Special One of the Conscious Daughters has died suddenly.

Special One, nee Karryl Smith, is an artist long affiliated with The Coup and was one of the more infamous rappers that always carried a powerful message in the music.

CMG, the rap partner of Special One, wrote a note on Facebook, revealing the death of her friend.
“Thank you to everyone for your prayers I need them. I am sick over the loss of my sister. The cause of death is still unknown but I will try to share info when I get it. Pray for me and Karryl’s other sisters Jessica and Tonya. We are all together trying to get through this.”

Friends and family have poured their condolences over social media, including Facebook and Twitter.
Activist Dave “Davey D” Cook said on Twitter, “To those of us who knew Special One and to her family and her partner CMG who found her in her apt.. Hugs, prayers & support.”

The Conscious Daughters debuted in 1993 with Ear To The Street and they released two subsequent LP’s, Gamers (1996) and The Nutcracker Suite (2009).
