when the dust settles and the smoke clears, ill know exactly who will still be here.
Over the weekend our favorite rapper Jeezy decided to have an intimate SuperBowl get together at the Tequila Avion headquarters in New York City. The gathering had special Tequila Avion drinks (Flight 48 & The Limeback), catered food, cigars provided by SmoKings.
Meet Karen Civil, the 29-year-old head of a small but growing empire in digital hip-hop media and strategic marketing. Civil has been carving her own path since her days at Hot 97 as FunkMaster Flex’s intern. She rose from that entry-level position to A&R coordinator to shaping the careers of up-and-coming rappers. Hailing from Elizabeth, N.J., Civil is also a force behind marketing campaigns for Beats By Dre, serving as the brand’s social media manager.
MN Business had a sit-and-chat with Civil about how she started and how she’s creating profitable brands for herself and some of hip-hop’s biggest names. She was mum about the Beats by Dre marketing that we’ll see at the upcoming Olympic Games, but we’ve heard some awesome things are in the works.
