DJ AngelBaby, DJ and radio personality (episode 11)
Regular listeners of 92Q, Baltimore’s hip hop and R----B radio station, know Angel Carpenter, better known as DJ AngelBaby, well. The on-air personality hosts "Rap Attack" on Sunday nights and keeps listeners live Monday through Friday on "The Late Show." In addition to on-air hosting, AngelBaby is also a Baltimore club DJ, and has released her free “Get Pumped” mixtapes for the past four years. Giving back to the community is fundamental to the East Baltimore native, who puts on a “Get Pumped” tour to uplift and motivate Baltimore City youth; she also founded Urban Artemis, a non-profit geared toward educating and mentoring young people in the city, girls specifically. Angel discussed about how she got her start in radio, and about some of the people who have motivated and educated her along the way, including legendary Baltimore club DJ K-Swift, who died in 2008. People are often quick to compare Angel and Swift, which Angel says is unwarranted. AngelBaby also talked about making a name for herself in a male-dominated industry and keeping her focus on what’s next.
