WEST COAST WEDNESDAYS::THE CONSCIOUS DAUGHTERS EDITION








The Conscious Daughters, who emerged in the early-'90s Bay Area
hip-hop, were a female rap duo from Oakland consisting of Carla Green
and Karryl Smith. Their 1993 debut, Ear to the Street, producing and
writing all of the tracks and (along with engineer Eric Valentine)
playing on them as well. The themes of "thug-life" sentiments was the
way of the West Coast hip-hop at the time, and distinctly women's
perspective (particularly on tracks such as "Princess of Poetry,"
"Wife of a Gangsta," and "Crazybitchmadness").
