Angie Martinez, commonly known as the Voice of New York, did an interview on The Breakfast Club this morning to promote her new memoir, My Voice, that’s being released Tuesday, May 17, 2016.
I’m a huge fan of Angie! (I low key want to be the next Angie Martinez) If you’re a fan of hip hop, man or woman, you know and respect who Angie is in the hip hop culture. Her experience and influence in the industry is inspirational. If you watch or listen to her interviews you’ll notice that she has a way of making her guests feel extremely comfortable in a way that, as a viewer, you feel like you’ve eavesdropped in on a conversation between friends. She makes what she does look easy, but there is a real talent, skill, and empathy that’s needed to make someone feel trusting enough to have an intimate conversation.
Angie gets personal in her upcoming memoir. She talks about her life and relationships, an unreleased Tupac interview she did during the peak of the West Coast vs East Coast beef between him and Biggie, her feelings toward different artists (Diddy) and situations (working at Hot 97), and much more. The way she speaks about the book makes it seem like I have an all access pass into her life story in this industry. A written biography that deserves to be on the big screen.
I CANNOT WAIT to read this book!! (PS: My birthday is coming up…) Check out her interview with The Breakfast Club below. (And if you know how I can work for her, please email me! Lol… but for real though)
