Fresh Faces Friday: The Fresh Committee Introduces Ill Conscious
Looking back to last year, we brought you some of the best up and coming hip hop artists from all over the map. This year we’re picking up right where we left off with one of the best MC’s out of Baltimore, Maryland – Ill Conscious
Those tuned into the underground will recognize the name from bringing a fresh innovative approach and holding his own on tracks like Walk with a Gun with Jay Royale & Conway The Machine and Monarchs alongside Reks & Guilty Simpson among other standout performances.
Ill Conscious backed up the hype behind his guest appearances with an impressive 2015 debut album The Essence. He’s only gotten better since, as evidenced by this verse from Supreme Soloist off of his latest project Logistix:
My delegation is like the Sopranos, eating vegetation without the Monsanto
Luchini preparation I’m bumping the Camp Lo, spitting commemoration under Da Vinci’s and Van Gogh’s
Providing smoke with the Kaiser rolls, five and blow, Camino my sight psychedelic like the kaleidoscopes
Pushing my driveway is a ride on the cobblestone
But we conflicted like the diamonds that lie in the Ivory Coast
With his unique blend of consciousness, raw passion, and impressive wordplay the B’more spitter is embarking on a European tour this year which will include stops in Switzerland, Germany, and France among other countries.
Ill Conscious has clearly come a long way and his undeniable skills and experience should take him even further.
