Veteran hip-hop DJ Angie Martinez was seriously injured in a recent car accident, she revealed on social media Monday.
The Power 105.1 host said she suffered a fractured lumbar and shattered vertebrae and will be taking an extended amount of time to recover, although she did not reveal other details.
She is set to undergo surgery today to repair her vertebrae in her lower back.
The timing of the accident is unfortunate, as it comes just weeks after Martinez’s TV series “Untold Stories of Hip-Hop,” premiered on WeTV. Guests on the show have included Cardi B, DJ Khaled, A$AP Rocky, and others.
Martinez is a longtime veteran of New York hip-hop and appears frequently on stage at concerts and industry events, as well as her regular hosting gig on Power 105.
