Since word recently broke out that Power 105’s Angie Martinez would be releasing her memoir, My Voice, fans have made it a mission to try to convince the radio personality to release what could be one of the most intense conversations she had. The interview? You ask. With West Coast rapper, Tupac Shakur.
Back in 2014, Martinez sat down with MTV News reporter and radio host, Sway, to not only speak about what the conversation was like with Tupac but to give fans an insight of the tough decision she had to make when only airing 5-10 minutes of the interview.
“I was literally afraid that someone would die,” Martinez explained. “I thought I would be making a bad decision or worse.”
Now Martinez, will takes us back throughout her 20 years in the hip-hop radio industry and will include more details about her unreleased interview with Tupac in her upcoming memoir, My Voice.
“He was charming and amazing but he was also angry at certain people. And aggressive,” Martinez told People Magazine. “I just felt that the time was so sensitive that some of the things he said would have made the situation worse.”
In her memoir Martinez also shares never-before-seen quotes Tupac gave as the East Coast/West Coast rivalry continued to escalate and her reaction towards Tupac’s death.
“When he got shot, it was horrifying,” Martinez added. “And I was on the radio when it happened. I had to tell the whole city. Mind you there’s no Twitter, no Instagram…People in New York found out Tupac died from me.”
My Voice will be hitting stores near you on May 17.
