It’s funny how ahead of the curve some MCs can be. Chris Conde released Conde Digital as a part of Fake Four Records FreeCember promotion, and nearly six months later, his second single Earth is so pertinent that it could have been written yesterday. Over an ominous, ambient, grimey track courtesy of Moodie Black‘s KDeath, Conde goes in with some extremely urgent and direct pleas to reason as he breaks down just how interconnected we are with the Earth against how neglectful we tend to be. Thanks to collaborator Wayne Fau, the message is delivered without Conde‘s signature visual flashes, instead opting for minimal effects and portrait-style presentations of Conde‘s vital message. Dig the video, leave a like and a comment if you’re feeling it, and share it around for all to experience.

Hot off the heels of his FreeCember debut, Chris Conde has dropped a music video for Conde Digital, the title track off of the aforementioned Fake Four-released EP. The video is a black and white, up front and personal collage of stock footage overlayed and juxtaposed against Conde performance footage. The black and white aesthetic gives the whole thing a David Lynch-style feel, and thanks to the self-direction of Chris Conde and the editing of Scott Newman, the frentic call to action about finding personal freedom leaves images burned onto the brain. Definitely a strong video to represent a strong project, so leave it a like and a comment, give it a share, and keep supporting indie creators!

For fans of independent hip-hop, December is a chance for Fake Four to bless us all with a gift-giving season known as FreeCember. This year, the homie Chris Conde sets it off with Conde Digital, a lyrical firestorm produced in entirety by Moodie Black. The combination of sounds works together, more than likely due to both artists being free spirits that are unafraid of (or possibly unaware of) boundaries or what they represent. This one won’t cost you anything but time, so definitely take advantage and cop it. Spread the gift around for others to do the same. And, above all, support your independent creatives.
