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.

    "I finished this book in one day!"

    This was a great read!
    I wanted to know more about Angie, ever since the first time I saw her in person, at an 105.1 event.
    When I found her book on Amazon I knew I had to purchase. I am glad I did, I felt great inspiration from her journey and I know others will feel the same.

    "Inspirational..."

    I learned of Angie from Ladies' Night. I took a gamble on this book and I'm so happy I did. Her story lets you know if you work hard and focus on what you want - big things can happen. I love hearing the book read by the author as well. Only she could add the inflection, etc to her own story. I was needing a push and this book definitely gave the nudge.

    So happy for you Angie!!! Thank you for sharing.

    "great book"

    This was an awesome book. Her voice and tone was very easy to listen. If I don't like the narrator's voice, I don't typically finish the book. Great job Angie!!!

    "Just Amazing!!!"

    I've always enjoyed listening or watching Angie's interviews. This book was wonderful. I felt like I was right in the moments with her. I am a 50 year old woman a mother of one child and this book has inspired me to step outside my comfort zone. The world is waiting for me and it's hand is extended and I am going to grab ahold and let it lead the way!

    Thanks Angie for allowing us in to your world.

    "A timeless classic!"

    How iconic it is to hear the voice behind the Voice of NY to relay her voice in this book. I wouldn't have preferred to read this book any other way!
