Lil Conscious’ life story has truly inspired many other lives who wish to make it huge in America’s vast musical field.
Isn’t it amazing to know and learn about all those people who work with a clear aim in mind and that is to not only excel in their chosen fields but also create an impact with what they do? These individuals, especially young talents, have shown what it really takes to become the best versions in their respective fields. The music industry is a world of its own and it has so far welcomed innumerable talents, but only a few have been able to go beyond boundaries to create their unique niche. We came across one such young musical talent and rapper, whose unique way of rising to the top in the industry by keeping his identity mysterious has also earned him great momentum; he is Lil Conscious (originally Stefan Islas Ross), but the one who adopted the stage name Lil Conscious and has gone ahead in creating a special place for himself in all the music lover’s hearts.
- Turning passion into a profession: Since the very beginning, if anything, that attracted Lil Conscious the most; it was the world of music. Amidst many things that happened in his life, music was something that gave him his calm and always helped him meet his higher self, where he could be himself and completely immerse himself in the art form and take out the best music out of him. This passion of his was something he turned into his profession, which today has made him a hitmaker in the industry.
- Keeping the identity mysterious: Though Lil Conscious always felt he was just like any other kid from the neighbourhood, he still felt there lived a double life inside him. To control his alter ego, he created Lil Conscious to release all his thoughts, emotions and creative ideas through music. He confesses that this has helped him mentally in the process. Even after being so mysterious, his songs have gone ahead in creating records and how.
- Freestyling his way to the top: Lil Conscious in 2019 released his first singles, ‘Ashes’ and ‘Bojak’ across platforms, which has gained him a million streams so far on Bojak alone on SoundCloud. At 17, he had released his first mixtape called ‘Barley Conscious’, keeping his identity mysterious. The next year he dropped a mixtape named ‘Conscious’ and another project the following year called ‘Phase 1’, which is a beautiful compilation of freestyles. All his songs have done extremely well, so much that even ace Canadian rapper Drake danced to his tunes.
- Facing and overcoming obstacles: There was a point in Lil Conscious’ life where he suffered from mental health issues and, in 2016, completely disappeared from social media platforms, only to make a social comeback two years later with still keeping his identity a secret. Initially, he faced rejections in the industry, but artists like Drake supported his talent by posting snippets on stories and dances on videos.
While keeping his identity a secret, Lil Conscious still has managed to earn his loyal fan base that eagerly waits for his songs to get dropped and truly love him for his passion and talent as a rapping artist. Do follow him on Instagram, @lilconscious.
