8/6 Special Guest: Robert Upton aka Kid Conscious
Join Da Teachas Saturday, August 8, 2022 at 9:AM for guest Robert Upton aka Kid Conscious.
Just linked up with Chicago’s own, rapper and actor, Robert “Kid Conscious” Upton while we both were visiting Gary, Indiana the birthplace of the “King of Pop” Michael Jackson.
Robert, and his mother and I had a great conversation about his career, his drive and his will to be a successful actor and artist. Look for Robert on the next,”Da Teachas” podcast August 6, 2022. Or look for him on “The CHI, or Chicago PD.
Robert’s acting and rap career summary:
“Throughout his career as an actor, he has appeared on three major TV networks, seen in more than five televised shows and commercials for Gatorade, Fox’s “Chicago PD,” and Showtime’s “The Chi.”
“Growing up, I looked up to Denzel Washington and Jay-Z. I wanted to be like both of them,” KiDConscious explained. “Growing up, I just wanted to be the best me and implement those dreams into them. I wanted to be seen because, for the first part of my life, I was bullied and told I couldn’t be what I wanted to be. I started this brand to show how confident I can be being who I am authentic,” he added.
His rap career has also been nothing but promising as he steadily made a name for himself, opening for the likes of Polo G and DAX. KiDConscious has also performed at Rhyme or Reason, the House of Blues, and several notable venues all across the country. The depth and fire behind his music have garnered him features on Broadway World, ABC 7, Shade45 Sirius XM, and Power 92.3, among others.”
