The Conscious Tip was launched in January 2011 as an effort to provide a lacking platform that supports quality music and culture. The Conscious Tip’s goal is to embrace, educate, and enhance the African American community and its diasporas through the elevation of positive media and culture. Since launching in 2011, we have worked alongside artists such as 9th Wonder, Miguel, The Foreign Exchange, Elle Varner, Marsha Ambrosius, Bilal, Da Internz, Add-2, Jmsn, and Rochelle Jordan to name a few.
