 CLAP FOR HER: Angie Martinez Announces New Memoir 'My Voice'

Radio legend “Angie” Martinez aka “The Voice of New York”, will be releasing a new memoir titled “My Voice” in May.

I’m actually super excited, being that as an aspiring radio personality, Angie Martinez is someone in the industry that I admire. Her interviewing skills are always dope, not messy or pushy. But leaves her listeners satisfied. Which is one of the reason’s why her afternoon radio show has consistently been ranked #1. Go Angie!

In a recent interview with People, famous New York hip-hop radio host Angie Martinez shared details about a previously unreleased conversation she had with Tupac Shakur in 1996. “He was charming and amazing,” she remembered, “but he was also angry at certain people. And aggressive. I just felt that the time was so sensitive that some of the things he said would have made the situation worse.”

“He felt like he had been done wrong,” she continued. “He was on a mission. He had an agenda about what he wanted to say, what people wanted to know, and he was very aggressive and poetic… I only aired 12 minutes of a 2-hour interview. I have it still to this day.” A few months later, the rapper was shot and killed, and Martinez found herself announcing his death on the air.

Excerpts from that interview and more will appear in Martinez’s forthcoming memoir titled My Voice. The book hits shelves May 17. J. Cole wrote the foreword. Pre-order your copy here.
