As a precocious toddler, he was a guest performer with his uncle's " 2nd Amendment” and by 4, he was attending The Institute for the Gifted and Talented and focusing on the piano and later clarinet.

    As a young child, he began writing poetry and continued to play music wherever there was an audience, usually at church, school, or family gatherings. His creativity developed and his artistic abilities broadened over the years and by the age of 10, Konshens officially fell in love with hip hop. Crediting Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, Ice Cube, Kool G Rap, Guru, Big L, Nas, Tupac and Scarface as some of his early influences, he continued to write and perform. A mere five years later, he became the rapper and backup lead talker for local go-go band "High Image". His band opened for local legends like Rare Essence, Northeast Groovers, & the Junkyard Band also playing numerous shows with Uncalled For (UCB) which at that time was the rival (friendly) band of High Image. High Image redefined the typical go-go band by creating its own music and original lyrics.

    Konshens recorded his first hip-hop song in 2000 with his longtime friend Antonio Graham. One year later, he met his current producer Phillip Carroll of X Factory Studio/Records. Taking advice given from Rich Harrison (co-writer and producer of various songs including Amerie's "one thing", Beyonce's "Crazy In Love" & Destiny Child's "Soldier"), along with the creative minds of Phillip "Producer X" Carroll (or DOC as Konshens refered to him) and Dwayne "Blue" Telesford (his current business manager), Konshens has developed his unique contribution to hip hop.

In 2008 Konshens won Best Rap/Hip Hop Album at the First Annual Velocity Magazine Awards (November,2008) for his debut project released in 2007.

In Fall of 2009 Konshens was awarded with the “Entertainer of the Year” –DC, MD & VA at Velocity Magazines 2009 Entertainment Awards. Along with winning “Best Rap Album” & “Best Male Hip-Hop Artist.”

    To Start off 2010, Konshens won first prize of the “Converse Get Out of the Garage” Urban music contest along with being nominated for the second year in a row for “Best Rap Artist” at the 4th Annual DMV Entertainment Awards (Jan. 17th 2010). In August of 2010, Konshens & His State of Mind was the only hip hop artist/band performing at the 5th Annual International Soul Music Summit in Atlanta, GA.

    Dj Beauty & The Beatz

    Cuz Chicks Rule

    Born in Las Vegas, NV, DJ Beauty and the Beatz was exposed to music by her father long before
    she could even crawl. Riding in the car with him running errands, she realized her own love for
    beats and lyrics. By six years of age, she began recognizing samples used by different artists and
    shouting “air” suggestions to the radio DJ to play certain songs together based on their
    similarities. It was at this point that her mother introduced her to the idea of becoming a DJ
    herself. While she embraced the idea, finding someone to mentor a six year old proved to be an
    extremely difficult task. As an old saying proclaims, “time and chance happens to them all”, it
    just so happened that Sierra met another young DJ who was not only performing at her school
    for a charity event, but was also attending her school. They instantly hit it off and DJ Beauty and
    the Beatz began practicing with him every day after school. Not long after discovering her
    natural talent on the turn tables, her parents decided to invest in her equipment. From there
    she began to gain local recognition and was performing at numerous Las Vegas community
    events.
    Realizing this rare and remarkable talent, her parents packed nothing but clothes into a rental
    car, left everything in Las Vegas behind, and drove to DC to pursue a career for DJ Beauty and
    the Beatz as a professional DJ. Now residing in DC, with a swag of her own, DJ Beauty and the
    Beatz, at the tender age of 12, and 4 years under her belt, is continuing to perfect her craft, a
    task that many adults have yet to accomplish. Since her move in August of 2010, she has DJ’d for
    retailers, clubs, and events to include: National Harbor, Betsey Johnson, Sports Zone, South
    Moon Under, Sushi Rock, Club Tabaq, Barcode, The 9:30 Club, Cheese Burger Baby, the 54th
    GRAMMY DC Telecast party, DC Fashion Night Out, Meet Me Mondays at Carolina Kitchen, and
    countless private events. She’s been featured in music videos and has graced the cover of
    several magazines. DJ Beauty and the Beatz has gained the respect of many of the hottest DJs
    and entertainers, both locally and around the country, for her incredible talent and humble
    composure. DC’s Godfather of gogo, Chuck Brown, told her that she “is a BIG deal” after hearing
    her spin at an event he was attending. Biz Markie told her, over a phone conversation, that she
    was “dope” and that he wanted to spin with her.
    Her petit frame matched with her ability to cut, scratch, and mix has WOW’d the masses and
    has gained her popularity amongst the youth, their parents, and their parent’s parents. She is
    resident DJ for DMV radio personality, Antonio the Cuban Cigar Smoker, on WLVS Radio and has
    DJ Beauty and the Beatz “…cus chicks rule!”
    recently added to her already impressive resume, her own internet radio show, Not Just BeatZ. As a young and budding talent, DJ Beauty and the Beatz is looking
