Biography

Area of the NEW YORK hip-hop picture, Angie Martinez got her begin working in radio. Elevated in Brooklyn, Martinez was initially released to music via her mother’s varied musical likes (who was simply a program movie director to get a jazz radio train station). Ultimately Martinez found out hip-hop, and following a brief stint in a Miami radio train station working the cell phones, she moved back again to N.Con.C. and started working at the favorite dance train station Warm 97. Rapper KRS-One motivated Martinez to provide hip-hop a go herself, impressed by Martinez’s improvisational rapping abilities. This resulted in a successful cooperation with Redman, “PULSE,” in addition to dealing with Mary J. Blige and carrying out around the Grammy-nominated solitary “Ladies Night time,” alongside Missy Elliot, Lil’ Kim, Remaining Vision, and Da Brat. Martinez was authorized soon thereafter to Elektra, issuing her debut recording, CLOSE UP and Personal, in 2001.
