Angie Martinez kick started the next chapter in her career today as she took radio host duties on Power 105 today at 2 PM. This comes after serving at rival station Hot 97 for two decades from where she resigned last month. She started the show by spinning Drake’s ’0 To 100′ and continued rest of the show with other hits.

After Swizz Beatz, Diddy and DJ Khaled called in, it was none other than her good friend Jay Z who phone in to congratulate the “Voice Of New York’ on her new venture. The call lasted only for about 3 minutes because Angie rushed it as she didn’t want to go overtime. Believe that.

Listen to the call below and also check out the full show here.

Talk about a throwback Thursday. Before the superstar he is today, Kanye used to have a hustle of a young rapper trying to make it in the industry. One of his movies included rapping at the opening party of Fat Beats store at 6th Avenue in NYC.

DJ Eclipse was the general manager of Fat Beats’ New York store at the time who emailed Complex this never seen before footage of ‘Ye (who was 19 at the time) rapping his heart out to impress the guests.

Says Eclipse:

“The original location of Fat Beats launched on July 14, 1994 which means FB just turned 20 years old! Business was doing so well 2 years in that Joseph Abajian decided to move the store from it’s small 9th St. basement space into a 2nd floor location on 6th Avenue. August 1996 (day?) was the grand opening of the 406 6th Avenue location. It was also the beginnings of our independent movement which had recently started bubbling about a year before.

Yesterday I started converting old Hi8 video tapes to DVD and came across some interesting footage from that day. Now we had a lot of the usual suspects in the place that day such as ILL BILL, Arsonists, Lord Finesse, Adagio, Breeze Brewin, A.L. Skills, Percee P, J-Live, Mr. Live, Chino XL, Al Tariq, Black Attack, Xzibit, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Rawcotiks, Ak Skills, Rob Swift, Roc Raida, DJ Spinna and many, many more. But what took me by surprise was the appearance of this 19-year-old kid who at that time nobody knew. At least in NYC.”
