Standing Proud :: Chris Conde’s Solo Debut, ‘Growing Up Gay’, Now Available

a1882660634_10

San Antonio rap representative Chris Conde has something he can truly be proud of in his debut release, Growing up Gay.  The project not only features forward-moving thought provoking production (courtesy of Chris CondeFire-ToolzRyan Joseph Galvan, Venetian SnaresLedef and Casey Keyworth), but lots of forward-thinking in general in terms of topic matter and the way it is handled.  Chris Conde has a fascinating ability to embody the entire spirit of MC’ng in the form of bold statements and wordplay while simultaneously handling what many of the uncultured masses would consider a taboo subject in hip-hop : being gay.  Chris Conde addresses it head on without making it the topic that drives his entire subject matter, which provides a perfect situation for him to flex in a familiar way while standing out from the crowd.  I could go on and on, but it’s best to dive headlong into this project and let Chris Conde show you the way.
