The Conscious Daughters were an American hip hop group from Oakland, CA. The group consisted of Carla “CMG” Green and Karryl “Special One” Smith. The duo signed to rapper Paris’ Scarface Records in 1993 after passing him a demo tape at a club. Shortly thereafter, they released their debut album, “Ear To The Street.” Their single and video “Something To Ride To (Funky Expedition)” helped The Conscious Daughters gain national recognition. Soon after, they were signed to Priority/EMI Records where they released their sophomore effort, “Gamers.” Many collaborations, projects, and television appearances followed, most notably Rap City, MTV Jams and Soul Train. In 2007, rapper Nas released the track “Where Are They Now (West Coast Remix)”, which featured Breeze, Kam, King Tee, Candyman, Threat, Ice T, Sir Mix-A-Lot and The Conscious Daughters. Their third album, “The Nutcracker Suite”, was released via Guerrilla Funk Recordings on February 10, 2009. In 2010, TCD severed their relationship with Guerrilla Funk Records, and in 2011 they signed a distribution deal with Phaseone/Sony. On December 10, 2011, Smith was found dead at her home. Initially, the cause of death was unknown, but it was eventually determined to be from complications associated with blood clots that reached her lungs. They released the albums “Ear To The Streets” (1993), “Gamers” (1996) and “The Nutcracker Suite” (2009).
