A Music Nerd’s Dream: Dominique Maldonado

“Like if you can argue about something, like really argue about something, you probably are getting into nerd territory.”

That’s the passionate path that led Dominique Maldonado to success as founder of hip-hop showcase Leaders of the New Cool and former manager of Q-Tip who is currently an A&R Consultant, and co-manager of Divine Council.

Complex’s own Jinx caught up with the musical nerd and talked her journey for a thirst of knowledge that lead to active creativity.

“I love learning about the early days of an artist, and how they move through their career, and the people that were involved in that.”
