Publisher's Summary

The New York Times Best Seller

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.

Critic Reviews

“Conversations with Angie are always straightforward and in the moment. She interviews how she lives her life, openly and honestly. After everything she has experienced and everyone she has spoken with, this is just the first half of her story. It’s the right time for her memoir; she is a pioneer.” (Shawn “Jay Z” Carter)

"Whenever New York has an opinion, Angie has always been the voice of reason - the voice we were waiting for to ask the right questions.” (Pharrell)

“Angie Martinez is a true friend and supporter of artists. She's a businesswoman, philanthropist, and a True champion of our culture, who has forever altered the landscape of radio and hip-hop music.” (Jennifer Lopez)

very informative

When I ordered this my thinking was I like her show and wonder what her story is. To my surprise she spoke of her life events and I thought sheesh I thought I knew a lot of celebrity stories. I know nothing lol Angie spoke of good and bad times and how she just continued to push forward. Her story inspires you to follow your dream and don't be afraid to make your own path.

An incredible journey and inspirational stories

Autobiographies are my favourite genre and Angie Martinez truly wrote and shared her story with thoughtful and inspirational messages only a hip hop head could deliver. Im a little late on reading this but Im so glad I finally did.
