Angie Martinez has been making major moves in 2014.
This summer, the legendary NYC hip-hop radio diva left her longtime professional home at Hot 97 to join rival station Power 105, in a move that shocked the world of hip-hop radio. Now, Ms. Martinez has become the first radio personality to sign with Jay Z’s Roc Nation management company. “The Roc” issued a tweet welcoming Martinez to the fold yesterday, Nov. 4.
“Roc Nation welcomes multimedia personality @AngieMartinez to the Roc Nation family!” tweeted Roc Nation’s account, including a photo that featured Martinez wearing a Roc Nation hat.
Martinez reportedly doubled her income by joining Power 105.1 this summer, having been at Hot 97 for 25 years and interviewed some of the most legendary figures in hip-hop, including Roc Nation founder Jay Z.
Roc Nation management is home to several notables, including pop superstars like Rihanna and Shakira, as well as hip-hop icons like Kanye West. They also added G.O.O.D. Music rapper Big Sean earlier this year.
The details of Martinez’s deal have not been disclosed.
