Based in Atlanta, GA, Ms. Diop will spearhead the discovery and development of new artists across multiple genres. Her addition increases the label’s visibility within a veritable music mecca, placing official roots in the South for the very first time in its history.
About the hire, Mr. Stevenson comments, “Amina has been integral to hip-hop’s 21st-century takeover. Her experience for identifying, developing, and fostering artists from the street to global recognition is an immeasurable asset to our team. She maintains an unbreakable connection to the underground where superstars continually thrive and rise.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Amina on many projects over the years,” says Ms. Goldstein. “She represents the heart of the culture through and through. I’m confident that she’ll contribute a fresh energy and invaluable perspective to Republic as we uncover the next generation of game-changers together.”
