Karlie Hustle has been named Director of Brand Relations for 9th Wonder’s Jamla Records, news the company is announcing exclusively through HipHopDX.
In August, Karlie Hustle resigned from her post as Music Director of New York radio station Hot 97.
“For years, I have championed independent artists under the confines of various corporate infrastructures,” Karlie Hustle says in a statement exclusive to HipHopDX. “It was tough, but I celebrated a few good wins. One of those wins became a relationship with 9th and Rapsody that has now led me to this new position. I’m so excited to be hands-on with an independent label like Jamla Records. I now get to be an even more integral part of the successes of artists that I am already such a huge fan of. Our goals to contribute to the culture in a meaningful way are so aligned, that it didn’t much surprise me when 9th called me at the top of the year with this opportunity. Thank you to 9th Wonder and the Jamla Records team. I am humbled to be a part of such an important movement in the current Hip Hop climate.”
