Biography

Stan Conaway, better known as Gen, is a hip hop MC from Lawnside, New Jersey. Gen was always surrounded by a diverse array of musical influences from an early age. His parents introduced him to jazz, classical and R&B music as a child. He began to embrace hip hop at the age of 12, with his mother being a steady source of encouragement in his pursuit to master his craft. After reciting a poetry piece as part of a presentation for a college literature class, Gen was told by his professor that "you have a special gift that needs to be shared outside of this classroom."

 

That endorsement was taken to heart as Gen continued to perfect his skills, releasing his first mixtape "Same As Its Never Been", in December 2013. The mixtape allowed for Gen to showcase his skills at multiple venues (including Lyrically Fit) throughout 2014 and 2015, garnering him a reputation as a skilled lyricist with an abstract perspective on current world issues. His follow up mixtape "Between The Rhymes", which was released in June 2015, showcased the evolution in Gen's lyrically ability, subject matter and stylistic repertoire. Radio appearances on shows such as the IIhour Uncut Show on UTM radio and the PluggedIn Show provided Gen with a platform to gain further media exposure. He has performed alongside artists such as PaceWon, Judah Priest, Dave East, Mobb Deep and Scarface at established local venues such as "The Trocadero" and "Voltage Lounge" in Phila, PA. He was also a standout along with many other highly skilled artists in the 2014 D.a.y.Dream cypher (hosted by the well-respected DJ No Phrillz) and the 2016 Marsten House "Exceptional Cypher."

 

Gen's future aims are to ultimately become a master at his craft, reach the ears of a broader audience and push hip hop culture in a positive direction. The "Between The Rhymes" mixtape is available for purchase at https://genmusic856.bandcamp.com/ along with other downloadable content.
