Publisher's Summary

Angie Martinez is the "Voice of New York". Now, for the first time, she candidly recounts the story of her rise to become an internationally celebrated hip-hop radio icon.

In her current reign at Power 105.1 and for nearly two decades at New York's Hot 97, Angie Martinez has had one of the highest rated radio shows in the country. After working her way up as an intern, she burst on the scene as a young female jock whose on-air "Battle of the Beats" segment broke records and became a platform for emerging artists like a young Jay Z. Angie quickly became known for intimate, high-profile interviews, mediating feuds between artists, and taking on the most controversial issues in hip-hop. At age 25, at the height of the East Coast/West Coast rap war, Angie was summoned by Tupac Shakur for what would be his last no-holds-barred interview - which has never aired in its entirety and which she's never discussed in detail until now.

Angie shares stories from behind the scenes of her most controversial conversations, from onetime presidential hopeful Barack Obama to superstars like Mary J. Blige and Chris Brown, and describes her emotional, bittersweet final days at Hot 97 and the highly publicized move to Power 105.1. She also opens up about her personal life - from her roots in Washington Heights and her formative years being raised by a single mom in Brooklyn to exploring the lessons that shaped her into the woman she is today.

From the Puerto Rican Day Parade to the White House, Angie is universally recognized as a powerful voice in the Latino and hip-hop communities. My Voice gives an inside look at New York City's one-of-a-kind urban radio culture, the changing faces of hip-hop music, and Angie's rise to become the Voice of New York.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Voice?

    As a hip hop junkie, I could feel every moment described in "My Voice," excellent word play Angie, this is a must have


    What does Angie Martinez bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I am glad Angie narrated this story because no one else's voice would match the roller coaster of emotions described in each chapter.

    Yes

    "Amazing. Inspiring. Heartfelt."

    I've always loved listening to Angie, but this book is on another level. I lost count how many times she gave me goosebumps or a lump in my throat with her stories. She's so relatable, true, and mostly, inspiring. It doesn't matter that I happen to be a LONG time fan of Angie Martinez - you'll love this book even if you don't know who she is!

    I'm one of Angie Martinez biggest fan. I've listened to her on the radio for a very long time. Love how real she kept it in this book. The 9/11 part made tear up much respect . I have both of her albums which I love hearing to this date. Thank you for all that you are and have given to us your listeners Angie. There will never ever be anyone like you.

    "Inspirational"

    This book was so refreshing to listen to. Angie is just so real and unapologetic in sharing her story. It was very interesting to hear about her humble start, her loving family, and how each person that was brought Into her life taught her something. It was very cool to hear all about her interview with Tupac.
