From the digital desk of Chris Conde and Fake Four Inc. :
“As an openly queer rapper, Texas‘ Chris Conde combines the classically detached spheres of hip hop, indie rock and avant-garde experimental art punk of the drag variety. In their sometimes hysterical but always poignant bars, Conde strives to relate to their audience through an honest communication of their personal narrative of overcoming drug addiction, internalized homophobia and self-acceptance.
Chris Conde is a Fake Four Freecember 2019 Alum who has received press shoutouts from NPR’s Tiny Desk series, the San Antonio Current, Texas Music Magazine, and Hip Hop DX. Engulfed in the Marvelous Decay features Ceschi Ramos and offers up production by K Death of Moodie Black, Lazerbeak of Doomtree, and Whatever Cecil with artwork by Squalloscope. Chris’s honest storytelling ability, beat selection, and sharp technical skills displayed across Engulfed in the Marvelous Decay are sure to move you and resonate on multiple levels.”

Despite the lasting effects of COVID-19 and its crippling impact on the live music industry, there are a handful of artists who have continued to persevere in spite of, and Chris Conde is a shining example of this steadfast dedication. Over the majority of 2020, Conde found ways to stay in the public eye, be it video releases, live stream performances or acoustic performances. As 2020 transitioned into 2021, Conde made the announcement that an album was coming on Fake Four, Inc. in the spring, and if the Lazerbeak-produced Mariposa is any indication of what’s to come, then hip-hop heads should prepare themselves for more of Conde‘s signature honesty and insight over some high energy production. Definitely check out the video, run up the numbers and engagement stats, and support your local creatives.
