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.

    "Awesome book!!"

    I absolutely loved this book!! I loved the fact that she was so transparent and honest with her life and experiences. She just gave me so much inspiration. To follow my dreams for a career change that I have wanted to do for a while now. But I was just to nervous to try it. I now have the confidence I needed. Thank you Angie!!

    "My 1st Audio Book But Not My Last!"

    I am old school curl up to a good book I can turn the pages to. I don't even so the e-book thing. But I have heard so many people reference this book that I just had to get it. My goal was to listen for 5 minutes and if it was interesting...I would buy it. 24 hours later and I am done. I LOVED IT! Angie Martinez was a natural at telling her story and reading it. I feel like we are now great friends in my head. Great job!

    "Awesome!!"

    I love that Angie narrated the audio book. It was like listening to her tell the story. I finished the book in 1 day! Not only did the book give us a inside look into Angie's career. There were many "nuggets" of wisdom that keeps you encouraged.

    "Wow just wow"

    This book was beautifully written and formatted I am in awe of her life and honesty. When she talked about 2pac and his death it brought me back to that moment and brought me to tears. I've gained a new respect for her. Well done
