Angie Martinez Speaks On And Shares Her Lost Interview With 2Pac

Hmm. last time the Interwebs were abuzz with talk of 2Pac and Hot 97 in the same breath was when it was ‘the world’ vs. Funk Flex ranting about the way Pac talked & moved while he was here. Folks pretty much took the view, “Flex, it’s been decades. Let it die.”

In the video above, Martinez talks about the beat Biggie stole from her, high times at The Tunnel, and a crazy sounding Rick Ross collab that’s locked away in her vaults. Check it out.
