NKHEANYE echoes her excitement. "I love what MONTE and AVERY LIPMAN did. This label is their blood, sweat, and tears. That passion drew me to REPUBLIC. I'm looking forward to helping develop a roster of unique artists that will end up in the mainstream. I enjoy building careers, and REPUBLIC specializes in that. I hope to create history with this team."
Added MCNAIR, "I hope to help further grow the artist roster from a hip hop standpoint as well as help build the label's legacy. It's a groundbreaking company that's not afraid to take chances, and it's one of the most diverse labels out there."
