(Photos) Launching KarenCivil.com


As a junior in college at this time, I knew nothing about the blog world or industry events. My girl Karen called me up to tell me she was starting a blog, and asked if I wanted to help by using my digital cam to record some interviews. Sounded fun, so I was with it! These are a few shots from a few things we did – a Jay Rock interview, Charles Hamilton listening session, studio with Nipsey Hussle, getting Max B and Charles in the studio together, etc.

Fun fact: Karen chose KarenCivil.com at first just to quickly get a name, and we’d spend hours brainstorming trying to think of a different name because she wanted to make it more universal. Obviously, we never came up with anything, LOL!
