Not only is Karen Civil celebrating her birthday today, but the hip-hop head just inked a new book deal, she announced on Instagram.
This Vixen is the definition of a hustler and her journey to the top of her craft is admired. With her popular “entertainment the civil way” site visited by thousands (KarenCivil.com), this CEO, social media maven and now author formed powerful relationships within the industry.
In 2011, Civil was appointed the Digital Marketing Manager position at Beats by Dre headphone company and has marked her territory as a forerunner in need-to-know circles. She began as an intern for FunkMaster Flex and later moved on to the position of “online media coordinator” for groups like Young Money. As CEO of Always Civil Enterprise, LLC, she focuses on branding her clients, primarily based off their online presence through social media, and promoting a positive lifestyle through Live Civil, a branch of her overall company.
Other accolades and achievements include being listed in XXL’s Top 100 Hip-Hop Sites, the 2010 MTV Hip-Hop MVP title and Billboard’s Twitter 140: Music Industry Characters You Need To Follow. Recently adding to her repertoire, Ms. Civil was listed on EBONY’s Power 100 list 2012, solidifying herself as the “Hip-Hop Blossom” we’ve all grown to love.–Camille Augustin
