Konshens the MC Born Tarik Davis, a talented writer and musician, was born and raised in Northwest Washington, DC. At an early age, he exhibited his musical potential as a vocalist and musician. 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.
