Purified from the lead waters of Flint, Michigan, 25-year-old emcee Con$cious was born Durell Fisher. Now based out of Atlanta, Georgia–a hotbed of up and coming and genre-shifting hip-hop–he’s on the rise with his witty metaphors and hood-hymns that depict the struggle, while also giving hope for that light at the end of the tunnel.

After releasing his single “Somewhere Up Above” in February under Icon Management/7MG, he shows nothing but drive to become the best in the game. Currently, he’s working on his latest untitled project; fans, music junkies, and everyone in between will be in for a big treat.
