Hot 97, and interactions with high-profile members of the political and pop culture world, including but not limited to President Barack Obama.
My Voice will undoubtedly serve as an inspiration to young Hip Hop fans everywhere, and per a press release, “personal recollections” of the media maven’s humble Washington Heights upbringing will also be shared, undoubtedly a side to Angie Martinez most of her radio fans have yet to be treated to.
