J. Balvin

This week on Angie Martinez IRL Podcast, one of the best selling Latin artists of all time, J Balvin joins Angie for conversation on spirituality, battling depression, living out his purpose, and finding balance in success. In his life, it’s Jose vs. Balvin. In real life, he lives by the motto “The day you think you are a star, you stop shining” a gem from his mother, the person he is most grateful for in his life. To Balvin, being grateful and loyal are the most important things in life. Their conversation on superpowers reveals that J Balvin has unmatched discipline, finds joy in problem solving, and has a hustler mentality that took him from an independent artist in Colombia to Genesis world book record breaking success. He’s a dad now and lets us in on how it’s changed him for the better, made him aware of how fears can be generational, and how important it is to stay in good health. Balvin doesn't believe money and fame are not indicators of success, it’s the balance of family, health, mental and inner peace that equal real success.

City Girls JT

This week on Angie Martinez IRL Podcast, Grammy award nominated, multi-platinum selling hip hop star JT of the City Girls. Straight out of Miami, this born hustler has always been an intelligent girl who wanted to move faster and further. From Burger King to Whole Foods to scammin’ to rapping and topping the charts, JT always had the skills, but she couldn't always break the generational curses. Less than two months after dropping her first record with the City Girls, she was indicted and would later have to go on to serve a federal prison sentence. One week after she was released, a global pandemic happened. Imagine that?

Although she has found love & success, the trauma still rears its ugly head sometimes, and she often feels misunderstood. However, JT is learning how to deal with her life day by day and acknowledges to Angie that she is ready for therapy. The future is bright for JT - she’s rekindled a relationship with her mother, taken on the challenge of rewriting the angry black girl narrative, focused on holding the City Girls together, and mastering what it means to be unapologetically true to herself. Check out JT in a way you have never seen her…. in real life.

Taraji P. Henson

This week on Angie Martinez IRL Podcast, her girl Taraji P. Henson joins her for a candid conversation that only two close friends could have.

Taraji didn’t sign up for fame, she signed up to create art as she believes art has the power to change and affect lives. But what happens when she looks in the mirror and doesn’t feel like she can provide that lift anymore? When things she thought made her happy don't cut it anymore? She has to go on her own journey to find happiness.

But Taraji isn't alone, Angie reveals her own moments of darkness and the awakening she experienced on a trip with Taraji. The two explain what it means to fight for your joy and digest the importance of friends who can save your life.

Their convo also explores managing social media addictions in a healthy way, unshakable faith, and a debate over the importance and need of ego.

In the words of Taraji, If you have a story to tell, tell it.

IRL Take Aways: Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson may be one of the most interesting people walking the Earth and we must protect him. 

We’re back with another IRL #TakeAways. The in-between audio-only podcast where Angie and special guests reflect on episode responses, takeaways, and highlights. 

Does anyone else believe that when someone says something that resonates with you so much you feel it in your spirit, that it somehow shows up later in your life? The conversation Mike Tyson and Angie had about Angels resonated with Angie so much she is convinced she may have run into her own angel, Debbie, from South Jersey. 

But that’s not it!  On this week’s #TakeAways Angie also connects with psycologoist and trauma expert,  Dr. Mariel Bouquet to discuss rage, brain scans, and meditation as a solution.
