Angie Martinez Hot 97 Exit Fuels War Between Funk Flex & DJ Envy


It’s the war between two New York radio stations, Hot 97 versus Power 105.1! These two stations have been feuding for years. Just a little background, in case you’re not familiar, there was a time when Hot 97 was the number 1 New York radio station on air, that was until, Power 105.1 gained momentum and surpassed them a few years ago. One of those reasons may have been Power’s 105′s The Breakfast Club with Angela Yee, DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God. The feud was reignited, once again, following news that Hot 97′s beloved radio personality and veteran, Angie Martinez, was leaving the station to join Power 105 earlier this week. Although Martinez has kept things classy, we can’t say the same about rival DJ’s, Funk Master Flex and DJ Envy.

Benzino Proposes To Girlfriend Althea With Huge Diamond Ring

Angie Martinez Joins Power 105. 1 After Hot 97 Resignation


Less than 24 hours after announcing her resignation from Hot 97 radio station, Angie Martinez, has joined rival Power 105. 1.

Although we were all shocked when the veteran radio personality announced she had resigned from the family that helped to build her successful career, it seems, it was all for a very good reason.

On their official website the radio station announced, Thursday morning, “It’s official that Angie Martinez will now join the Power 105.1 family for the afternoon drive weekdays 2-6pm.”


Chris Brown Lets Us Know That What He Has With Karrueche Is “Real”


Despite your reservations on Chris Brown and his personal life and relationship with Karrueche Tran, one thing’s for sure, she’s not going anywhere and it’s real.

Tran has faced much criticism for her unwavering loyalty and devotion to the singer during troubled times. In fact, Tran was labeled a “side chick” in a recent VH1 blog about her relationship with Brown.

Let’s do a quick run down, shall we?

From what we know about their relationship, Tran has been humiliated, more than once, for Chris’ indiscretions and even left her to get back with ex Rihanna back in 2012.

Nonetheless, despite what’s been reported whether true or false, Tran remains Chris’ main girl. In fact, that is exactly what he wanted us all to know when he shared the above photo early Thursday morning. Accompanied with the image was the following message, “She a real one!”

Of course, many Karrueche haters continue to ridicule her for staying with the troubled singer. But, let’s be fair, we do not know the couple personally or the contingent of their relationship. What we do hope, however, is that he treats her respectfully from now on and if they’re happy then we’re happy for them.

We wish the couple all the best. More importantly, we wish Chris all the best and hope he’ll be able to put all his legal and personal troubles behind him. And, we look forward to his upcoming fifth album release, X!

What are your thoughts CK readers, are you pro Chrae (Chris+Karrueche) or would you rather focus on the music?

We’d love to hear your thoughts.
