Katrillion.com spoke with Angie Martinez about her new album ‘Animal House’, which drops Tuesday (August 20). Last year’s ‘Up Close and Personal’ was a much different album than the new one. “‘Animal House’ is more aggressive,” she said. “My first album, I pretty much did by myself.

“I have a song called ‘Never’ that some people heard, I guess that were thinking it was for Nas, but it’s not. I did that before that happened. I mean, I like Nas. As an artist, I think he’s incredible. Me and him have always been cool. I mean it was a shock to me that he even came at me like that.”
