Steven “Steve-O” Brown asks this while scrolling through potential cover options for Big K.R.I.T.’s upcoming mixtape, “4 Eva N A Day,” slated to drop in January. The covers differ slightly but the three guys on the email — Steve-O (K.R.I.T.’s marketing manager), K.R.I.T., and his manager and president of hip-hop label Cinematic Music Group, Jonny Shipes — want to make sure to pick the perfect one before pushing it out themselves.
Steve-O handles the rapper’s marketing; specifically, digital. He’s in charge of the roll-out of K.R.I.T.’s projects and connects for premieres with different outlets, like Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and more. Steve-O’s also co-founder of the Smoker’s Club tour (alongside Shipes) and co-founder of marketing and management company GFCnewyork (alongside “Saint” Louis). Steve-O handles marketing, management and A&R development for artists like Mickey Factz, Smoke DZA, Jesse Boykins III, Mara Hruby, MeLo-X, FKi, and Nakim.
