[pullquote]“Writing this memoir has been one of the most challenging and rewarding tasks I’ve ever taken on,” says Angie Martinez. “I’ve seen a lot and learned a lot, and I’m proud that I’ve been true to myself the whole way.”[/pullquote]

Radio Icon and multimedia personality Angie Martinez will release her first memoir, entitled MY VOICE this coming May through Celebra, an imprint of Penguin Random House. For the first time, Angie will detail her story, which includes an empowering account of her climb to become a multimedia icon in the world of entertainment universally known as “The Voice of New York.”

In ‘MY VOICE’ Angie shares her personal recollections. From her roots in Washington Heights to her formative years being raised by a single mom in Brooklyn, she quickly found her calling while answering phones at Hot 97 as a teenager. After getting her first shot behind the mic at Hot 97, she burst on the scene as a young female jock whose on-air “Battle of the Beats” not only broke records but also became a proving ground for emerging artists like a young JAY Z, she quickly became known for intimate conversations with artists such as her interview with the late Tupac Shakur in Los Angeles. His last no-holds-barred interview has never been discussed in detail– until now.


Angie Martinez also reveals the reason behind her highly publicized departure from Hot 97 to her current home at Power 105.1, where she is host of her consistently rated #1 iHeartRadio afternoon show The Angie Martinez Show. She discloses intimate details behind some of her most notable and compelling interviews, whether it’s mediating feuds between artists or delving into the most controversial issues in hip-hop and pop culture. Her on-air talks range from conversations with key political figures including President Barack Obama to major music icons and movie stars.

‘MY VOICE’ will be available May 17, 2016 at all bookstores and digital retailers.

Entertainment Last Night in NYC

Last Night In NYC: Bryson Tiller Performs at SOB’s for Two ‘Sold Out’ Shows


Last Night In NYC…Invading the local NY entertainment & music hotspot, SOB’s, artist Bryson Tiller brought his entire T R A P S O U L project to the stage, as he performed for not ONE, but TWO of his ‘SOLD OUT’ shows.


Guided us right down Tiller Ave, Bryson delivered hits from his album like: “Rambo”, Ten Nine Fourteen”, “For However Long”, and more along with his major record that broke his stardom streak, “Don’t”.

During Bryson’s set, the talented artist kept his signature mysterious vibe visually in effect, with subtle flashes of colorful undertones and clouds of smoke, not giving off too much for the visible eye — but just enough to draw you into the feel of love, art, passion and pain of his music. Think, the stages of a T R I P P Y  L I F E. A roller-coaster of testimonials.


Congrats to Bryson Tiller on a successful showcase.



T R A P S O U L is available on iTunes HERE.
