ATLANTA, Nov. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Reality TV ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ star Karlie Redd has signed a global multi-million dollar album deal with famed “cryptocurrency label” Legacy Records. To celebrate the partnership, Legacy Records hosted an exclusive red-carpet dinner event Thursday, Nov. 11 at Spice House Restaurant in Atlanta.

Prized industry guests included Rasheeda & Kirk, Spice, Demarco, Jonny Blaze, Lil Bankhead, and more. The label’s guest list included CEO Keishia McLeod, prominent entertainment lawyer Navarro Gray, Chief Creative Officer Walid Azami, and Redd’s manager Ryan Fionda.

McLeod shared her excitement of Redd joining the Legacy team in “What intrigued me most about Karlie is her hustle and versatility. It’s admiring because she truly understands the importance of a diversified skillset; she invests into a well-balanced portfolio, while remaining both humble and hungry. She has already accomplished that of 10 women combined and that tells me Karlie is just getting started! I think she’s just about to step into the most successful decade of her life, and I’m proud to support a strong woman who aims to help others do the same.”

Completing its tenth season, Karlie has been featured in a starring role on “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta”, since Season 1, as well as recurring appearances on “Saints & Sinners” on Bounce TV, amongst other movie and TV roles.

Redd embraced her decision of signing with Legacy Records since she believes they are the best fit in delivering her music to the world. Having a female CEO at its helm, Keishia McLeod, Karlie says, “Keishia truly understands the vision of a female artist in a male-driven industry.”
