Today, Angie Martinez and MF DOOM celebrate their 43 birthdays.
Famously dubbed, the “Voice of New York” Angie has been a major face and voice of the hip-hop culture for years. Aside from her signature Hot 97 radio program, that’s been the place to be for many of music’s biggest names, Martinez is also a Grammy-nominated artist (for 1997′s “Ladies Night”) contributing hit singles, “Go!!” “Take You Home,” and more.
Let’s not forget about indie’s favorite, MF DOOM, who dropped his underground classic Operation: Doomsday in 1999. Since then the masked supervillian has garnered a cult-like following for his eccentric style and unorthodox wordplay.
Happy Birthday, Angie Martinez and MF DOOM! —Ralph Bristout
