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).
J-Ro from the Los Angeles hip-hop group Tha Alkaholiks teams up with Europe’s top notch producer Koolade to give y’all a fresh cut called Get Addicted that will be featured on Koolade’s debut album The Makings (Spring 2012). This track was recorded in 2009, but only this summer we decided to shoot a video while on the coast of Croatia in Vodice DJing our summer residency at Club Hacienda. Additional footage was shot recently in Ljubljana, Slovenia while rocking club Cirkus.
