RMG Amplify welcomes Role Model Records (RMR) to its growing list of clients. The label, founded in 2010 by Sola Ogunbitan, has blossomed into one of the top upcoming companies in hip-hop. RMG Amplify will be assisting RMR in promoting new projects by Dru Bex, Shopé and newly signed artist to the RMR roster, Lord Badu.
Ogunbitan first connected with RMG's Doc Watson when RMR was a few years old. Then Ogunbitan and Watson met in person later at SXSW and the relationship continued as RMR sees Doc and Derek Minor's company as a role model for its own business.
"Doc has pretty much been a mentor to me," Ogunbitan says, "someone to give me advice and feedback, so it made sense to keep the relationship growing that I already had. What they do with their artists is exactly what we want to do with our artists."[…] Source: Christian Music
